About me and my therapy practice
I offer a warm, safe and supportive space where we can explore, at your own pace, places in your life where you have concerns. Together we can create some space to value yourself and make sense of your experiences. Understanding yourself and your experiences can help you to live a more self-compassionate and fulfilling life, lessening self-judgement and living according according to the expectations of others. I believe that it is possible to develop new ways of being in the world.
I am interested in meditation and mindfulness and like to work with the whole person, which includes the connection between the mind and the body – as trauma, anxiety and stress can manifest itself physically in the body and nervous system.
There may be places in your life where you feel disconnected from others or yourself, affecting your emotional, mental and physical health and wellbeing. I help people work through experiences such as:
* depression and stress
* anxiety and panic attacks
* domestic abuse
* sexual abuse
* bereavement and other life losses
* feeling overwhelmed and not knowing why
* living according to the expectations of others
* negative thoughts and self judgement
* self-harm and feelings of suicide
* menopausal symptoms such as anxiety
* past or present relationship and family difficulties
* attachment trauma
* the experiences of being a Carer
I trained at the University of the West of England (UWE) and am a registered member of the BACP.
I respect diversity in our community.
