You are here, and that means that you are already stepping into a fertile environment for clarity, psychological healing and change.
Engaging in any kind of therapy or change work is an opportunity for you to be critically reflective within an atmosphere of warmth, compassion and understanding - a trusting safe space where the focus is on you, your dilemma, your distress, whatever you have sought to explore.
Don't forget to click on the website link above for more detailed information too.
I provide a confidential space for you to:
- explore the issues and difficulties that life, relationships, and some patterns of behaviour create.
- gain greater understanding, clarity and increased self-awareness.
- create an opportunity to make changes in your life with confidence and support.
Counselling & Psychotherapy:
Clients across the generations, from a struggling student to a stressed-out executive have sought to work with their own change process and explore the nature of who they are and how they wish life to be. My work is open to anyone over the age of 18years who is struggling with life at the moment. I can also work with clients via their employer insurance companies: Vitality, Aviva, and AXA. I also work with groups and couples.
Here are just some of the issues you may wish to bring:
- relationship difficulties (inc romantic, friendship, family,
- work-related, present & historical)
- anxiety, panic & stress
- divorce and separation
- decision making & life choices
- gender and sexuality
- self-esteem and confidence issues
- abuse - present & historical
- health anxieties & illness
Couples therapy can provide invaluable insight into the workings of your relationship, whether familial, friendship, romantic, marriage. How we relate to one another has a profound impact on our wellbeing and function in the world and choosing the option to look at it more deeply is a courageous step. Couples counselling is offered to any couple wishing to take a deep look at their relationship and its workings. Whilst the past necessarily influences the present, my approach with couples is to work in the here and now and explore the intricate dynamic between you such as:
- What habits of relating do you have individually and together?
- What patterns have you fallen into? What matters to you most?
- How do you hear one another? Where are you not hearing?
- What do you want from each other?
- What are you experiencing in your body as you relate to each other?
I look forward to exploring with you whatever seems difficult in your relationship right now.
Hypnotherapy & Creative Meditation:
I also offer Hypnotherapy as a way to engage in specific stress-related issues and the experience of anxiety. This is an evidence-based approach that has been approved by the British Psychological Society (BPS). There is nothing gimmicky or flimsy about the approach and it has nothing to do with popular 'stage-hypnosis' that you may have seen on the television.
This is short-term therapy and you may find that you only need 4-6 sessions to experience real improvement in whatever specific issue is holding you back. You are free to re-engage in hypnotherapy for a different issue at any time and may find that experiencing relief in one issue may have a knock-on effect with other issues too.
Employee Assisted Programs:
I also work with insurance companies Aviva, Vitality, AXA, and Health Assured if you are registered as part of your employment.
