Our work together
What is Psychotherapy & Counselling?
Psychotherapy is a process designed to help us gain greater awareness of the inner belief systems at the root of our relationship with ourselves and the outside world.
Insights into our motivations, thought patterns and difficult life events and how those have shaped our way of coping with life can help to identify what no longer serves us. We become free to make more informed choices that are aligned with our values and bring meaning and purpose.
How does it work?
Each of us is a unique human being, so the process will be different for everyone. The fundamental premise is for you to feel safe and to go at your own pace. No subject is off limits, and I offer my full presence to truly hear what may be troubling you. For many clients this is the first time that they feel heard and accepted unconditionally with warmth and compassion. This creates a safe and holding space for you to find your inner guidance and a voice to express yourself in the world in a more authentic way.
My approach is warm but challenging. In the beginning stages of our work together I help clients implement simple techniques to calm the nervous system that may have been running on high alert and causing an array of symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia and a sense of being overwhelmed.
For deeper exploration, I work with the felt sense in the body and offer visualisations, dreamwork and other creative expressions that gently and playfully invite the guidance of your innermost wise self. I am also a passionate advocate of being in nature as a way of fostering a sense of well-being and connection to something greater than ourselves. It is my hope that through our work together you will experience more peace, vitality and empowerment in your life.
Taking the first step can feel daunting. I hope that this website has given you an initial sense of me and how I work. Whatever brought you here, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
