Psychotherapy offers you the opportunity to take some time out and make some sense of it all.
You deserve to be met with respect, compassion and sensitivity.
We start by building trust, and by exploring the strengths which help you in your life.
If it feels safe and helpful to do so, we move onto addressing the stories and experiences which cause distress or trauma, or hold you back from living your life how you want to.
We work in a way which feels comfortable for you, this could include:
– talking and listening.
-working with nature, either in the therapy room, or outdoors, in a dedicated space in the garden, or elsewhere
-bringing attention to body sensations, movement impulses, your breathing pattern or physical symptoms
-paying attention to what happens between us as human beings
-sand tray, drawing, writing, making
-working with simple physical experience
We bring compassionate attention to what is happening right now, and support the process of positive change.
I have long experience of working with a variety of experiences, including:
-Grief and loss
-Suicidal thoughts and feelings
-Shame and guilt
-Physical pain and chronic illness
-Betrayal and breakdown of trust
-Difficulties with self -confidence and self-esteem
-Autism, Aspergers Syndrome
