Therapy with Heather
I believe that where there is life there is hope, and that no matter where a person is when we start working together that through highs and lows, and sometimes sheer grit and determination, we will be somewhere better by the time we have finished working together.
Therapy with me, I hope, is like nature. At times it will be intense, at other times full of learning and discovery, and at other times gentle and nurturing. Although I draw from a range of modalities such as CBT and EMDR, the underpinnings of all my work is within an attachment framework, meaning that at the core of all that I do will be healthy and attuned relationships – with others and within self.
