I practice depth psychology, working with dreams and emotional, physical and spiritual symptoms, including personal, social, cultural and spiritual and ecological symptoms, our shared disconnection from nature.
I consider the whole person, their life and background. We explore unconscious aspects through dreams, symptoms and the meaning of life events. Breakdowns, psychological problems and crises can be the way life organises profound change. The path is rarely a direct track, especially if you want to make lasting changes, it’s a soul journey. Your needs and aspirations can be explored before deciding to embark on therapy
I work with dreams, body awareness, and art to support the transformational process. I work with a respect for the uniqueness of each individual. The pace and method of your counselling or psychotherapy will reflect that.
