I am an Experienced Relational Psychotherapist offering online Mindfulness- based Psychotherapy.
As a Integrative Psychotherapist I combine understanding and techniques from different therapeutic schools of thought depending on the unique needs of the client. I work with client's for many issues such as anxiety, stress, relationship issues and divorce, bereavement, trauma, low self-esteem, family issues and childlessness.
I have specialist training in Mindfulness which integrates Buddhist psychology and Western psychotherapy. I have also been trained in working with the body, with developmental and attachment issues, relationship difficulties, and trauma.
Mindfulness Psychotherapy helps clients to meet themselves and their current and past issues gently, and with greater understanding and compassion. This method allows clients to meet difficult feelings, painful emotions and traumatic experiences in a more contained way, and practicing dual awareness enables clients to avoid merging with or re-living the painful experiences.
I also support clients in working with embodied sensations, bringing presence to the body's subtle reactions and feeling tones, in the moment. This exploration of self is done in relationship and I provide a confidential and non-judgemental holding environment for the client to be deeply heard and seen.
This relational psychotherapy can also help to ease self-critical thoughts, feelings and judgements. As we learn to meet ourselves with gentleness and compassion change can occur, allowing a greater sense of connection in ourselves, our relationships and our experinces of being human.
I see clients Online, on a weekly basis for one hour sessions.
I work Online, via zoom. I currently live in North Germany as well as having a home in the UK, in the West Country.
I am deeply committed to working with change, and I am wholeheartedly engaged with ongoing learning and development in my practice, and in the path towards embodiment and well being.
My initial training was in Osteopathy and I practiced for over 20 years, predominantly as a Biodynamic Cranial Osteopath with a special interest in working with pregnancy and postpartum issues, and with the relationship of mothers and babies.
Please email me if you would like to make an online appointment. I offer a free initial online meeting and answer all calls and emails personally.
