“and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk to bloom” – Anais Nin.
As a Qualified Integrative Therapist, I have trained in many different theories and models which have richly informed the way I practice.
I am passionate about the therapeutic process and work in a relational way; bringing respect, authenticity, empathy and warmth.
I am very much on this journey alongside you, and with intuition infused with curiosity strive to really understand what you are experiencing so we can make sense of it together.
I feel that an important part of the work is the co-creation of a safe and trusting environment to support you in feeling able to freely express yourself. This then allows us to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions.
I work with you to welcome your felt experience (emotions held in the body). This is powerful as the mind can stop the flow of emotions creating psychological distress and physical problems.
