Hello. I have been a therapist since 2000. I am also co-founder of City Road Therapy. I offer a place where people can be seen and heard in a way that is a bit different to other kinds of listening. Research shows that this kind of listening can change your outlook and any problems you have in a meaningful way. This personal growth in turn can lead to greater contentment, success and maturity.
Integrative psychotherapy with Rob
I am an integrative therapist who has been working with individuals for many years. My approach incorporates a number of wide ranging influences in which I am trained:
- Psychoanalysis – so we can ‘dig deep’ to the bottom of things
- Humanistic traditions – so I can get really involved when it’s required
- Mindfulness – I have had a personal meditation practice since 2007.
With many issues, being understood and supported is not enough and we need something more. Perhaps you’ve tried talking your problems through with friends, or believe you’ve learnt from ‘life’s lessons’ only to find the same problems re-occurring? Feeling like your current way of dealing with things is no longer working is often a prompt for people to come into therapy and get assistance in developing new personal resources. Some people will need my close personal involvement as a therapist to make changes. Others also need someone involved, but where the therapy space gives them a lot of ‘room to breathe’.
