Therapy

'Do you make regular visits to yourself?'
Rumi


People come to therapy for many different reasons and at different times in their lives.
Often an event or circumstance in the external world has led to difficult feelings and thoughts .. or there can be a more general questioning and searching for understanding and direction.

Whatever the initial reason therapy offers a safe, non-judgemental space to begin to explore and understand more where you are now.

A place to become curious about how the past may have effected your present self ... becoming more aware and in this offering the opportunity to live a more conscious and empowered life in the future.


My Approach

'The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases'

Carl Jung


I have an in depth integrative training meaning I'm skilled and experienced in different psychological theory and modalities. Drawing on this I aim to meet and understand you as an individual and work collaboratively in ways which fit your personal needs and experiences.

The therapeutic space I offer is primarily empathic and holding .. though at times challenging.

I encourage you to really begin to engage with your inner world and understand how you see the external world, relate to others and your self.

We begin to wonder about ...

  • What strategies you've developed to cope and deal with certain difficult life experiences and emotions
  • How you see and treat your self
  • The relationships in your life

    In this space we begin to explore if certain ways of coping built up in the past are necessary now .. or if there is a different way to be in the world and with your self and others.

    I aim to create a holding environment where we work together to increase awareness and self acceptance with respect, care and compassion.

    'Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light'

    Brene Brown, Author


  • The psychological approaches I am mainly influenced by and incorporate are from the relational school, attachment and neuroscience, psychodynamic, energy psychology, mindfulness and radical acceptance with a bodily awareness.
