I believe that the most effective therapy takes place in an environment which combines both a supportive and understanding relationship between the therapist and client, as well as a clear understanding of the outcomes the client wishes to achieve.
As well as dealing with the specific issues they bring into therapy, my clients also increase their belief that they can make choices which affect the course of their lives in a positive way. Clients are gently challenged to make those choices.
My style of interaction with clients is warm and collaborative, following a client-centered approach. I seek first to understand, and then together with the client, tailor individual solutions utilising best practice treatment strategies.
