I offer short term focused and longer term in depth counselling and psychotherapy for a wide range of issues. These include generalised anxiety, depression, difficulties with relationship, stress, bereavement, childhood trauma and abuse, addiction, lack of self-esteem and confidence, and loss of direction and meaning in life.
My approach, psychosynthesis, offers a broad perspective within which to explore whatever it is that you might be struggling with, the unique history and set of circumstances which you bring, and the potential which might be hidden from view, a not yet known future. It is a depth psychology which integrates psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and CBT theories within a psycho-spiritual context. At its heart lies a trust in the inherent capacity for wholeness and healing and the intrinsic health and integrity of the core Self.
I am committed to working within a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental environment which facilitates a respectful and creative therapeutic relationship supporting growth and change.
Training, qualifications & experience
I gained both my Diploma and MA in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London (accredited through Middlesex University). With over 30 years of working in nursing, midwifery and, more recently, counselling/psychotherapy I have worked with people of all ages, abilities, orientations and beliefs in the public, private and voluntary sectors in the UK and abroad.
In addition to my one-to-one work I facilitate a weekly Mindfulness and Meditation Group. I also offer workshops and courses aimed at developing the practice of mindfulness and building confidence and practical resourcefulness in relation to aspects of health, illness and spiritual-development and am a faculty member on the Anthroposophic Health Care, Education and Training Programme. I am registered/accredited with the UKCP and APP and work according to their ethical principals and professional code of conduct.
