About me

We carry our answers: we are experts of ourselves.

I can offer you time and space at my private peaceful venue to explore and untangle your worries through a creative psychotherapeutic process: person centred, dance movement, art and psychodynamic process. Our first meeting is free.

About me
My practice is Integrative which means using more than one psychotherapeutic approach: I offer a space for clients to explore in movement, dance, art and play as well as speaking techniques which support people to process and release any blocked feelings.

Quite often we can struggle to find words to express what we really feel, sometimes a gesture or a sound can come a lot more easily, after all babies and toddlers do this all the time. In today’s society we are much more accustomed to expressing in words, but we are moving and sounding beings, so it makes sense to use these senses also when it comes to understanding and healing ourselves.

My aim is to help you untangle your worries and realise your potential, in addition work towards improving your self-awareness and understanding.
I offer creative ways for you to explore and express yourself. These can include; talking and storytelling, art making, dance, and movement, play, being outdoors in the woods or on the beach, the choice is yours.

I am influenced by the natural world and fascinated by our deep and complex connections. I value self-awareness recognising the important role it plays in our lives and the need to nurture it. I believe at the heart of a good life is community and healthy living.

We carry our answers: we are experts of ourselves.

What to expect when we meet
I offer a safe confidential place. I will support you to feel comfortable. I will listen to you and have no expectations. We will work together at your pace. You are welcome to talk, draw and move. I am versatile in my practice to try and meet your individual needs.

It is normal when ‘in therapy’ to meet once a week for one hour, however this is not mandatory, we can meet more or less often, the choice is yours.

We can meet for one to one therapy for one hour, or you can attend group therapy. Please enquire to learn about existing groups.
