About me and my therapy practice

Talking Therapy

I offer a safe contained, relaxed environment, where we will initially discuss the issues you want to deal with, often several issues will be present at the same time. We will gradually build a holistic picture of your life, looking at your past, present and perceived future. We can explore all aspects of life; emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual, work, home, relationships, friends and family.

I often introduce picture cards and/or stones and other objects for the client to use in a creative way to help with representation, to project or to describe, as sometimes words are not enough, sometimes, there are no words.

Walking Therapy

One of the reasons I love this holistic approach to counselling is because it takes place outdoors in a setting that is by its very nature therapeutic. The client is often more relaxed and at ease in this less formal environment. Walking therapy can equip you with the tools you need to become more solution-focused. By combining physical exercise with counselling, psychotherapy, mindfulness and coaching, you will begin to see improvement in your strategic thinking, enhanced creativity, reduced anxiety, alleviation of stress, improvement around anger issues and reduced levels of depression.

We can meet at a selection of local West Dorset beauty spots, either woodland, open
