About me and my therapy practice
Do difficult life events and pressures of modern day living leave you feeling stressed and anxious? Do you enjoy good relationships and live your life to your fullest potential or do you find yourself repeating familiar patterns that prevent you from change?
I have 17 year’s experience of supporting adults, children and young people to overcome a diverse range of issues that have impacted on their mental health and wellbeing. Over the years I have supported people in various statutory agencies including a family support service, Women's Aid, a bereavement service and a young person’s centre for 13 to 25-year olds.
I offer to work alongside you supporting you to gain a clearer understanding of your experience, to clarify your thoughts and feelings and to come to terms with inner conflict so that you may find greater harmony and balance in your life.
I believe that the counselling experience of being met in the in the here and now by another who is able to attend to our past, present and future concerns with acceptance and empathy can facilitate the healing of hurts and confusions and can set us free to be who we really are at an emotional, cognitive and spiritual level.
I am an Integrative Counselling which means that I draw on a range of modalities of psychotherapy suit your specific individual needs. I will meet you with warmth, compassion and understanding. I respect that you are the authority of your own needs and will be guided and led by you.
I offer Sand Tray Therapy which you may/may not choose to use. Placing small world figures in the sand supports you to address issues that you may find difficult to vocalise. It can facilitate the opportunity for you to resolve conflicts, to overcome obstacles and to gain self-acceptance.
If you wish to explore a deeper level of awareness. I offer to support you to access higher states of consciousness. I gently guide you to accept all parts of yourself; mind, body, soul and spirit. I can support you to find the cause of an issue or problem, to find something you need to let go of, such as a negative thought pattern and to experience release from emotional pain. This part of my practice is informed by my experience as a Shamanic practitioner.
