My approach to psychotherapy is relational. This means that I work on the assumption that in order for a person to be emotionally healthy, he or she must maintain fulfilling and satisfying relationships with those around them.
I also assume that that emotional difficulties are often the result of past relational experiences. Some of my work with clients involves working through unresolved feelings about past relational events.
This relational approach also means that I put the relationship between me and my client at the centre of the work. Whatever we are doing, or talking about in our sessions, we will pay particular attention to the way we are engaging with each other. This will give you an opportunity to learn about your relational patterns, and to learn how to strengthen the quality of your connection with other people.
