About me and my therapy practice
When we face indecision, confusion, sorrow, pain, anxiety, anger - all that it is to be human - often our instinctive reaction is to turn away from the feelings; to try to escape from them or to brave them out, telling ourselves, "I'll deal with this on my own". We can become very adept at escaping, through work, exercise, relationships, alcohol, substances, so many options - some more socially acceptable than others!
The more we practice our chosen method of escape, the sense of brave independence hardens into isolation, where we shut down the parts of ourselves that feel love and joy, and disconnect from those around us.
As an integrative psychotherapist and drama and movement therapist, my treatment plan and therapeutic approach are geared towards what the individual client needs. I have a background in working with clients experiencing intense crisis, combining creative tools with a cognitive approach.
I work in a collaborative, relational way, and where useful, share my intervention processes with the client - to become a fellow explorer of the client's past and present, so as to clear the trodden path and begin to shape a new future.
I offer a free confidential phone or video call if you would like to connect while deciding whether to book an initial consultation.
