About me

I work from quiet therapy rooms in Shrewsbury and Church Stretton, offering support for a range of issues such as anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, feeling sad, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, feeling stuck, bereavement and loss, trauma, abuse, stress, addiction and eating disorders.

My role as your therapist is to be present alongside you whatever you are experiencing, and in an atmosphere of warmth and respect to facilitate a process where new choices can emerge and change can become possible.

Sensitive listening and connection with people have been at the heart of my working life as a professional musician for over 20 years, and I bring that sensitivity and attunement to my therapeutic work, together with a broad, inclusive and open outlook.

How I work

My therapeutic approach, psychosynthesis, seeks to support you in unlocking hidden potential which may be contained within a painful issue or symptom. In exploring whatever difficult and troubling aspects of our history and personality are causing us problems, we become aware of behaviour patterns and coping mechanisms that may have served us in the past but are now keeping us stuck; and of long-buried qualities now seeking expression. By consciously choosing to let go of what is holding us back and embrace these emerging qualities, we can develop a stronger and truer sense of self, be more equipped to face what is painful and difficult in life, and better able to connect with what gives our lives meaning, purpose and value.

As a client I have experienced for myself the deep benefits of feeling truly seen, heard and understood, and how transformative and life-enhancing that can be. Being empathically accepted as all of who you are by your therapist can lead you to be more accepting of and compassionate towards yourself and others.

It is the therapeutic relationship that is the most healing and effective element of therapy, so it's important to find a therapist you feel comfortable with and can trust.

If you get in touch

If you contact me I'll suggest we meet for an initial session so we can get a sense of how it feels to work together. You'll be able to ask any questions you may have about the process, and to tell me what brings you to seek help at this point and what you hope for. I'll assess whether the therapy I can provide would be suitable and beneficial for you. We can then discuss whether to take things forward, and book in some further sessions if you decide you would like to.

Sessions last 50 minutes and are usually at the same time each week. The number of sessions we agree on will depend on your unique circumstances and needs, and we review the work regularly to make sure you are getting what you need from it. I offer both short-term focused counselling for specific problems and longer-term psychotherapeutic work for more deeply-rooted issues.

There is more information on my website if you need it, and please feel free to contact me with any enquiries.
