I provide a space of complete privacy to talk about difficulties and concerns such as; depression, anxiety, low self esteem, panic attacks, stress, relationship problems etc. My specialism is in eating disorders, body troubles and the body-mind. (Engaging in how your mind and body work together can identify barriers that might interfere with on going health and well being).
You may look to embark on psychotherapy/counselling in order to seek help with a particular problem or symptom, or wish to explore your life more comprehensively in the hope of achieving greater peace of mind, enhance creativity and joy, or to improve relationships both at home and at work.
Within the therapy process we look at familiar patterns of behaviour alongside present and past experiences to identify, understand and make meaning of what lies at the root of the problem you bring. Ultimately this enables news ways for personal and interpersonal change, greater stability and a calmer state of mind.
In an initial consultation we will discuss your needs and wishes to offer the best approach for you and your situation.
If you'd like to ask any questions about counselling please send me your contact details and I'll arrange to call you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Formerly involved in teaching and working with physical health I recognised conflicting attitudes, fears and repressed feelings directly influence the body and how we function. I take an integrative relational approach and draw primarily from my Transactional Analysis qualification combined with other therapeutic methods, such as; CBT, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic, object relations, mindfulness, yoga and mediation acquired throughout my 18 years of practice.
My experience includes working with adults, children, young people and parents in private and voluntary settings. I am a fully accredited UKCP Adult Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and hold a full disclosure certificate to work with children and young people
