About me and my therapy practice
- Free exploratory first session
- Focus on managing both the immediate issues (eg high anxiety, panic attacks) and the deeper themes
- Experienced in working with adults and young people
- Experience in working with issues relating to anxiety, low mood/depression, shame, trauma, grief, bereavement, cancer, body image, relationships/breakdowns and intimacy
I offer what most people think of as 'therapy' - sitting together, talking, exploring thoughts and feelings, working with the parts of us that may feel vulnerable, lost, abandoned, low... and at the same time, I offer an approach that goes deeper than merely fixing the symptoms of our unease, sadness, lack of meaning and sense of disconnection.
Rather than focusing on getting rid of your 'problems', you and I will aim to make sense of them, asking what the deeper part of you may be trying to communicate as you face them.
The problems may well change, or disappear, but as we turn towards this part of us, exploring the hidden valleys, the dark forests and the breathtaking mountain peaks within us, we begin to notice what is being communicated. We listen for the whispers of our deepest self in dreams, images, stories, myth and our body's movements. We may then find that our life naturally changes in ways that weren't expected and yet is richer, more intimate and more meaningful.
