I am currently offering face-to-face and online support depending on your needs.

About me and my therapy practice

My aim is to help you explore experiences that you are troubled by so you can live with more ease. Perhaps there is a specific issue in the short term you want to overcome, or maybe it's more open ended and you want to reconnect with yourself and make deeper contact with where you are. Whatever is going on, it can be difficult to work through our wounding alone, which is why I offer an open environment where you will be heard and supported to express your desires, fears, hopes and disappointments, and be curious about how and where they affect you.

Practice description

The approach I take to therapy is embodied-relational and humanistic: recognising the way in which we are shaped from our early life experiences and the impacts these have on the here-and-now. My focus however is on meeting you where you are during our sessions, inviting enough space so that you are able to do the same. Often this means working through the relationship we have together, helping you make emotional sense of your experience in an open and creative process that has the potential to lead us both into the unexpected.

I work with clients experiencing various issues, some of which include: a lack of meaning and direction in life, an absence of intimacy with others, unfulfilling relationships, difficulties with sex or sexuality; bereavement, traumatic memories that feel stuck and immovable, or struggles with anxiety and depression. Equally you may feel unclear and this is just as significant a place from which to begin.

Although I am trained and experienced in working through the channel of the body, it is not an imposition nor another "tool" by which I aim to do something with or to you. We may simply become a little more aware of our bodily experience together. This can be helpful in reflecting the themes or issues that occur in your life, or allow you to be clearer about why you feel and think the way you do. However, if you would like to explore your body process then this is something I offer -- often the insights here can be profound and powerful.

My first session

I offer an initial session for £25. 

This is a good chance for you to dip your toe into the water. There will be an opportunity for you speak about what's brought you to therapy as well a chance to see if the space we create together is one that you feel would be helpful to you.
