Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have worked for many years with the experience of loss, grief and with bereavement issues generally. I am especially interested in bringing the transpersonal and spiritual dimensions into the exploration of grief and bereavement.
I also work with early difficulties, and the different developmental phases and the issues which these may raise for later attachment problems and relationship in adult life. I have an interest in borderline psychologies and in the transpersonal/spiritual perspective that these may raise.
Sliding scale for individual sessions from £50-65.
Individual supervision flat rate depending on training and experience, please call me for more information.
I have a special interest in health and illness. I work with the physical symptoms of chronic illness and disability from a general and a body psychotherapeutic perspective which includes the transpersonal/spiritual dimensions.
I have a great enthusiasm for working with dreams and creative imagination, and with drawing and artwork.
I work with mindfulness and meditation from a Buddhist perspective.
I am a UKCP registered supervisor.
