ABOUT ME & MY APPROACH
Hi! I'm Owen, a humanistic & integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. I work with a broad range of issues. However I also specialise in LGBTQ+ and Gender, Sexual & Relationship Diversities (GSRD) therapy. This means that in our sessions together, I will provide full acceptance of who you are, regardless of how you identify. I view no person or issue as being more important than another. I see both of us working together as unique individuals. I've seen how life can throw many different challenges which can cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I also believe that such challenges can offer us opportunities to develop and grow - perhaps even flourish!
I work in collaboration with you, on your well-being journey. My aim is to help you find a better sense of who you are. This is done in a safe & confidential space where you are listened to, heard and where you feel accepted for being yourself. What you bring, I feel we will be able to explore together, leading to greater self-acceptance & better inner peace.
Of course contacting a counsellor or therapist can feel daunting. I invite you to click on the link to my website, where you can learn a little about me and where you can see if you think I may be a good fit for you. If and when you are ready, feel free to get in touch, where we can have a brief chat and to see how I can help you on your well-being journey.
