Weekly on-line therapy or coaching. I also offer the possibility to organise intense retreats in the UK or in other places. This only applies to clients I normally work with. I offer a first 45 minutes free session . Fees vary : 45-80 pounds per hour. We can discuss openly your situation and decide together.
I do not practice CBT and I have a specific interest in an Integrative approach (Humanistic and Psychospiritual models) based always on the therapeutic relationship, how and what we do together in the sessions. I support anti-oppressive ideas and practice and I am very aware that therapy can be a space where shame and power dynamics can be triggered. I intend to create a very safe space where what needs to happen will happen.
I believe that given the right conditions and support, we all sense and know what we need and are looking for. I trust that all we are and what we do is the best we can do given the conditions of our life. I am against a shaming model that implies that “we can always do better”. By being truly what we are, life might show us new options and ways of relating to each other.
I work creatively (also there is the possibility to use art materials for those who might want that, but it’s not a requirement) and do not expect me to ask you to lie on a couch or for me to be simply an interpreter of what you say. I believe that what you say is what you mean and I do not need to find any hidden meaning. I am against a therapy of suspicion and believe in a therapy of trust.
