My aim: So you feel understood and supported, a place, to express your feelings in a safe and appropriate way. I don’t offer a promise of total happiness, but I do offer the opportunity to explore and accept your past experiences and move forward positively with your life. Together we go on a journey, we are equals in the process. A place where change can happen. Together we can explore the terrain.
I work in a conventional therapy setting (room) and also offer Eco therapy which is like conventional therapy but it takes place in nature. I work in Poole, Gaunts House (Wimborne), Dorchester and a private wood near Sherborne.
Deciding to have counselling can be a very powerful and life-affirming choice. Sometimes it can feel not that easy or comfortable. You may find it confusing all these new emotions, want to give up. Be reassured that this is a normal part of the counselling process and it will get easier.
I have a philosophy in life that everyone has a right to be able to get in touch with themselves and sometimes these times coincide with not being financially abundant, I offer a sliding scale with price. Through amazing people, challenging people and the natural world, I believe with all my heart this has lead me to create “the life you love.” Which sole aim is to inspire, support and bring forth others into a life they will love too.
What is Eco Therapy?: Ecotherapy is typically conducted outdoors, so is sometimes called 'walk and talk' or simply 'outdoor therapy'. In some ways outdoor counselling sessions are the same as those conducted indoors, except that we meet for each 1 hr session in a natural space, which can be a private wood, Gaunts House, local park or the beach. Counselling and psychotherapy outdoors is grounded on the same foundations as conventional therapy, but has the added input of nature as a kind of co-therapist.
Gong Therapy: The Gong can be profoundly emotional, and in the last few decades the use of music and musical instruments as a form of psychotherapy has become increasingly popular. I use psychotherapeutic techniques along with the Gong to treat a broad range of conditions, including psychological, cognitive, and emotional issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I started off my career in Los Angeles with Entertainment Lawyers whilst living in Hollywood. I then moved back to the UK and was head of PR at an award winning outdoor sports brand. Each day never the same… black days…blue days… joyous and sad. I became aware this was my life to live and in that realisation my life changed. I changed tack to follow my new vocation in life, became a Holistic Therapist, a Sound Therapist (using the Gong) and a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, which has ignited a passion which grows ever more focused with each person I meet and exchange time with.
My professional experience includes working with people with common life problems, varies types of mental illness, addictions, anxiety, depression, sexual/physical abuse; adult children of alcoholics, university students, menopause, family issues, transgender, adults and adolescents. I am also a counsellor at Dorset Rape Crisis.
