Are you seeking more aliveness or freedom in your life and want to feel better connected with yourself and others? You may be distressed, angry, have lost your confidence or feel out of place and isolated. You may want to have more awareness of thought patterns or responses that hold you back. I have extensive professional experience and use approaches that will help you make new choices. I bring compassion, creativity and humour to our work and offer a warm and respectful relationship. Counselling will give you time and space to get in touch with what you need to move forwards.
With a specialist interest in bereavement I have worked with hundreds of individuals to find effective ways to cope with loss. Additionally, I am trained in Shamanic Journeywork, Mindfulness and Self-Compassion and Gendlin’s ‘Focusing’ where attention is given to the body and somatic field as part of the therapeutic process. I am also qualified to work online via video link and by telephone.
Making contact for the first time can feel like a big step. If you would like to start by having an informal conversation by telephone or email just get in touch. Alternatively please contact me to arrange an initial appointment and I will send you a link to zoom.
