WELCOME

You may consider counselling/psychotherapy when you are experiencing turmoil, low self-esteem, crisis, grief/loss and/or when you feel out of control in your life.  Counselling/Psychotherapy offers you an opportunity to become more aware – while supporting you to effect change and to improve your life.  Therapy can help you gain a greater understanding of yourself and others and support you to live a more meaningful life. 

ABOUT ME

My search for deeper meaning led me on a personal journey to and with my inner self. I know what it feels like to discover something about myself and my patterns of behaviour/thinking/feelings and then learning that I could actually effect change and give me a better quality of life. I feel I bring experiences, enthusiasm, excitement, along with curiosity, warmth, humour etc into my work with others. Some of the issues I work with include e.g. depression, trauma, anxiety, stress, relationship problems, addiction...

 
 

APPROACH

"Unless a butterfly breaks free, it will never fly"

To facilitate getting to know oneself and become more aware I use various forms of creative expression e.g. Labyrinth, Journaling, Visualisation, Imagery, Art, Sand Tray work etc.

I use an integrative, open and curious style – offering respect, a non-judgemental space, warmth, openness, compassion, empathy and humour.

My role is to listen to you and to help you to help yourself. My belief is that the answers to your issues are within you and we work together so that you get to know and understand yourself better therefore helping you to effect change in your life.

Therapy provides a confidential place and space to become more aware of yourself and express yourself and your feelings safely. 

Becoming aware of our deeper selves, how we developed certain behaviours and patterns of coping, we gain greater understanding and compassion for ourselves and others.

We all use coping skills to protect ourselves during difficult times in our lives. In counselling and psychotherapy we can choose to develop new skills and have the opportunity to work through painful issues or traumas we have experienced in the past.

I draw on many theories and my theoretical approach includes; Client Centred, Gestalt, Integrative and Humanistic, Transpersonal, Family Constellation, Shamanism, Holotropic Breathwork etc.
