Who is Tom Murray? I’ll Try to keep it short.
Selecting and hiring a professional with whom you can open up and share intimate parts of your life is a big deal. I get it! So, if you’ve not already, take that deep breath. That’s it. Here, you can learn more about me and decide whether my style, approach and philosophy are right for you.
Clients tell me that I bring a zen quality to much of my work and that I have an uncanny sense of understanding people, their emotions and motives. I balance this with a straight-forward, no beating-around-the-bush approach.
People, like you, come to me because they desire something different in their lives; they need things to change. Perhaps you’ve seen other therapists and have decided to shake things up a little so that you can achieve progress.
I support you to make that difference happen. More, I’m like a coach for elite athletes who pushes clients towards their potential and get results. Hiring me, know that I don’t hold back. You can expect your sessions to be a true give and take; never the dreaded death stare. I aim to make your minutes with me be impactful. I’m TEAM-YOU, all the way!
My life experiences and extensive training have culminated into an approach influenced by Buddhist psychology, the Work of Byron Katie; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as Gottman Method Couples Therapy. The latter of which is an empirically informed approach to heal relationships. Ultimately, I seek to personalize an approach that fits with your idea of how change could happen in your life.
