Feeling down, anxious or overwhelmed?
I offer a safe, supportive space, and a listening ear, to help you work things out and connect with your own strength, resilience and wisdom.
I also offer powerful tools to help you deal positively with anxiety, stress and trauma.
My approach is flexible and eclectic. Depending on your needs and wishes sessions could include, talk, art and creativity, movement, embodiment, mindfulness, and breath and voice-work. I also offer sessions walking in the open air if you would rather not be stuck inside.
ONLINE SESSIONS available.

Lack of confidence
Walking and outdoor therapy. The rhythm of walking can help us to relax and organise our thoughts, and for some people may feel more natural and comfortable than traditional chair-based talk-therapy. I offer sessions walking or just being in nature for those who find this helpful.
It's important to make sure that whoever you chose to work with is a good fit for you. To help with this I offer a free, no obligation introductory session so that you can meet me and get a sense of whether you think we could work productively together.
