I believe everyone has the resources to be in rewarding contact with themselves as well as with other human beings. Often life can bring times of enormous change, grief or transitions, bringing with them stressors, the impacts of which can significantly affect our lives and our relationships. This can sway confidence and relationships; we can feel immense anxiety, grief, loss, depression or simply feel utterly overwhelmed.
I want to hear your story. Why? Because your story is significant – it makes up your belief system of who you are and what has led you to my door.
I practice a combination of modalities all with a pull towards relational, mindful and humanistic therapies. I focus on gestalt therapy, family constellation therapy but also work with mindfulness and attachment theory. Empirical research has shown that the emotional quality of our earliest attachment figures influences not only our development, but also who we seek relationships with as adults and, further, how we parent our own children.
I see my task being to support change and to guide you to see more clearly about your situation and experiment in finding new ways to transition through challenge. I pay attention to patterns that emerge in your relationships – with friends, colleagues, partners, family and with yourself, of which provide glimpses of your inner experience. The way I work can be profoundly life changing and leverage beyond grief, pain, anxiety, sadness or despair.
Often I will work with props as well as talking therapy, using items as representatives of other people in your life. Each session will be different and will be suited to the person or people who sit before me.
