About me

I am an experienced Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor/Psychotherapist offering short-term counselling and open-ended psychotherapy. I practice face-to-face and online.

I offer a safe, calm and welcoming space in a peaceful, rural location.

My working approach incorporates a wide spectrum of psychotherapeutic approaches. I select the most appropriate way of working with a client's personality type and presenting issues and match my way of working with what I believe would work best for you.

I aim to work holistically looking at the whole person from a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual points of view to aid the most healing and progression rather than focusing on symptoms in isolation. I take into account your past, present and future. I also incorporate a Transpersonal approach, which deals with a person's true nature and potential, as well as your soul expression and a deeper relationship with yourself and the world.

The core of our work together is for you to take the time in a safe and comfortable environment to explore your feelings and tell your story. Each client is seen as a whole person with all aspects of personality observed and included: their thinking processes, patterns of behaviour, background and historical events, emotional responses, innate qualities and potential as a whole.

My areas of expertise are:

  • relationships
  • difficult family dynamics
  • bereavement
  • loss of self
  • authentic way of being
  • inner potential
  • miscarriage
  • life purpose and meaning
  • life crisis
  • life transitions and changes
  • identity crisis
  • anger
  • women issues
  • post-natal depression
  • inner child therapy
  • dream work
  • creative work
  • emotional and physical abuse
  • soul work

My main focus is on the person as a whole and finding a path towards an authentic way of living, finding yourself again and redefine new meaning.

I describe the process of counselling and psychotherapy as a journey of unfolding and discovery. The purpose of the journey is to help clients understand their feelings and behaviours better. I encourage a move towards exploration, interpretation, intervention and response to patterns in a more positive, useful and productive way, which facilitate our growth rather than keep us in a cycle.

Unconditional acceptance and open-hearted compassion to the whole being is at the centre of my practice, as well as, therapeutic relationship and a safe place to explore what troubles you. I help clients to get back to themselves,  'to come home' to what they were always meant to be and to tap into their own potential to create a life they want. I am warm, grounding and intuitive in my approach to therapeutic relationships and primarily curious about who you truly are, how you got here and where you can potentially go once healing has occured.

As a Transpersonal psychotherapist, I believe in human potential and aim to empower clients to engage in the process of healing and taking steps towards living a better life. I aim to facilitate the process of unfolding within a person on a deeper, more profound level and get them back in touch with their unique beautiful qualities that might have gotten out of balance. I work holistically and creatively looking at the whole situation from a cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual points of view to aid the most healing and progression. This way of working sees everything as a whole, e.g. s s symptoms in the body as symbols of things wanting to be known and healed. Distorted thoughts and negative scripts wanting to be re-written to their original story, before we were touched upon by external factors.

With intuitive and guiding support of being fully present with what is manifesting in the therapy room, a relationship between a client and a therapist, seeks to make unconscious conscious and look at material presented in a way of 'what is out of balance, what is unfolding, what needs attention and what is the meaning of this experience?' My approach incorporates working with intuition, creative imagination, the body and exploration of dreams. I am relational, intuitive, calm and grounded in my way of working and aim to provide the optimum environment to facilitate the process of your unfolding.

I also offer:

  • Skype sessions
  • Email Counselling
  • Therapy outdoors/Nature therapy

I look forward to connecting with you.
