About me and my therapy practice

I help people undergoing life transitions through harnessing their creative genius inside. The relationship is at the heart of the work and I use counselling, coaching, energy work, mentoring and teaching to facilitate the process of discovering your true authentic self and mission. 

My principal modalities are counselling (person-centred), life coaching and Usui Reiki Healing. My interests in energy work, shamanism, the divine feminine and Buddhism also inform my work. I am strongly guided by my intuition and energetic connection with you. 

My 1:1 mentorships and stand alone sessions as well as group workshops and retreats all combine the possibilities of counselling, coaching, reiki healing and facilitating creativity.

I specialise in working with transitions, losses of various kinds, uncovering blocks and life-stage issues. These can manifest as depression and anxiety so I also work with these presenting conditions to dive deeper into what is going on for you.  

I am a poet and teacher with 30 years experience of helping adults and young people access their creativity to become who they are, not who anyone, including themselves, expects them to be. 

I prefer long term work of 3 months, and offer a three month mentorship and commitment to a process. The investment and most appropriate payment plan for this would be discussed only at the initial (free) consultation. I also offer online group workshops and retreats.
