About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling anxious? Depressed? Low self-esteem? I offer therapeutic counselling sessions using talking and nature therapy so you can plant the seeds of awareness and grow change in your life.

Practice description

I (she/her) am a trained integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor and eco-therapy. My training covered children, adolescent and adult treatments. This is important because so often when we are looking at our core wounds they are the conflicts of the inner child. 

My training in Wild Therapy means I am also qualified to work outdoors. Having therapy sessions in the natural environment can feel more comfortable for some people please get in touch if you would like more information about this way of working.

There are many different therapy approaches, but I believe healing occurs in the relationship between the client and the therapist, so when choosing a therapist, contact a few to see where it feels right for you.

My approach is integrative, which means I draw on many healing modalities depending on the needs of my client. I use talking therapy and creative interventions where they may lead to the release of emotional blocks or insight.

As an artist with a background in the corporate world, I can relate to those in the creative field and business. I work with those struggling with depression, attachment issues, abuse, emotional blocks, anxiety, family problems, insecurity, spiritual disconnection, psychedelic integration, grief, loss and low self-esteem.

I have also lived internationally in America, Qatar, Italy, Switzerland and Germany and can sympathise with the many challenges of living and working abroad.

I offer long-term work with clients, but have seen that the seeds of healing can be planted in the space of a few sessions.  

My first session

Each person is the expert on their own healing journey. My integrative approach takes the lead from clients on what they need as there is no one-therapy-fits-all method. This means that each session can be different depending on what comes up in the session.

As an integrative therapist I have various tools to draw from including creative art therapy, drama therapy and talking therapy. As a counsellor I am journeying with my clients. Given the right conditions, the body, mind and soul knows how to heal. The tree always grows towards the light.
