How I work
I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment where you can make sense of and deal with the challenges in your life. I believe that we all have the ability to develop and change throughout our lives.
My approach to counselling is based on Psychosynthesis, a talking therapy, which integrates elements from humanistic, psychodynamic and transpersonal psychology. Psychosynthesis is a holistic approach which takes into account the whole person – body, mind, feelings, and spirit. It is creative and flexible and can be adapted to the individual needs of each person.
In addition, I am trained in working with a wide range of techniques including guided visualisation, relaxation, gestalt chair work, and free drawing. Engagement with our inner creative and imaginative capacities can provide a powerful resource in dealing with difficult past and present experiences and in accessing our inner potential.
I can offer sessions both on a short-term or long-term basis depending on your needs. Short-term counselling usually focuses on working on a specific issue whereas long-term counselling goes deeper, exploring not only the present but also the past to understand current patterns of relating and difficulties that block us from being and expressing who we truly are.
