The one that will help you move forward in your life in a way which works for you. When we first meet we can discuss what issues you’re experiencing and decide together what might be most suitable. My website gives more information on the types of therapy I offer but generally speaking I draw from theoretical frameworks including Adlerian, Existentially based, TA, CBT and Gestalt. I also draw on my professional and personal life experiences.
