Hi everyone, welcome to my site.
Here's a bit about my story:
I have always been interested in the power of emotions, the body's ability to self heal and the way a free spirit can liberate a person. The body may well remember the trauma of your life lived but with the right environment and support, emotional healing can be truly life transforming.
The importance of a healthy body and mind can never be underestimated nor taken for granted. I believe that everyone deserves the chance to be the best version of self and with the right kind of support, so much can be achieved for every person.
This belief has led my career years as a psychologist and as a qualified and registered complementary and holistic therapist.
Additionally I have a PGDip postgraduate qualification in person-centred counselling, psychotherapy and psychological wellbeing.
I have a certificate in counselling children and young people (8 - 18 years old) as well a Level I and II in Emotion Focused Therapy and a COSCA Counselling Skills certificate.
I am also certified to work online safely as a cyber therapist.
I currently work face-to-face and online with a wide range of ages and presenting issues in individuals, couples, families and children/young people in my own busy private practice.
As a meditation and mindfulness teacher too, I believe that periods of quiet and reflection are what are truly missing in today's busy and hectic lifestyles leading to all sorts of stress and burn out.
I run "Peri/Post-Menopause Clinics"on a weekly basis in small, therapeutic and friendly groups.
Working with clients from all backgrounds and lifestyles, I have a particularly keen interest in working with historical childhood trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's), sudden impactful and painful life experiences, boarding school syndrome, low self-esteem as well as feeling like you don't belong or fit into "mainstream" life .
Additionally, I run support groups for peri-menopause and post-menopausal difficulties, anxiety, anger, emotional overwhelm and burnout and the negative impact these experiences may be having on your day-to-day life.
If any of the above situations resonate with your situation today and/or if you're feeling stressed, anxious, emotionally "all over the place", and/or overwhelmed, send me an email today and lets start the conversation about helping you unpack the "old stuff" from the past and feel more like you want to be in your life in the present.
When you have the privileged task of being able to work with a client you should at the very least be well-qualified, experienced and insured for the job.
A technician of treatments or therapy is not to be confused with the term "therapist".
Does the person you have therapy with have the right training and professional credentials for the task at hand?
Do they have the practical and accredited skills in the physical and psychological well-being of their client? Does the therapist have insurance and belong to the professional counselling bodies to the abide by the ethics and standards of these bodies like the BACP, UKCP, Counselling Directory, the ICO and the FHT?
Don't be afraid to ask for and see the official registration and certification from your current therapist to reassure yourself that you are in the safest, most capable hands for your needs.
To be in a position of trust and support for clients is not one that I undertake lightly and I feel very humbled by the amount of people that have turned to me for help over the years.
With the client always in mind and their well-being foremost, I offer a unique service that is able to combine counselling, psychotherapy, stress management, mindfulness and meditation practice as well as holistic and lifestyle well-being too.
I believe that, at times, our bodies hold the traumas that our minds can't comprehend and our voices can't speak. Unlocking this in a therapeutic, caring setting can be the start of transfomative living.
LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO HAVE!
