Core Process Counselling, Psychotherapy and Supervision.
I offer a mindfulness based approach using compassion and awareness to help you explore whatever difficulties you may be experiencing and to re-connect with the natural health and vitality which I believe is always available even in the midst of great suffering.
I have worked as a psychotherapist for over 12 years having come from a background in community nursing and have been Supervising counsellors,therapists and other modalities for 2 years.
Depending on the nature of what you bring our work can be short term and issue focused or deeper longer term work exploring underlying patterns and self identities which may be impacting on your current life and relationships.
Sessions are weekly, an hour long, with the intention of exploring how you experience yourself in the present moment, this maybe through thoughts, beliefs, feelings, energy processes, dreams and the imaginal. Integration and healing comes from insights into the way we identify with and hold on to suffering.
Attention is paid to developing resources to support the work and to existing health and well being.
