Hello and welcome to my website.

The best way to start, is to explain how I work so you that you can work out if it’s what you’re looking for.

It might feel as if you have lost your way and are struggling to deal with the ups and downs of life. Therapy can help you to reorient yourself again and to discover new ways of dealing with familiar difficulties.  In my practice I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults who want to change their life in some way and are willing to make the commitment to themselves to do so.  I offer a safe confidential space for you to be open and honest about your struggles without judgement so that we can work together to create lasting change.

Compassionate Inquiry

I am currently studying an approach called Compassionate Inquiry.  This is an approach developed by Gabor Maté in response to working with people experiencing trauma.  Trauma is a response to any situation where distress has been experienced which can be something ‘big’ such as sexual abuse or by simply not being attuned to by a parent/carer when you were a child.  In my experience this is a very powerful way of working which helps you to become aware of the root of your trauma very quickly and how to heal this.  By uncovering unconscious dynamics that are running your life and liberating yourself from them using compassion, body awareness, uncovering core beliefs and letting go of the stories that have a hold on you and prevent you from moving forward.

I am currently offering 3 free 50 minute sessions of Compassionate Inquiry as part of my course.  All sessions are online via Zoom in return for agreeing for the sessions to be recorded.  A small part of the recording may be used as part of my training if needed.  Please get in touch if you are interested.
