I am an experienced, qualified Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist and counsellor, offering individual psychotherapy and counselling for adult client group.
I offer an integrative approach using psychosynthesis modality, behavioural and psychodynamic tools.
I offer daytime and evening sessions; Monday to Friday.
I invite initial telephone conversation to answer any queries.
I have lived and enjoyed the rich experiences of both the East and West and have great appreciation of different cultures and family roots. Having worked in the care of people throughout my career in nursing, counselling and psychotherapy, I am interested in the uniqueness of a person, individual concerns and aspirations.
My approach is caring, sensitive yet incisive, always holding the well-being and safety of the individual foremost.
I use my time with an individual to evaluate their needs, hear their issues and support their anxieties. My aim is always to give the individual a safe space in which to explore their issues and face their difficulties.
I am sensitive to the links between physical and psychological health and how they relate to each other.
Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy and therapeutic counselling (my original training) focuses on the potential of the individual as well as the past and present, helping to realise their true worth.
Psychosynthesis offers an approach to see the person as a whole with choices and not just someone with presenting diagnosis and symptoms.
