When you face distressing or unsettling times in your life, talking about thoughts and feelings with an experienced therapist in a calm, safe space, fosters a process of self-reflection. This process enhances awareness of relational, bodily and emotional experience, providing an opportunity for change and greater resilience in the face of life's challenges. It is helpful for soothing and regulating anxiety, resolving relationship difficulties or exploring pervasive feelings of unhappiness
Counselling and psychotherapy for individuals (short, medium or long term)
Interpersonal, Mindfulness, Person Centred, Process Oriented, Psychodynamic, Self Psychology, Somatic Psychotherapy
My approach is integrative, and therefore based on according 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, and offers a very rich environment for facilitating changes in entrenched patterns of relating "out there" in the "real" world.
I undertake regular (mandatory) clinical supervision and ongoing professional development. These are required by my professional association(s).
I have 26 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 doing) , music (singing, solo and choral), arts administration and the advertising industry, before changing direction in mid life to train and study psychotherapy.
