About me

A warm welcome to you.

My private practice is situated in the heart of Lancaster 5 minutes from the train station. A comfortable, peaceful and restful environment. I am also able to support you wherever you are, whatever location in the UK or in the World via Zoom.

I offer an invitation to a different kind of space online.

A space to quieten and slow down and to feel more connected.

Gentle breathing, mindfulness, and a quality of stillness help to support this healing process.

My approach to psychotherapy is that I work with you in a way that is respectful, non-judgmental, sensitive and warm. I am a Body-Oriented & intergenerational trauma informed therapist (individual, family & Collective). I am committed to personal development/training. I believe that you have an inner sense of truth and wisdom within but need the space, stillness and unconditional presence to gain your own insights, autonomy and meaning.

Chronic feelings of anxiety and depression, overwhelming loneliness, grief and loss, persistent feelings of low self worth, stuck relationships, emotional suffering, stress and trauma are explored gently and offer potential portals for becoming more in contact with our essential and true self bringing more embodied experiencing, peace and fulfilment to our lives.

I work with both individuals of all ages and also young people who can often feel very alone with outward pressures and who need support to gain more inner awareness and self belief to move forward.

We all wish to grow as human beings moving towards our potential and opening more deeply to the here and now of our experience, the intimacy of life. We are often lost in limiting thoughts-thoughts that are imprisoning and reactive and which induce negative feelings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work in accordance within their ethical guidelines and principles. See www.bacp.co.uk for more information.

I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor and have obtained a Masters of Arts in Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Counselling-Cumbria University.

Post graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Counselling-Cumbria University.

A 5-day residential retreat in Practising Mindfulness for Professionals at Trigonos, North Wales. Bangor University.

I have a lot of experience in working with a wide-range of mental health issues as a Therapist & Counsellor for South Lakeland Mind for many years.

I am trained as a Outdoor Therapist with South Lakeland Mind and have achieved their standard of Advanced Post Qualification Certificate in Outdoor Counselling.

Certificate in Focusing Oriented Therapy Level 1, 2 & 3.

Training and attending an intense programme with Thomas Huebl,  please see his book - "Healing Collective Trauma: A Process for Integrating Our Intergenerational and Cultural Wounds". The Timeless Wisdom Training (2021) is a community of committed practitioners coming together over a two-year period to support one another, to work on personal, group, and ancestral trauma, and to learn conscious growth tools, practices, and methods to integrate this trauma personally and with clients. I am now a part of Thomas Huebl's assistant team in training in the trauma field (2022) as well as his Core group (400 members) and this May (2022) I am starting a training as a facilitator in the field of collective trauma.

I also work as a Counsellor for Cancercare Lancaster Slynesdale working with some very courageous people who are coming to terms with diagnosis, loss and bereavement and dealing with life issues & changes in relationships. This can help to cultivate a new perspective, have greater self understanding and help clients to feel supported to move forward.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
