What I offer
I seek to create a safe, empathetic and accepting environment which provides a heartfelt and accompanied exploration of whatever issues you bring. A confidential place where you feel heard. A refuge.
I am interested in how you experience yourself. I will seek to create a relationship of trust with you and compassionately support you in your exploration of yourself. A place you can find and be yourself.
An important element of this is exploring what gets in your way, and what works for you. They are unique to each of us and can be emotional, physical, psychological, spiritual or energetic.
Overall my intention is to bring attention to your inherent well-being and help integrate this feeling and awareness into your everyday life. This will support you to move towards a greater sense of health,belonging and wholeness.
What to expect
During the sessions we will work safely with feelings, thoughts and felt senses so that you can experience and know yourself more fully, compassionately and with greater clarity around both past and present events.
With increased awareness of ourselves and the many layers of our lives we can start to notice and transform our habits and unresolved issues. At times this may be painful but it also gives an opportunity for you to experience greater trust, choice and a sense of all-rightness.
In Torquay I work with other therapists located in a centrally located Medical Practice.(www.torbaytalkingtherapies.co.uk). In Buckland-in-the-Moor,10 minutes by car from Ashburton on the A38, I work from a beautifully located and tranquil private room overlooking south Dartmoor. (www.tanmayo-therapist.com)
Free introductory session
Finding the right therapist is often daunting, particularly if you feel vulnerable. If what you have read here appeals to you, please phone me to arrange an introductory session.
In this initial free session, you can get a sense of how you would feel working with me as we discuss what you are seeking to get from therapy and how I might support you in this as well as sorting out practical issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy. It is a relational talking therapy which draws from western psychological and neuro-scientific theory combined with mindfulness.
I have been working as a psychotherapist in Plymouth since 2012 with a wide range of clients and issues. For example, clients have come because they wanted more from life; felt inadequate or misunderstood; that they couldn’t cope, didn’t belong, were experiencing overwhelm, anxiety, depression or relationship issues; or were suffering from panic attacks, shock, trauma, loss, or ill health.
I regularly undertake additional training which, over the last 2 years, has included domestic abuse, sand tray, child protection, suicide, trauma and the impact of boarding schools.
Other influences reflect my own experiences of therapy, meditation, relationships, groups, fatherhood and, prior to my training as a therapist, a fulfilling and successful 30-year professional career in London.
I am registered with the two main professional bodies - BACP and UKCP. I am working towards full accreditation with both and abide by their ethical guidelines and those of the Karuna Institute.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Domestic violence
- Emotional abuse
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Panic disorder
I charge £35 per hour session to adults, for both short and long term work, with some reduced rate spaces to be negotiated.
