About me and my therapy practice


My practice reflects a lived personal and professional experience of working with women who are on the edges of difficult life events and transitions. I have a special interest in families who are affected by historical abuse, illness, accident, loss, infertility, divorce, etc. Who holds you whilst a child or partner is ill, dying, or even in recovery? Perhaps your own or your partner's history is affecting family life? It may be that your family situation makes it hard to explore the issues around gender identity. I also know from experience that it is often the mundane everyday dance of life, absent of traumatic events or history, that brings anxiety, exhaustion, or disorientation. New motherhood, parenting, loss of intimacy, menopause, singleness, empty nest.. the list is vast.

I believe that we all deserve to exist and experience the world in our unique way. Perhaps you are already on that journey and need encouragement to keep exploring.  Maybe this resonates with you, but the messy everyday dance of life obscures it. It is often difficult to see that we have any personal resources available let alone the potential to exist uniquely. Therapy aims to help you find your way towards, and eventually to that uniqueness.

 Please allow yourself to accept that your experience is valid and permitting yourself to seek help is the first step. I believe that in finding and validating our uniqueness we unlock hidden potential needed to thrive. I would be honored to work with you in navigating an appropriate path toward that.

Practice description

As a Psychosynthesis Counsellor, I often work with imagination, stories, drawing, and guided imagery, believing that they facilitate a gentle connection to our intuition, allowing new insights to emerge and facilitate change. I am equally understanding of the need to simply talk and be listened to with empathy. I can draw on a variety of approaches to help you find new perspectives. If you are comfortable with mindfulness-based meditation I often use this as both a platform from which to view present or past painful emotions and as a tool to take into everyday life.

Areas I can help with include:

  • addictions
  • ADHD
  • anger
  • anxiety
  • bereavement
  • depression
  • disabilities
  • eating disorders
  • grief
  • phobias
  • relationships
  • trauma

 

My first session

This session is a little different, and I may ask more questions as we find out about what brings you to therapy and your own unique story. It's also a chance for you to ask questions about what our sessions might be like. All this may take more than one session.

It is also a chance for us both to see if we can work together. This may be something you need to take away and consider. If you are comfortable, a phone call or email exchange helps us set up times, venue and agree on a timeframe to work together.
