About me and my therapy practice
I use an integrative counselling approach which allows several models from counselling and psychotherapy to be used whilst allowing me to adapt counselling sessions to meet an individual client’s needs.
This provides a safe, non-judgemental, confidential and understanding environment in which clients can explore any difficulties or issues in their life and address any changes they would like to make.
My main practice is around bereavement counselling, grief and loss.
I have two areas of special interest in counselling:
- Grief and loss through bereavement and illness. Human suffering through illness and death is an inescapable part of life – through the loss of a relative or friend, a diagnosis of a disabling or life-threatening illness, through natural or man-made disasters on a vast scale. Thinking about these issues and how they make us feel can be difficult but doing this within a safe and non-judgemental environment can help our thoughts towards finding meaning in our suffering.
- Working with clients who have had exceptional transformative experiences that surpass the usual limits of space and/or time, and their associated developmental potential. There are many types and names for these experiences which can be catalysts for exceptional transformation: peak experiences, near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, visions, spiritual awakenings, nearing death awareness and after-death communications. Integrating these experiences into daily life can be a unique and distinctive process.
I also volunteer as a bereavement counsellor at the Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice, Leeds and the Marie Curie Hospice, Bradford.
I am also a qualified Acupuncturist and a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). I have run my own acupuncture clinic since 2005. Through this, I have experience of working with clients’ acute and chronic physical ailments and helping them manage their conditions both physically and emotionally.
As part of the continuum of working with physical and emotional grief and loss, I am a specialist acupuncture volunteer at the Robert Ogden Macmillan Cancer, St James’ Hospital, Leeds, where I offer acupuncture treatments to cancer patients and their carers.
