I am especially interested and influenced by Process Oriented Psychology ("Process Work") as developed by Arny Mindell and colleaugues. This approach has its roots in Jungian Psychology, Quantum Physics, Taoism and Shamanism. I also utilise ideas and techniques from Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness training Family Constellations, and mainstream psychological theories. I draw upon ideas from the creative disclipines and use art, music, movement, and drama in my work. I also use sand tray, symbol work and dreamwork.

I am committed to providing the highest quality service. I regularly attend professional training and personal development seminars. I subscribe to several therapeutic publications and I have regular and ongoing professional supervision and personal therapy.
In a more practical sense, I am committed to working together with people 'where they are at' - this means at times therapy might look like people conversing, at others - like a big party, or even a meditation session!
Since 1997, I have worked therapeutically with people of all ages encountering a wide range of problems and challenges. Additionally, I have specific experience working with children and adolescents, people who have experienced trauma, grief and loss, and with women regarding pregnancy related or parenting issues.
I'm an experienced Clinical Supervisor, currently working with individuals and teams from a variety of backgrounds.
I am experienced in facilitating and co-facilitating groups on all sorts of topics. I find significant benefits and inspiration for all are to be gained from groupwork!
I am particularly interested in offering groupwork around connecting with Ancestry and have training in Family Constellation work.

Welcome! It often can feel quite daunting when we first decide to find a Counsellor. Well done - you are on your way! I'm interested in supporting you in an empowering way to achieve a sense of 'wholeness' and wellbeing. I believe that we all have this potential.
