I offer a warm and relational approach that supports open dialogue through creating a space which supports you as an individual and your reason for coming to counselling.

Ways of working together may include:

  • Listening, reflection, holding presence and open dialogue
  • Bringing awareness to thoughts, feelings and behaviours that effect your experience of life and relationships
  • Identifying the stories, you tell yourself or internal narratives and making links with how they impact your experience
  • Working with the body and somatic approaches
  • Creativity; working with images, metaphors, drawing, dreams and archetypes
  • Mindfulness, nervous system awareness and emotional regulation skills
  • Psychoeducation and information
  • Supporting your strengths, hopes, goals, growth and transformation towards wellbeing

Working as an Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor means that in addition to the ways of working described above I hold a space for the human heart and soul in my work.

What this means in practice is that I hold a care and a trust for your inner wisdom and your life’s personal journey. I pay attention to this and what this means for the changes and healing that you may be seeking. For example, attention may be given to the meaning of your challenges through creative ways; giving space for information that is less in your immediate awareness to arise. This may allow for closer contact with what is true and authentic for you and your growth.

This framework is held alongside my solid foundation of clinical experience and an integrative model of counselling which in cooperates knowledge from a range of therapeutic models . I do not believe that ‘one size fits all’. Together we will collaborate to create an approach to our work that will be most supportive for you.
