I am a qualified and registered psychotherapist in private practice offering therapy and counselling to individuals. I offer face to face and online sessions ( via Skype or Zoom)
I am also a Licensed HeartMath Coach specialising in Emotional Health and Stress Resilience.
My psychotherapeutic approach is contemporary, flexible and oriented around what you want to have happen, i.e. your desired outcomes.
Our minds and our bodies are not separate from each other and nor are our thoughts and feelings. We are complex, fascinating systems of interconnecting and inter-related thoughts, feelings, experiences, memories, and more…. that all serve to make each one of truly unique. These aspects of self come together in different ways in different contexts to create our outcomes, i.e to create what happens and how we behave. If we aren't getting what we want, or when we want to resolve issues, solve problems, or develop new ways of being we need access to flexible and responsive therapies and change processes that will help us gain new perspectives and develop new personal resources.
Therapy can help sort out the confusion, identify the areas that need to change and create a system of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that support you to achieve what you want.
Therapeutic Modelling is a methodology that I use to help you reveal the structure of your experience, to create mental, emotional, somatic (and sometimes physical) models of what is happening in a given context so that you can build more effective models, acquire or develop resources, and effect change. This approach is the basis of my therapeutic modality: NeuroLinguistic Psychotherapy (NLPt). I also specialise in using Clean Language and HeartMath, and I'm the founder of The Breathing Space.
I have experience of working with people to heal and resource themselves across a broad range of issues such as
Anxiety/generalised anxiety disorder
panic disorder/panic attacks
negative emotions - shame, sadness, anger
bipolar disorder/manic depression
bereavement and grief
borderline personality disorder
obsessive compulsive disorder
post-traumatic stress disorder (ptsd)
body dysmorphic disorder
obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
chronic fatigue syndrome/me
irritable bowel syndrome
