I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist seeing individuals and couples for both long and short-term work. I work with the whole spectrum of this human experience might bring including depression, anxiety, stress, grief, loss, panic, fear, transition, abuse, relationship issues, feeling of 'there must be more to life', sexuality, spirituality, illness, loss of meaning, crisis, relationship to food, drink, drugs etc. I take into account context, background and experiences that relate to any issue you might bring.
I have particular interest in:
- how things get lodged in our body, things that may have not been able to yet be processed, possibly chronic trauma from the past. I work with that tension between the desire to feel free to express our fullest selves and the pull to keep safe and protect.
- all things connected to relating and relationship issues. Between different aspects of ourselves and our relationships to others, partner, family, boss, friends, significant others, colleagues etc. Desire for connection and closeness, need for space and the contortions we can get in, in the dance of human connection or avoidance of it. Affairs, betrayal, separation. I work with couples as well as individuals.
- our relationship to our 'wild' nature, between the wilder and more domesticated aspects of us. I do offer sessions outdoors so do talk to me if this is something you are interested in. However it is not something that ever needs to happen if not appropriate.
