About me and my therapy practice

I work with adults over 18 and I am trained in the person-centred and psychodynamic approach. I aspire to work in a way that is non-judgemental, respectful and holistic, taking into account the whole person. I like to work in a way that is embodied, imaginative and creative, helping the client to find resources for growth and healing within their body and their imagination.

Practice description

One of my interests is how unhelpful past experiences may be restricting us or having a negative impact on life in the present. These past experiences can affect how we relate to others in the here and now: the partners we choose, the friends we have and the circumstances we find ourselves in generally.

I am interested in working with those who are initally unsure whether counselling is really for them, perhaps that their difficulties are not "serious" enough but who feel that they are struggling somehow.

I am also open to working with those who are in crisis, who may be experiencing a breakdown of meaning or identity in their lives and supporting people through this transition. When such experiences are not pathologised, they can be seen as the doorway to spiritual emergence or awakening. I am open to exploring this with people, in a safe and non-judgemental space, where thoughts and feelings may change from moment to moment and all is welcome.

Having worked with people from overseas for many years and having lived abroad, I also enjoy working with people from non-British backgrounds or if your first language is not English.

My first session

I offer a free initial phone or online call for you to see how you feel with my way of working and if I might be the right person to help you.

When we meet for an initial session, I usually outline how I work and explain about confidentiality. It is also an opportunity for you to discuss in more detail what is bringing you and to see if you would feel comfortable working with me. If we agree to continue working together, then we would usually meet weekly at the same time for one hour.
