About me and my therapy practice

I have trained in a variety of theories which enables me to be flexible in my approach.

I have experience in working with individual clients, couples, and parents who are seeking support with their child(ren).

I hold a diploma in integrative humanistic counselling as well as a relational qualification, Non Violence Resistance certificate, Somatic releases, Bibliotherapy and Theraplay.

The base model I work from is working with the critical self (past self), inner child / anxiety (future self), with an aim to create your own internal compassionate self. By raising your awareness to your habits and reactions enables you to implement changes which empower you towards a healthier, happier you.

Due to my training being group work I am aware of body language and the impact past unspoken words have on the body. I can work with you to release these words and energy to enable you to reclaim your body and own it.

Practice description

Being an adult is tough and filled challenges. When we focus on the future we miss our present and our past informs our future. This can actually keep us stuck and the fear grows. The critical self lives in the past and the inner child/anxiety lives in the future. By creating an internal compassionate self enables us to use the knowledge of ourselves to our advantage, allowing us to move forward. The aim is to empower you to make grounded decisions, reducing anxiety, and enabling you to live fully, in the present, whilst accepting yourself and your story. It is difficult but we will explore this at your pace and together.
