and Counselling psychology
07760 288 689
As a therapist I support people to heighten awareness about their behavioural and relationship patterns. I believe we all have the answers we seek but due to different reasons in life we lose touch with our inner wisdom. I help people to re-connect with themselves so they can find their own answers and paths in life.
In our work together, I will help you to make sense of what is happening in your life. I will support you to gain awareness on how you navigate in the world and your active role in your situation. The aim is for you to begin to make informed choices about your future, your goals and your plans.
My holistic approach is focused on support, communication, relationship-building and self-awareness, empowering and supporting people to achieve their goals.
I pay attention to the person as a whole, focusing on the present moment and encouraging a balance between body, feeling, intellect and imagination. I also integrate different therapeutic models to suit your needs, like gestalt therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfullness and systemic therapy.
I provide a safe, confidential, supportive and nurturing environment where we can explore your needs together and agree what will be most effective for you.
I offer short term and long term therapy and the interventions followed will vary depending on the modality of your choice. Short term therapy is more suited to treat more specific issues and long term therapy helps to explore deeper matters rooted in childhood experiences.
Postnatal therapy groups.
We give birth to our baby and ourselves at the same time… But we are forgotten in the process. When we become mammas our identity fades away and we become invisible, our relationship/family unit changes, we open a door to our own childhood, the hormonal imbalance is brutal, and the act of giving birth is life changing.
Unfiltered Motherhood is a project aimed to build a community for women to attend to all those experiences listed above. Therapy groups where the focus is the mother and the goal is to demystify the ideal picture of motherhood. These are therapy groups for women to gain support from other women.
