"Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralysed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds' wings.”
I believe passionately in the primary importance of a respectful relationship between the client (clients) and therapist as a foundation for all work.
This is a completely confidential and professional relationship based on growing trust, empathy and unconditional positive regard. Relationships take time to create and develop through the experiences shared and witnessed in the therapeutic working alliance. I believe this supports the unfolding process of change and healing. As each individual or couple that I see is different, I tailor my work to your needs.
I have worked professionally as a teacher, artist and performer and my experience in these careers is of great benefit to me in my work as a practitioner. In this capacity I have supported people for many years with issues of self esteem through exploring their creativity, through story telling, image making, poetry, movement and music.
I continue to use these creative techniques in my therapeutic work. For example; sand-tray, symbols, drawing, poetry and walking in nature.
I also work with writers and artists who are experiencing a block.
Part of my commitment to you is that I continue to expand my own training, research and development in this growing field.
My wide knowledge base has lead me to believe that whatever the issue, healing, change and growth are very possible.
I have a private practice and run ongoing process therapy groups. I am also available to lead one-off seminars.
I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor qualified to practice Transactional Analysis (TA).
I hold an MSc in psychotherapy with Middlesex University.
I am a practicing registered member of the UKCP www.psychotherapy.org.uk.
I am a professional member of UKATA www.uktransactionalanalysis.co.uk, EATA and ITAA.
