About me

I offer a safe and confidential space in which to explore whatever you are finding difficult or challenging in your life as well as what supports and inspires you.

We all need support whether we are dealing with a personal crisis, traumatic experiences, relationship issues, grief, addictions, the everyday challenges of life or for deepening self inquiry. I offer both short and longer term support.

I have over 20 years experience of working therapeutically with people including counselling, body work, movement and somatic therapy, meditation and the creative arts. I work with individuals, couples and groups and also run retreats.

My Approach to Counselling - Some of the key aspects to the way I work are:

  • Respect - building a relationship with my clients based on respect and confidentiality.
  • Mindfulness - bringing attention back to the present moment which gives you the support and reassurance of what is current and real.
  • Body Awareness - cultivating awareness of the body which helps you to connect more deeply with your feelings, environment and relationships.
  • Working with sensitivity and care with any trauma held in the body to allow safe and natural release.
  • Inquiry - exploring in an open- ended way rather than looking for fixed results.
  • Integration - re-integrating aspects that may have been abandonned in early life as they seemed to be unlovable, unacceptable or just too painful to feel.
  • Resourcing - re-connecting with the resources you have to meet life with all its joys and challenges.
  • Kindness - welcoming yourself exactly as you are.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
