About me and my therapy practice

I offer you Person-Centred Counselling Sessions, this means that we work with what you bring to the sessions.  In a one to one Counselling session,  I hope to provide that safe place where you can talk about your situations, thoughts, experiences & feel heard and validated.

This process helps you to connect with your inner world & to sort out what is troubling you or holding you back.  In my own experience I have found Person-Centred Counselling to be very empowering,  it allowed me to discard old belief systems, make appropriate choices & generally feel much happier in myself.

I have many years of experience as a holistic bodywork & Shiatsu Therapist. I am also a yoga practitioner & teacher.  Together  on your  journey we will  explore mental, physical and emotional levels at your pace. When appropriate in a session I may introduce, Focusing, breathing, grounding and or relaxation techniques.

Extensive travel and many years of living in the Netherlands mean that I have an understanding of cultural and social differences. I embrace diversity, it also means that sometimes I can bring a perspective which is outside of our own familiar culture
