If you're feeling the pull towards your personal exploration and inner growth work, I'd be delighted to explore working with you... 

 

Sometimes reaching out for support arrives with some difficulty or resistance, it's not easy admitting that you're feeling flat, not coping or failing to thrive... but let's be honest we could all do with a helping hand from time to time! 

And so, if you're looking for a friendly and down to earth creative counsellor, I'd be delighted to hear from you.

What Happens in Therapy Sessions? 

Talk Therapy: I will support you to drop deeper into your experience, to get beneath the usual way of talking about your problem. Together we will explore what is really going on for you, helping you gain more understanding and insight into your emotions, thoughts and behaviour. You will have the time to feel, talk, cry, or just think. It's an opportunity to give yourself the time to work things out. 

Somatic and Creative Expressive Approaches:

There are a number of illuminating and exploratory 'beyond words' approaches that I might introduce you to. These body-oriented and creative methods are useful when you can't find the right words, when you feel 'stuck', or if you're skilled at using words to mask, hide or minimise your problem. Your body, and your creative process, can offer enormous wisdom, supporting you to process things through a new lens, offering the possibility for deep insight, new perspectives and inspired next steps (zero creative talent required!).

Therapeutic Tasks:

I may invite you to experiment with any number, or combination of, therapeutic tasks: emotional freedom techniques, therapeutic journaling, drawing or doodling, symbolic 'play', writing a letter/s, mindfulness, reading a self-help passage, practicing meditation or commiting to taking a walk; the list is endless! There are so many interesting and illuminating resources and therapeutic exercises that you might find useful and many people enjoy.

Therapeutic Coaching: 
After working together for some time, when we have got a lot of what was 'in the way' of your moving forward 'out of the way', I will support you to claim your brilliance, working together in a solution focused and coaching capacity to help you refine and set goals, plan next steps and move even further towards the life you really want for yourself.
