I’m Natasha Edward
I am a humanistic integrative therapist. That means I use several different therapeutic techniques depending on your personal circumstances and what we find works best for you. We are all unique individuals, seeing and experiencing things in our own way and so our therapy needs to reflect that.
We all tend to judge ourselves more harshly for our feelings and actions than anyone else. It is easy to define ourselves by our emotions, but they are not the whole of us. By starting to notice our feelings and giving them a label, we can think about that emotion, understand it better and develop a way forward.
Making the decision to have therapy is a big step which takes courage. At times we all struggle to make sense of our emotional difficulties and it can feel that we are lost without a sense of direction or someone who understands. You need not feel alone any longer. Together we can develop safe, compassionate and confidential space where we can work to explore who you are, what has meaning in your life and what has brought you to where you are now.
