I can guide you during challenging times by helping you navigate your life, just as a light-house does during a storm, bringing a fresh awareness that can transform into self-awareness that nourishes the soul.
I offer a confidential, gentle and safe space to look at questions about your life and explore what is on your mind. In exploring with me you will begin to open up to the much bigger picture of the journey that you are on, and reconnect with the deeper needs of your souls journey.
I work with the journey of the soul, the ‘inner work’ of our lives, offering support and tools to facilitate deeper awareness of why this is happening and for what purpose in your life. I offer support to help you find a deeper connection with yourself, which ultimately leads to more peace.
I believe that we all crave meaning, purpose and a feeling of wholeness or completeness to our lives, specific to each and every one of us. This link to ourselves can get ‘clogged up’ and sometimes we need someone to guide us back to our own sense of our souls journey and self.
I support to parents who are struggling with their children, or teenager. It is work that enables parents to communicate with their children by empowering them to be the loving parents they have always wanted to be. I do not work directly with children under 18 years old but with the parent, empowering them to connect with their child.
I support clients struggling in partnerships, who are finding themselves stuck, unfulfilled, struggling with their truth in the relationship. Also those in the process or about to separate or divorce, and the processing of blooming post divorce. (Please see my website for more details.)
I am a psychosynthesis thesis counsellor. As the name suggests, the aim of this model of psychology is to enable a person to move closer to a healthy ‘synthesis’ or balanced integration of all aspects of their being: body, feelings and mind and parts of themselves that have been rejected or abandoned. It is a remembering of how to live authentically from ones truth.
I look forward to meeting with you,
Training, qualifications & experience
My work is nourished by my endless curiosity about the world of relationships, my love of nature and the arts, my relationships with my children, family and friends.
My core post-graduate training as a psychosynthesis counsellor was at The Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. I have attended various courses and workshops including; several Bert Hellinger Family Constellation workshops also known as Systemic Family Constellations, which are designed to help reveal the hidden unspoken laws operating within the family and ancestral line; Nick Duffel’s Boarding School Survivor course, the study of the impact and dynamics of being sent away from home to boarding school as a child on the adult’s inner life.
I am fully insured to work with clients and am a registered counsellor with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My standard fee is £50 per hour session.
Our first session working together is £50 to be paid before the session.
I work to a minimum of 6 weekly sessions, with the fee for these 6 sessions of £300 to be paid ahead of time.
I offer an initial phone conversation, or a series of emails between us, to answer your initial questions. In this conversation we both choose if we are suited to work together. That truly means both of us have to feel suited to working together, myself and yourself. It is a time to explore, not commit yet.
The structure of working with me:
We will meet for an hour weekly. We meet at the same place, at the same time, on the same day of the week, as far as possible, with a review after 6 weeks. This clear structure is primarily there to support you in the journey we will take together, and provides a steadiness.
During the weekly hour-long sessions, we work together on whatever issues you choose to explore or sit with the not knowing.
