About me and my therapy practice

Hello!

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor with a background in Psychology, Trauma and Women's Health. I offer counselling to adults and specialist therapy to women who have been diagnosed with medical conditions and to those who would like to explore their femininity.

I am particularly interested in working with women diagnosed with exclusive female diseases such as endometriosis and STDs using a holistic approach and people who have suffered from trauma and feel that the experience is impacting their life and manifesting directly in the body and relationships.

Practice description

As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I believe that you are the expert of your own life and we will work together so that you can reach your full potential and develop self-acceptance. Apart from talk therapy, I like to use an approach that connects the body & mind that considers your physical, spiritual and social-cultural layers in therapy.

​I specialise in trauma and believe that in order to heal, a key element is to be more compassionate towards ourselves. So I bring compassion focused therapy techniques to our sessions so you can feel safe to unpack feelings of shame, guilt and self-criticism.

​I am particularly interested in how physical health and mental health are connected, and can emerge from trauma and stress situations. I can use a wide range of integrative techniques such as therapeutic writing, psycho-education, emotional freedom technique, body-mind exercises and breath-work - it will all depend on what you feel comfortable with. 

My first session

At our first session we will explore what you are looking for in therapy and your current needs. Then, if you would like to carry on with the sessions, we will work on setting your personal counselling plan which includes your goals and intention for therapy.
