Drawing on ideas and methods from different schools of thought, I tailor how I work in response to each individual and their concerns. My approach is relational and flexible and drawn in particular from existential psychotherapy, gestalt, psychodynamics and mindfulness. I offer a supportive and open space where you’ll be listened to, taken seriously, encouraged to reflect more deeply on your life experiences and to find a new perspective on whatever is troubling you. At the heart of my approach is the belief that we all have the capacity, creativity and inner resources to find our own solutions and that self-awareness is key to finding balance, emotional resilience and well being.
I work with people who bring a wide range of concerns. I’m also a trained bereavement counsellor with over 5 years experience in an NHS Hospice, this includes working with people suffering a traumatic bereavement such as a suicide, sudden death, death of a child.
