I am an empathic and experienced Psychosynthesis Therapeutic Counsellor, with many years experience in working with adult relationship issues within families where there have been addictions. Working in various settings such as Primary Care, Substance Mis-use and Addiction Treatment Services, my main fields of work and interest are in facilitating, improved relationships with self and others, increased self-knowledge, self-esteem and coping strategies, along with better communication and reconnecting with purpose, meaning and value in life after difficult times.
I like to include creative methods of self expression, such as art making and writing, in our work together. This can include connecting with the outside and animals, as well as, talking, as a means to self discovery. I am experienced in helping those to recover from all addictions, including behavioural ones, such as, eating dis-orders and gambling, and obsessive compulsive disorders.
I work gently and kindly with those who are recovering from complex issues of grief and loss, trauma and childhood abuse and low self worth. I will adjust the pace of work to suit you, always being guided by you, and sensitive to your individual process and journey. Together it is my experience that you can move towards re-connecting with the person you were always meant to be and reconnect with who you really are. Equine Facilitated Therapy, (where horses help people with their well-being and mental health - no riding is involved), locally to Hertford can be part of the therapy offered.
