Keeping your individual experience in focus is central to the way I work and to the counselling I offer. I work to help you find ways to process, understand and overcome the individual difficulties you are faced with. I focus on what’s important to you and the changes you want to achieve.
Problems like recurrent depression, anxiety, difficulty with grief or breakdown of relationships are often linked to experiences in your past. I help you to think about your current issue alongside your history. This enables you to develop an understanding of the root cause of your problem, which in turn helps you to achieve real change. This doesn’t mean that I only focus on your past, but that I take your whole life experience, not just the present day, into account when working with you. In this way you achieve change rooted in your own life experience, a change based on your understanding of yourself.
