My approach to therapy is humanistic. This means that I believe you have the answers you need within your own experience - no one knows you better than yourself. The therapists role though is still powerful and useful. In having you reflected back to yourself it can be an experience which at it's best is transformative What I bring to therapy is a range of tools and skills to help you in this process. More important than these tools alone though is the quality of the relationship I hope we build between us - researchers call this the "Therapeutic Alliance". This is the most important predictor of whether your experience is what you hope it will be, whether you get the change you want. Professionally I am trained and currently registered as a Counselling Psychologist - which qualifies you for most NHS psychologist jobs in a similar way to Clinical Psychologists. I work in the N H S with Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia, helping to run anxiety and hearing voices groups.
