Whether you are feeling stuck, anxious or restricted in your current situation, I provide a safe space for you to reconnect to your inner capacity to live the life you chose with understanding and vitality.
Difficult, painful, or confusing experiences can feel hard to make sense of alone, so having space to explore them in new ways and perspectives can help process and digest what is happening.
As an integrative therapist I draw on a range of approaches to support you including humanistic and psychodynamic theory, Gestalt therapy and creative approaches to working with mind and body – you are unique, so your sessions are unique to you.
We may use talking therapy to help find out more about you, understand your story and how it is affecting you. We may also use a creative approach, working with imagery to explore and express feelings and see situations that you perhaps don’t yet have a clear picture about or words for.
We can also work with your body to help process and understand your experience. Finding understanding and making meaning together, I offer a space for you to find peace and begin to move forward with a re connected sense of yourself.
In addition to private practice with adults, I work as a therapist for children in schools. I also run regular group workshops and one-to-one sessions that facilitate healthy embodiment and a holistic approach to supporting our relationship to our body and mind as a resource for growth, creativity and wellbeing.
