How I WorkDuring my training at Regent's College, I found a personal connection with the existential phenomenological method of working and its focus on issues affecting day-to-day existence, not just looking at the past but also concentrating on the present and possibilities for the future.By reflecting on assumptions, values and beliefs, we can look at how these affect your way of being and help to understand your experiences.
However, I do not restrict myself or my clients by stringently following any one discipline. I have been influenced by many integrative approaches and this allows me to use a number of other methods should the need arise.
My focus is primarily to provide a supportive, non-judgemental environment where together we can seek to bring clarity and understanding to your personal life experiences and relationships. My role is not to give advice but rather to help you find your own answers and support you in reaching your personal objectives.
If you are new to counselling, you may find it useful to look at the website for the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy or with regard to existential therapy specifically, the Society of Existential Analysis.
