About me and my therapy practice
I am a compassionate trauma-informed integrative practitioner with my own deeply lived experience and personal journey. I live and work in central Bath. Alongside many trainings over the years, I am committed to my therapeutic practice and my own path of personal development, healing and spiritual enquiry. My personal experience in life has been extensive and rich. I’ve walked a diverse path so far through life and this has enabled me to bring understanding to working with many people. Development and practices that sustain and resource me on this journey are somatic meditation, embodied enquiry and the wisdom of the natural world.
Since qualifying as a counsellor, I have worked for charities supporting adults and young people with their emotional health and well-being. My work has enabled me to support many people of all ages from diverse social backgrounds, different cultures, working with neurodiversity and varying genders and sexualities. As well as my private practice in central Bath where I work with adults and young people, I am a counsellor in a further education college in Bath and I also work for a Family Counselling Trust charity providing counselling for children, young people and their families. I have worked as a counsellor for an eating disorder charity and I was the LGBTQ+ counsellor for a mental health charity in Bath. My previous career has been diverse allowing me to work with people from all walks of life. As a manager responsible for the co-ordination of youth work services throughout areas of Somerset, within education and charities supporting homeless people, young adult mental health and people with eating disorders.
Alongside my person-centred core training, my practice has naturally gravitated to become influenced by the integration of Eastern and Western philosophies about the bodymind and selfhood. I am currently studying a four year in-depth psychotherapy training in Mindfulness-Based Core-Process Psychotherapy with the Karuna Institute.
My enthusiasm as a therapist embodies the healing qualities of compassion and the wisdom of our somatic archeology involving the connections and un-earthing of the stories that live within our bodies, within our psychology and our spirit. All practising Core-Process psychotherapists are expected to maintain a daily meditation practice. This helps sustain awareness and develop a resonant relational field of presence from which to pay close attention and hold clients at depth. My work is also informed through bodymind theories and practice combining somatic-based trauma therapy, compassion-focused therapy and relational mindfulness which are intrinsic to my therapeutic practice.
I believe that body and mind need to be present for healing to occur. Enabling people to find connections to their inner authenticity and wisdom so they can feel less identified with their traumatic stories, patterns and conditions and more present to their true sense of themselves.
Each therapeutic relationship is unique. My approach is creative and holistic bringing trauma-informed somatic therapy and Core-Process Psychotherapy together, allowing a depth that promotes intentional, and conscious healing. What motivates my work is that I see the potential in every client and honour the wisdom of your own inner healer. My wish is to create opportunities for you to follow your process as it unfolds and reconnect to your deeper sense of self in the present feeling less identified with patterns and disconnection in the past.
