The focus for my work is on the 'whole' person, my belief is that each individual has their own innate wisdom. I am an experienced Registered and Accredited Counsellor / Psychotherapist that works closely and respectfully alongside clients.
I came into counselling when working in schools, I recognised that the expressive behaviour shown by some children distracted adults away from recognising the real vulnerability of the child. I learned to listen to the child behind the behaviour and to help the child truly hear him/herself. I feel this is the same for us all, our behaviours, which ever way they are expressed, distract and distort who we really are, we become consumed by our behaviour and forget to hear who we are and what we really need to live in a healthy way. I listen deeply and respectfully to the real person behind the behaviour and help the client hear and see what I do.
My experience and interest is particularly with: Relationships professionally and personally, depression, anxiety, phobia, couples counselling, addiction (substances or objects of people), seasonal affective disorder (SAD) anger management, bereavement, self esteem; I have a special interest in spirituality, spiritual guidance, issues around death, Highly sensitive people, life coaching.
