My main approach is Person Centered which I combine with an integrative approach using different intervention techniques for short to medium term therapy, blending a variety of therapy styles to suit each individual person's needs.

I believe that for any therapy to be effective, a trusting relationship with your therapist is needed and I take the time in the initial few sessions to build this trust and a safe, comforting environment where clients can feel safe talking about sensitive issues and revealing their inner most personal thoughts and feelings.
