Counselling and Psychotherapy
"This being human is a guest house.
Every morning is a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor...
Welcome and entertain them all.
Treat each guest honourably.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”
Covid-19 - During this exceptional time, I am offering on-line sessions, which can become face to face sessions, with agreement, once restrictions are lifted. If you are on the frontline of COVID-19 services (such as NHS or social care) I am offering a reduced rate. Please do get in touch.
I work face-to-face with individual adult clients. My intention is to offer a confidential, safe place for you to explore your concerns, troubles, hopes and fears in a respectful, non-judgemental environment.
Along with space to talk, express and listen, many of my clients find breathing and mindfulness practices, visualisation, dream work, imagery, art and other forms of creative expression very helpful. For some clients, working with the body and sound is a powerful and releasing way to make discoveries about themselves.
I draw from a range of therapeutic schools, traditions and practices. This means the way we work is unique to you, supporting you to make the changes you want to make, increase your self-awareness, and/or to meet the goals you have set yourself.
There is no fixed agenda or technique. Everyone is different - I am guided by your needs. We always agree together how we work. You set the pace - it is your time, your space.
I am a qualified transpersonal integrative psychotherapist. I am UKCP accredited and a member of BACP. I adhere to their codes of ethics and professional standards and have professional indemnity insurance.
