THE WAY I WORK

There are moments in life where we feel we need some extra support. I am here to support you. My aim is to create a safe space where you can open up to explore yourself on a deeper level, where you can work on any emotional, spiritual, psychological or physical issues you might be facing.  I also work with people who may not be in a place of suffering, but want to focus on their personal emotional development or past unresolved traumas.  

Therapy is a partnership, whereby we venture out together to navigate your personal journey. The therapeutic process has the ability to help raise your self-awareness and  self-connection, which helps to create a space for self healing.  My approach is based on a blend of integrative therapy and the mind body connection.  I blend talk and cognitive therapy with body focussed methods called Somatic Psychotherapy.  I am specialised in working with trauma and I have a particular interest in autoimmune, chronic illness and syndromes and how we somatise (hold) trauma in the body.  I list below the therapeutic models I work with and the areas/conditions that I work with can be found here

 

I like to educate as part of the therapeutic process.  I feel this helps to increase self-awareness and overall understanding of what it is you might be experiencing.  I have a client learning area on my site which you will be able to access for more self help tools and information.  I also write a blog.

If you want to know more about me and how chronic illness led me to work in this area take a look here.
