I began working as a body work professional thirty three years ago. I counselled my first talking therapy clients twenty four years ago. It's in the last four years that I have begun to offer an integration of these areas. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their comprehensive code of ethics. I hold a CPCAB level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I also have a British Wheel of Yoga Teaching Diploma in Yoga, and I am Cerificated by The Minded Institute in integrating Yoga Therapy into Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I offer a free telephone or online thirty minute initial consultation.
I develop a working relationship with my clients which is exploratory and supportive. Working together we employ different approaches depending on your needs. This could include; • person centred – developing a supportive relationship to explore your story and feelings and enable you to build a strong sense of self • psychodynamic – looking at your history and how that is impacting you in the present. • Somatic – physical grounding and breathing techniques. • cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – looking at the causes of your difficulties and then being very solution focussed I provide a safe and confidential space in which emotional difficulties and experiences can be explored. I offer a free 30 minute, no obligation, online or telephone consultation.
As well as my experience as a therapist I have worked professionally in education, environmental regeneration, health, the performing arts, and the service industry. I believe my broad range of experience means I can empathise and relate to people from diverse backgrounds.
