On this page you will hopefully get a bit of a feel for who I am as a person and as a therapist and my approach to and what I value about the therapeutic process and the therapeutic relationship.

About My Approach

We are all unique. I therefore tailor my approach and use different therapeutic modalities to support you to understand and integrate your body, mind and spirit and make sense of yourself in how you respond to life events, love or pain, in order to regain clarity, grounding, sense of self and dignity.

One important aspect of my approach is the environment in which the therapeutic process unfolds. It is one of kindness and compassion. When we judge ourselves or others, we cannot see the truth. Developing a compassionate curiosity is the backdrop and attitude in which healing and new possibilities can emerge.

It is important you feel safe and comfortable. A good therapist can be a creative catalyst for change, aiming to help clients take control of their life in a productive and satisfying way. At the heart of this is the client / therapist relationship. I offer an empathic and non-judgemental environment where you can feel free to express yourself in complete confidence.

As well as working cognitively, I work somatically as trauma and stress affect the body and the nervous system. I have 20 years of meditation experience and therefore include mindfulness and somatic based reflective practices in the sessions. These can be deeply resourcing allowing for trauma and stress to be safely transformed into resilience and growth.

Founded and pioneered by Dr Peter Levine, I am currently undertaking the 3-year Somatic Experiencing training, a somatic based therapy in the healing of trauma and stress related conditions that taps into and activates the body’s own resources and potential for self-healing.
