About me and my therapy practice

Imagine a safe, confidential, containing space where together we explore what brings you to therapy and how your past experience sheds light on your life today.

The relationship between us gradually becomes this space. Healing can happen here. With curiosity we seek meaning and increasing perspective on your situation, using what happens in the sessions between us to provide clues and insights into understanding more about what is important to you, your life and experience.

I hold an awareness of difference and diversity. I will work with you appropriately to address how cultural conditioning and context plays out in your life.

I help you access resources you already have, and identify other resources to draw on that can help you face life's challenges. I keep a balance between holding and challenging you.

We work together to understand pain and suffering as the soul’s call for attention.

According to your preference we use imagination, stories, dreams, creativity, the felt sense of the body. Together we may wonder about links between world issues, societal issues and what you face in your life today.

I draw on my experience of meditation and mindfulness to encourage us into our bodies. This is particularly helpful for managing chronic pain, illness or stress.

I have trained as a death doula and can support you if you are facing bereavement, loss or death.

My first session

You are welcome to contact me for a free 30-minute phone call to find out more about counselling sessions with me.

In the first full counselling session there will be time to bring what you feel comfortable to share about yourself and what you are wanting from counselling. This session will give you an opportunity to find out if you feel comfortable with me and to ask any questions you have about counselling with me.
