Tom’s approach is psychoanalytic in nature which emphasises the importance of the unconscious processes of the mind and how they relate to day-by-day life. His core belief about his work is the absolute importance of people having the chance to speak their truth and to be listened to in an effective manner as they do so. He pays particular attention to the connection between formative experiences in earlier life and the issues that a client is experiencing currently that brings them into therapy.
