I provide a peaceful space at home, skills and experience for you to explore issues and symptoms that have led you to seek help.
After a spiritual awakening early on in my life, I began practicing meditation, and followed a call to support people living at the end of life. My now 20 years of experience as a senior Palliative Care Nurse has helped me support people in crises and transition with an open heart, calmness, pragmatism and humour. I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor fully accredited with UKCP, and a registered member of BACP. Some issues I have worked with are: anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, living with disability, living with life limiting illness, impact of childhood trauma, suicidal thoughts, concerns around addictions, struggles to connect to body or feelings, sexual expression and identity, existential and spiritual dilemmas, struggling to realise ideals and goals, and looking for meaning, purpose and direction.
The sessions are mostly talking therapy, and also use the imagination and body as resources, through guided visualisation, body awareness, and drawing with crayons. Buddhism and Shamanism implicitly also informs my work. I work short, medium or long term depending on client’s need and ability.
Please feel welcome to contact me via e-mail with any enquiries and to arrange a first assessment. We would then decide if we could work together, and the focus and time frame of therapy.
