"One of the oldest and most generous tricks that the universe plays on human beings is to bury strange jewels within us all, then stand back to see if we can ever find them." (Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic.)
My aim is to help you find your jewels; to feel better after each therapy session, and give you the tools you need to manage your emotional life better, without investing in long term and costly therapy. I can help you by:
- reducing anxiety
- breaking the cycle of depression
- treating psychological trauma
- managing anger
- stopping addictive behaviour
- relieving medical conditions
- harmonising relationships
- and other issues
I aim to be an effective therapist: to find out what I mean, go to: http://www.hgi.org.uk/register/checklist.htm
I enjoy working with children and young people as well as adults and I use creative, art/craft based approaches as appropriate.
I also run an amazingly effective group therapy programme originally developed for parents, the Just What We Need programme (the only therapeutic programme accredited by CanParent), based on Human Givens therapy. A personal account of my own journey can be found here: https://thepsychologist.bps.org.uk/human-givens-just-what-I-needed
I am a qualified and experienced Video Interaction Guider; I use video clips to help improve relationships between children and adults - this can be done in school or in the home. More can be found at www.videointeractionguidance.net
For therapists and counsellors I can offer essential 1:1 supervision (I am RAPPS registered) to give you a safe space to reflect on your practice with your clients and develop your insight.
