The psychotherapy and counselling work I offer involves stepping into a joint process of awareness and exploration of the emotional patterning and dynamics that underlie your identity and which feed into your personality.
I offer skilled and sensitive emotional support and self exploration through this awareness process. This generates new self understanding and from this the potential to 'let go' of whatever is causing pain, anxiety or distress internally/externally, body/mind.
Exploring experiences whether from early and formative years of development, through puberty and adolescence, early childhood or later life will be done jointly, collaboratively in the moment. I will explore your experiences with you. Sensitive reflection and discussion will bring a piecing together of an intricate, subtle and subjective psychophysical web of events, feelings, relationships, thoughts and ideas to gain insight and the dissolution of emotional patterns that hold pain.
I will encourage you to be 'alive in the moment' and present to really see yourself as fully as possible, to work to gently challenge what you avoid in yourself and your life to access what is denied and ignored inside to bring greater space, ease and openness. We will work with your experience of your body's 'felt sense'.
Healing happens through this joint process of awareness where respect, empathy and compassion can be accessed and experienced in unlimited ways
