About me

   When relationships run into difficulties, usually, emotions run high and it can seem impossible for any satisfying resolution. At our practice we offer a safe and confidential setting to enable clients to discover a way to deal with their issues. Life presents many other challenges that can seem overpowering and difficult to deal with on ones own. My partner Carole and I find that the range of 'Integrative Therapies' we employ, our 'tool kit' as it were, enable clients to work through those challenges, to discover for themselves a 'healing' or 'resolution' to the presenting issue. We also run experiential workshops in Mindfullness Practice, Meditation, Creative work through the written narative, art and music, Sandplay and symbol work, Holotropic Breathwork, Dreams, all these modalities encourage and assist in the movement towards self understanding and wholeness. Our counselling training took place in Australia when we lived there, and this was further enhanced with further work in Holotropic Breathwork and Expressive Therapies. Later we were invited onto the staff of ETIA where we assisted in the Counsellor Training program both within Australia and Singapore. Working with adults and children (with referrals from organisations such as the Department of Families  and Youth Support in Queensland), was really rewarding. When people, young and old, meet emotionally challenging situations it is often painful and difficult to move on and deal with the impact of those events. Now we have moved back to the UK we are able to offfer our services to those in need.
