About me and my therapy practice
People come to therapy for many reasons. Maybe you are struggling with depression or anxiety, or maybe you are simply feeling that you ‘don’t belong’ or ‘aren’t as important as other people’. You may be suffering from a bereavement, or from trauma or abuse in the past that continues to haunt and affect you.
If these, or other problems, are getting in the way of your living your life to its full potential, and if you have any questions to ask about therapy, do get in touch with me:
I am kind and compassionate. I am empathetic with people in their troubles but our work together can be challenging at times. Making sense of what’s in the way of being your true self can be quite hard work!
My background is in osteopathy. During a long career, I came to feel very strongly that the mind and body can’t be separated and that’s why I trained in psychotherapy. I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and now I work more as a psychotherapist than with the body. However, I’m still very interested in the ways in which psychological stress and trauma can be laid down in the body.
I draw upon a number of disciplines but my training is in Transactional Analysis in which we explore together what underlies your thoughts, feelings and behaviour in different situations. TA offers a number of tools which I believe you will find useful in looking at the world and at relationship.
I will listen to you very carefully. I will never judge you or tell you what you should think - we work together as a team.
My first session
I offer an initial free telephone conversation so that we can get to know each other a little and decide if we want to work together. After that, appointments are charged at £40 per session (one hour) and are, at the moment, online or over the phone. I am available on Mondays and Tuesdays and, when we can meet face to face, I work from Kendal and from my home in Killington
