If you have found yourself here you might be wondering how therapy can help you.
My way of working is informal and relaxed. I don’t make any judgements or tell you what I think you should do. I begin by helping you to tell me what is troubling you. I listen carefully and support you to make sense of your experiences, thoughts, and emotions. I help you to find meanings, identify patterns, and explore your choices. I support you, to think about
yourself with more compassion and clarity; strengthen your sense of who you are; and, understand your relationships.
If you haven’t experienced therapy before it may be hard for you to believe it can help. Research provides us with evidence that it does. Giving yourself a safe space and some time to be heard by someone who really listens can support you to feel whole, valued, coherent and connected.
I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist offering therapy for individuals either,
for a short time which may be for several weeks, or, for longer, dependng on your choice and needs.
Being an Integrative Psychotherapist means I work in a way which draws on different theories and models of psychotherapy, along with evidence from research. This means my way of working rests on a philosophy and understanding that how we get into difficulties is dependent on our unique experiences so how I work fits your individual needs.
I am located on the border between East Lancashire and North
Yorkshire where I have a welcoming and comfortable office which is convenient for Pendle, Skipton and surrounding areas.
In addition to individual therapy I also provide:
