Working at your own pace I aim to bring clarity, creativity & sensitivity to my work with warmth, humour and maturity. With my passionate beliefs of self-determination & responsibility, I offer fresh insight in affirming, supportive ways.
I offer guidance and support so fresh ways of seeing yourself, the options and making choices become available. Alongside the issues you bring to therapy, we may look at where you would like to be in your life and what prevents you getting there, so far.
My role is to get to know you and for you to develop a greater understanding of yourself in a safe, confidential, supportive, and jargon-free environment - a space for you to explore what you want to explore, also how you feel, think and act.
I value the humanity in us all & acknowledge our own resources, qualities and strengths alongside our frailties, limitations, and vulnerabilities. Having an impartial perspective, I usually work both intuitively & with knowledge, experience & understanding of what brings you I recognise people can't simply be reduced down to a diagnosis, symptoms or issues.
I welcome, value and respect people's diversity, uniqueness, autonomy. My counselling experience includes working with men and women, old and young, who are straight, bisexual, lesbian, gay, whatever our sexuality, skin colour, people of many nationalities and cultures, those who are religious, hold spiritual beliefs, atheist and agnostic. What clients value the most is feeling comfortable with the therapist and being in a collaborative relationship.
My interest in therapy developed in 1982. I have completed 5 years training in psychosynthesis psychotherapy and counselling in London drawn to it because it was described as a psychology of the soul. My training combined the physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, and spiritual aspects of a person and help me gain a broader understanding of myself and others. I realised that some things come naturally in life and other things need to be learnt. As qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, in my practice I bring together over 30 years experience of working with people at points of change in their lives, both in the voluntary sector and privately. Over this period I have valued listening to people’s life stories. I acknowledge and aspire to share what I have learnt from others.
People come to counselling or psychotherapy for many important reasons - maybe going through a difficult period in life, having certain challenges. Some issues are specific, like relationship concerns, confidence and esteem, stress, fear, anxiety, anger management, procrastination, unhelpful habits or addictions, depression, bereavement, grief and others of a reflective, existential nature - many are usually both. The therapy focuses on you yourself, who and how you are, the issues you bring, their impact, why they are a problem to you, what they might be saying, mean for you, including your perspective, future potential, emerging purpose, and if appropriate, how you can overcome, manage them, what your next steps might be.
