Welcome to Chorlton Counselling. All therapists work differently. This page will give you a flavour of the way that I work.

I’m an integrative psychotherapist, by training and by nature. I am not wedded to one approach

My Practice

My practice is psychodynamic, realistic, existential and spiritual.

It is informed by my own, lived experience.

The following thinkers are among those that have influenced my work: Teri Quatman, Mary Midgley, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Irvin Yalom, Gabor Maté.

My Work

My work is founded upon the relationship that develops between therapist and client: the “Therapeutic Relationship”. This work takes time, usually six months, or longer.

We will be looking at patterns of behaviour, the beliefs that were developed in childhood, and how they continue to shape (often unconsciously) our adult lives.

Occasionally, I undertake a briefer intervention; sometimes this involves hypnotherapy.

Therapy Can Empower

Underpinning our work will be an attempt at understanding, and accepting, the human condition. We do not live how we think we should be living; we are not motivated by what we want to be motivated by; we are sometimes afraid and often contradictory.

We suffer. Our relationships may be confusing or unsatisfying. Despite our best efforts, we enact similar behaviours, and keep making similar mistakes. And yet, there is always hope. We can all grow. We can all change. Therapy can enlighten. Therapy can empower.

“To understand all is to forgive all”

War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy
