How I can help
At the very heart of my work is offering you a warm, respectful, safe and confidential place to explore and express whatever brings you, without pressure or judgement.
As an integrative-relational counsellor, I have been trained in a variety of techniques drawing upon different psychological approaches and ideas, e.g. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), person-centred and psychodynamic theories.
I support this way of working because it promotes:
- An individual's unique needs, desires, motivations and aims for therapy.
- Our past, particularly childhood, provides a blueprint for our future patterns of relating to others and ourselves.
- The quality of the relationship between client and counsellor as vital to a successful outcome.
- Flexibility and creativity in the therapy room.
The initial work will be building a relationship of trust and understanding what you would like from our time together.
We can build on different ways of exploring your feelings, beliefs and views about your own self and the world around you so you are better equipped to confront and respond to life's challenges.
“Hannah is warm, caring and highly attuned to feelings. I felt safe, supported and listened to. Hannah helped me to identify the root causes of my anxiety and address them. In addition to resolving my anxiety issues, she helped me to deal better with my Dad's death. I’m looking forward not back.”
“I would like to thank you so much for all you have done for me. You have helped me in so many ways. You truly have had such a positive impact in the last 12 weeks.”
“You have been great, warm, intuitive, connected. I feel we had a good relationship that really worked. Thank you.”
“Hannah has been a great support to me. She is personable and helpful and I am extremely grateful.”
