My psychotherapy practice
Therapy provides the opportunity to connect with your inner spirit through a process of reflection and self-exploration. I provide a warm, safe environment to enable this process and have a heart-centred approach to therapy.
You may be feeling invisible, anxious, hopeless, overwhelmed, stressed, frustrated, angry, resentful, guilty, shameful, depressed, despondent... perhaps you feel lost, struggle to find your sense of purpose, search for a sense of identity, find yourself searching for the answers to questions you have not asked before...
Therapy is time and space for you, an opportunity to have an honest conversation without judgement and without shame. This is where you can be yourself, no more hiding, no more pretending. Therapy will enable you to develop a deeper insight on what is happening in your life now, how you got to here and most importantly what needs to change so you can feel alive and reconnect with your innate sense of joy, compassion, purposefulness, truth, contentment and all the other qualities that make-up your unique soul-nature.
It takes insight, strength and courage to look for a therapist when dealing with uncertainty and challenges. This step can be the beginning of the change that is needed... sometimes when it seems like things are falling apart they are actually falling into place.
For me it is an honour and privilege to support people through the process of transformation that therapy can enable. By taking a mind, body and soul approach to therapy I can provide a space where you can connect to your inner-truth and establish how you wish to realise it in the world…

What do I love most about my work?
Facilitating a process by where people discover who they really are and become more than comfortable in their own skin, they become more authentic, confident, honest, have a sense of purpose, feel inspired, radiant and joyful.
What inspired me to become a counsellor & therapist?
I worked for many years in social services and youth services, on social inclusion/community projects with some of the most vulnerable people in our society. I have also worked in school/educational settings and witnessed the great miracle of how helping children and young people to connect to their innate potential and values at early stages of development has lead to a positive 'sense of self' which influences how they engage with those around them and overall their quality of life.
My passion for wanting to enable people to change their lives for the better, to become more self-aware and to empower themselves inspired me to train as a counsellor and psychotherapist. Unimaginable positive changes can be brought about through engaging in a supported reflective process.
Over the years I have seen therapy transform people’s lives. It is truly an honour and privilege to witness, like watching the miracle of caterpillars turning into butterflies.
What is the process?
As a therapist I provide an essential space that enables the process of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and authenticity. This gentle approach is delicately balanced with the challenge that truth and honest reflection allow.
The outcome is often a greater connection to your inner spirit/soul-nature, improved relationships and a greater sense of purpose and connection in the world.
