I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I work with adults and adolescents from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide range of issues.
The focus of my client work centres on working emphatically and compassionately with the relationship we have with ourselves. I believe healing this relationship is key to resolving all that we struggle with from depression to anxiety to addictions to conflict with others.
My approach primarily focuses on the conversation between client and therapist. I work in a unique way with each client attuning to each clients individual needs to maximise the effectiveness of the therapy I can offer. Where there is client interest, I will incorporate a variety of tools from art therapy to breathing techniques. The aim is to equip clients with skills they can use outside the therapy room in their daily lives.
An important part of my work is addressing the physical manifestations of our emotions. I believe our body and our minds are inextricably linked and that our history remains ‘written’ on our bodies. Working with the body provides in-depth information about our experience and offers ways of working through difficulties without having to relive or analyse them. When working with the body you do not need to remember or understand what has happened.
I have a special interest in working with trauma and I have specific training in working with adolescents.
