I have been working with individuals, people in relationships and with groups for over 20 years.
At the heart of my approach to the work I do, is my belief that who we are and how we experience the world is informed by our history.
I see all the work I do, rooted in the understanding that the internal and the external are connected. For me this means that our family, the social/society, the psychological and the spiritual/natural world, combine to contribute to how we develop in the world. And all of these areas can be brought to the work we do together for exploration.
Many of the clients I work with want to explore issues such as depression, relationship problems and relating with others, anxiety and stress, confidence, self esteem, loss of meaning and purpose and bereavement. I also work with sexual abuse issues and childhood wounding. Other areas of interest are working with Identity issues, such as those around Race, Religion, Disability, Class, Sex and Gender, and Sexual Identity.
I work in person but during the coronavirus pandemic I will discuss switching sessions to phone or zoom, as necessary.
I work in English.
