About me and my therapy practice
We all, at times, feel overwhelmed, confused or distressed by life. When things get on top of us, it’s hard to know where to begin but finding the right counsellor can help you make sense of what you’re experiencing and allows you to identify difficult feelings, thoughts and patterns of behaviour within a safe, secure, non-judgemental environment.
I see the process of counselling as a joint venture where together we work towards transforming physical and emotional challenges and obstacles in ways that allow for a fuller connection to yourself, others and the world we live in.
As an integrative, relational therapist I draw from a variety of Humanistic models and approaches, which provides an opportunity to work in ways that best suit your individual needs and preferences. My approach is generally focussed on the here-and-now whilst exploring how the past may be interfering with how we experience the present.
I come from an artistic/theatrical family background and believe my thirty-five year experience within a creative realm gives me an understanding of the creative process and the challenges faced within artistic industries.
I believe we all possess a unique creativity and imagination that can be a powerful tool for change and healing. I bring to my work, as a therapist, an understanding of physical challenges, a warm, open and holistic approach, wide-ranging skills, life experiences and perspectives on a variety of emotional and physical issues.
I practice in accordance with the BACP’s ethical framework for practice that includes total commitment to confidentiality and respect of my clients’ diverse and individual needs.
