About me and my therapy practice
I have over 20 years experience in counselling and psychotherapy, initially in Australia and for the past 15 years in Somerset, UK. I use a range of 'integrative therapies' that enable clients to work through challenging issues to discover both cognitive and emotional resolution. At this time I am available for 'in house' and online sessions using Zoom.
With some 40 years working in industry both in the field and in design then training and engaging in, for the last 25 years, personal 'inner' exploration I bring a wealth of 'lived' experience. In The Practice, the client and I explore the underlying causes of the presenting issue using Jungian, Person Centred, Behavioural and Cognitive therapies. Also, where appropriate the Transpersonal realms can be explored by employing the breath and some meditative practices. It is important to meet one's clients, 'where they are at', to be open to their issues and to listen to them without any form of judgement. It is understood that life is a 'journey' and we all experience some form of trauma on the way.
The aim is to assist clients to work through any trauma in order to live an authentic life.
My first session
Initial sessions are of an exploratory nature where we both get to know each other and gain some understanding of the reason for counselling. Developing a sense of trust enables clients to open more fully to the process and allows for positive movement towards the desired outcome.
