Therapeutic Approach

I believe we are intrinsically well and healthy - it is our experiences and conditioning that may, over time, lead us away from this core wellness. In the safe and holding container of a creative therapeutic relationship a client can bring old patterns and conditioning into conscious awareness and reclaim their essential wellness.. it is never too late to have a good childhood! I use Mindful techniques, compassionate awareness, movement and creativity to enable the client to rediscover their creativity and aliveness and hopefully step into a wider, fuller life. Kindness, compassion , collaboration and creativity underscore my therapeutic practice. I have undertaken Sensorimotor training ( Certificates One and Two, Trauma and Development) ,Movement Therapy ( Institute of Body Psychotherapy, Switzerland) and currently completing my training as a Core Process Psychotherapist ( UKCP trainee). In the past I have also trained in motivational interviewing and CBT.

Background

Prior to training as a psychotherapist I have worked as a qualified mental health social worker in community and hospital settings for 14 years. I have a previous background in teaching, training and journalism. I have a particular interest in issues around adoption, identity and exile, trauma and pre and perinatal psychotherapy.
