I am a Psychosynthesis Psychotherapeutic Counsellor clinically accredited with UKCP, and a Registered Member of BACP. I am passionate in using imagination, the body and nature as resources, and mirrors of the soul
I provide a warm space for you to slow down and recollect yourself, through telling your story, and learning tools how to protect and care for yourself. I can help you understand how your past, present and potential future are all implicit in the symptoms, issues or longing that has led you to seek therapy. This can give you a deeper experience of who you are, and where you really want to go in life.
I have seen clients for ten years. Some presenting issues I have worked with are: anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, disability, life limiting illness, childhood trauma, suicidal thoughts, self harm, concerns around sexual or substance addictions, and sexual expression and identity. Working with issues, tends to lead on to clients deeper search for purpose and direction in life. Several clients also work with me on integrating spiritual experiences from for example a retreat, into their every day life.
The sessions are a mix of talking therapy and use of imagination and the body as resources, through guided visualisation, feeling in to sensations in the body, and drawing with crayon.
My work as a therapist is also influenced by my twenty years experience working as a Specialist Palliative Care Nurse supporting people living at the threshold of end of life.
I work short, medium or long term depending on client’s need and ability, and I am experienced in working online or through telephone. Please contact me via e-mail with any enquiries and to arrange an initial conversation or session.
