PG, Dip, Psychodynamic Counselling & Human Relations (COSCA accredited) . MSc, Art Psychotherapy. BA, Hons, Fine Art. Member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
My approach is kind, non-judgmental and dynamic. I am trained in psychodynamic counselling, which specialises in how we humans get along with each other, and how we can be affected by our past. I’m also trained in working with trauma. Including understanding how the body responds emotionally and physically to stress.
Research has shown that talking therapies can support the healing process from traumatic life experiences, and childhood trauma that affects adult life.
It is my role to support you towards a better understanding of your feelings, emotions and life situations.
I will be very supportive in helping you talk about your life. Relationships, culture, gender and sexuality lie at the core of who we are. However, it is often just those very aspects of our lives and culture that cause us difficulties.
Successful therapy can help you become more self-aware and gain a better understanding of yourself. As a result, you may find ways of doing things differently.
I am also an artist with a professional studio practice. Creativity is of great importance to supporting a balanced life. I am influenced by nature and connections with the landscape and I use these connections to make jewellery and visual art that communicates layers of experience that cannot always be simply spoken.
