I offer you understanding and empathy and aim to work collaboratively. My first premise is that we are all born with a perfect sense of who we are. Therapy is guided by you, the client, through discussing the issues you present and together we identify the goals we will work on together, reviewing and adjusting as time progresses. My journey into therapeutic work began as a therapeutic foster carer and progressed into school based work helping both students aged 5-15 years and the parents. Through this work I developed a keener understanding of how our childhood experiences form our adult patterns of relating and how we pass those patterns on to our children, often without awareness of the implications for their future lives. I am a professionally accredited Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I blend recognised psychotherapeutic approaches with holistic and spiritual practices. I use Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping) and Emotion Code techniques to uncover and release trapped emotions which encroach on the individual’s ability to live life to the full or succeed in their work and or relationships. We often discover that the challenges we face might have begun long before we were born and my interest in Ancestral Lineage Healing has become a transformational part of the work I offer my clients. My work is both trauma informed and attachment theory informed.
I work with adults individually online across the UK and internationally I also offer inperson workshops and retreats. Although the work can be either short term or long term the approach requires a certain degree of commitment from both therapist and client. I enjoy working with clients who are committed to helping themselves to better understand their circumstances and are open to making changes to improve their lives.
