When you face distressing or unsettling times in your life, talking about thoughts and expressing feelings with an experienced therapist in a safe space, can be relieving and calming. Psychotherapy can build more awareness of relational, bodily and emotional experience, and provide an opportunity to build greater resilience in the face of life's challenges. It can help to regulate anxiety, bring clarity to relationship difficulties or pervasive feelings of unhappiness.
Counselling and psychotherapy for individuals (short, medium or long term)
Attachment Theory, Interpersonal, Mindfulness, Person Centred, Process Oriented, Psychodynamic, Self Psychology, Somatic Psychotherapy
My approach is integrative, and therefore based on each client's particular needs. I draw on psychodynamic psychotherapy, mindfulness, attachment theory and neurobiology, as well as exploring patterns of somatic (bodily) responses which spring from our early relational experiences. The relationship that develops between therapist and client is of paramount importance and will contain echos of those early experiences, offering a very rich environment for facilitating changes in entrenched patterns of personal and professional relating.
I undertake regular (mandatory) clinical supervision and ongoing professional development. These are required by my professional association(s).
I have 27 years of clinical experience as a somatically-trained counsellor and psychotherapist, along with plenty of personal and professional life experiences that help me relate to my clients' own life experiences. My previous working life centred around film, dance (teaching and performing), music (singing, solo and choral), arts administration and the advertising industry, before changing direction in mid life to train and study psychotherapy.
