You may be suffering with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, discontentment, patterns in our lives that hold us back; relationship difficulties, separation and divorce, family issues, children leaving home, death of parents, abuse, bereavement, trauma (ancestral, historical or recent), self-esteem (confidence and love for yourself), feeling sad, loss of identity, not knowing who you are, feeling lost for example. These are all normal issues that face us all and are often not talked about and included as part of life.
Counselling is about creating a safe environment to explore your needs. I work in a confidential, non-judgemental manner.
We are all different and there are many approaches to work with problems in our lives; together we can find your way. I work one to one through talking, we can also work with art, clay, sand and we can work with symbol and dreams. Often our bodies will hold our symptoms and through movement and awareness we can deepen our relationship to ourselves. This strengthens us. These are all choices for us to make in looking at what you are feeling challenged with.
There are many approaches to therapy and my training is based in a psychospiritual approach, this means that there is inclusion of the soul and our journey through life. It is about bringing meaning and making sense of our lives as well as including what symptoms we may be suffering. In a safe and contained space we can look at what is bringing you to Counselling.
I work with individual adults of all ages.
My background was in corporate communications. I worked in the City and transatlantically for over 15 years in the Communications industry. I left this environment to focus on what matters to me - healing and living our lives to our full potential - to be happy!
