My way of working is influenced by the Attachment-based psychodynamic psychotherapy of John Bowlby and existential theory. This means that we would work to understand your position towards your current issues within the context of your past relationships, experiences, inner-world and world-view, identifying any patterns or links between present and past as they arise. Through therapy, we seek to understand more fully and come to terms with the legacy of past experience and make meaning from examining unconscious assumptions, reactions and motivations, piecing together the puzzle of what is troubling you.
Ultimately, the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the conduit for change, so we reflect upon the phenomena of what is occurring between us in the room and any feelings that dynamic invokes.
Successful psychotherapy is a supportive journey of self-discovery in which you hold the map and I hold the torch.
