About me and my therapy practice
I am currently offering online (Zoom, Skype, Whatsapp) and telephone counselling and psychotherapy.
Living with anxiety is a natural part of being alive. It is how we respond to anxiety, distress, and emotional difficulty that matters. The approach I work with acknowledges our deep, inherent, natural health, and focuses on what gets in the way of that health.
The more we connect to our authentic selves through exploring our inner lives with acceptance and curiosity, the more we are able to work through our emotional difficulties. This brings with it the potential to retrieve what has become lost to us, and notice our new capacity for growth and change.
Areas I work in are: anxiety and panic, living with authenticity, moving from reactivity to openness, emotional pain and distress, compassion, numbing out and disassociation, identity, gender diversity; LGBTQ; sexuality; relationships.
A holistic approach can help us to move through difficulty and I am trained and experienced in working in the following ways: the felt sense: focusing on noticing our inner life and feelings, feeling our feelings, how the body remembers and holds trauma and stress, how to meet our shadow, split parts of our self; inner child and inner family work, Buddhist wisdom: self and deeper being, facing our pain, suffering and distress, psychodynamic theory: childhood wounds, becoming more embodied and less reactive, trusting our Inner guide and Inner essence, heart intelligence
The therapeutic relationship can offer you a space to be seen and met at depth, where the therapist can mirror and respond to your inner thoughts and feelings, at a meeting point between what is both conscious and unconscious.
This approach is client led, and asks us to deepen into our felt sense of ourselves, and asks us to enquire into what needs our attention.
I am currently offering online (Zoom or WhatsApp) or telephone counselling.
My first session
This is a counselling or psychotherapy session for you to see what working with me would be like for you, and also for you to see what working with a counselling online is like for you. I would recommend giving Zoom a go first, as I feel the visual element can be really helpful for therapeutic benefit. Of course, if you prefer audio only, that's fine - it's your call.
