About me and my therapy practice
Counselling can seem a strange process. It's a brave, life changing step towards fully knowing and understanding ourselves but it can be hard to put your finger on how it all happens. There is no proven one size fits all approach to this work because no two people are the same. I believe the important part is the relationship between the counsellor and the client - me and you. Considering how many of our difficulties can arise from challenges within or around relationships it makes sense that a lot can be healed through a relationship. I am an experienced and skilled therapist with over 12 years experience but maybe more importantly I am an authentic human being with genuine feelings. I understand what it is to be human. I know anger, sadness happiness, contentment. I recognise the importance of fully feeling our emotions but I also know how overwhelming that can be. We may incorporate talking, body/breath awareness and movement along the way. My 'goal' for want of a better word is to help you to be ok with those feelings, to be able to fully feel them and know that they all pass, good or bad and you'll be ok. You can always come back to balance.
Therapy is not about fixing you or making difficult feelings go away but it is about building a relationship of trust where those feelings can be explored and understood through talking, body/breath awareness, maybe movement or art - wherever the journey takes us. Ultimately to where you can start to make sense of your life and begin to shed whatever is standing in the way of you being the only thing you need to be - your real self.
I work from Bewdley and Shrawley but can also visit you in your own home, meet you online or we can take a walk in the woods if that suits!
