THERAPY

It is well documented that the most important element in creating the change which comes about through therapy is the therapeutic relationship itself.  I am skilled and experienced at working through layers of potentially self-sabotaging patterns to co-create trusting and healing relationships with my clients. Clients are then able to gently explore where they are in their life, how they got there, and make empowered choices about where to go from here, often experiencing better, more fulfilling relationships with those around them at the same time. 

As well as exploration and dialogue, when it is appropriate my approach includes working with guided meditation, dreams, intuition and the imagination.  This allows what we are not usually aware of to speak and guide us.  Feeling more connected with our own inner wisdom creates confidence and self-esteem.  We nurture our own uniqueness and meet life’s challenges with greater resilience.  My work is always led by you, the client, so any approaches I use will be with your individual needs and wishes in mind.

 

My integrative approach, based on the modality of Psychosynthesis, enables me to work with issues ranging from trauma to a sense of ‘something missing’, and to address needs ranging from the healing of life-long wounds to an interest in self-awareness and personal development.

  • Eating Disorders – Bulimia, Anorexia, Binge Eating, Body Dysmorphia

  • Transitional phases – e.g. menopause

  • Feeling ‘not enough’ or ‘not good enough’
