My training has been integrative with a transpersonal and esoteric (innermost) perspective.
My main expertise and experience is working with women who have been abused in childhood, one to one and facilitating groups.
As a qualified Transpersonal Psychotherapist and Counsellor with 20 years experience I see my role as helping clients uncover for themselves their true way of being, connecting to their essence, discovering an inner source of wisdom and their true purpose in life.
We learn ways and coping strategies to deal with early pain and hurt, this can set up inner conflict, blocked feelings and low self esteem leading to depression and illness.
Working in an ethical and responsible way, learning from my clients, I continue to further my own professional development.
I receive monthly Supervision.
I offer telephone counselling where appropriate.
