With fifteen years of counselling experience, my special interest is supporting people to move through and beyond life's many losses.
I’ve had many chronic health challenges and two of my five children were born partially sighted.
Married for over 30 years, my husband died quite suddenly of cancer in 2015. This enormous shock prompted me to explore how I could best support myself to survive the deep grief I was experiencing. Like many of us, life’s losses have at times, seemed to just keep coming.
Life Beyond Loss, is a culmination of my training and life experience - both the joyous and the sad times.
My qualifications includes a post graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling and Therapy, and I have trained (parts 1 & 2) with With Living Well Dying Well, as a Doula
for the Dying.
As a psychosynthesis counsellor I believe it is important to offer a choice in ways of working with clients, as well as traditional sharing and talking these might include: Art Materials, Image Work and Body Work. I act as a guide to support the client identify and find a way through obstacles and barriers that might get in the way of them leading a self empowered and fulfilling life whatever their age or state of health.
I work with individuals, on a long or short-term basis, helping them to face and work through life’s various challenges whether personal, family, relationship or work issues. I encourage clients to explore and access their hidden potential. Equipped with new insights and resources they are more able to find a way forward that is rewarding and satisfying.
What does ‘Living Well’ mean for you? What holds you back from living the life you would like to lead and how might you be able to live your life more fully?
I was married for 30 years and have a private practice in Lewes, East Sussex.
