My work is informed by my training in person-centred practice and EFT couples counselling, where I offer a safe, non-judgmental place, journeying alongside men and women who are distressed by life’s events and supporting them in their quest for wholeness and healing. I have a strong belief in the positive nature of all human beings in that we will strive to do the best for ourselves. I believe in the uniqueness and worth of every individual and that we all deserve respect for our capacity to choose our own directions in life and to select and choose our own values to live by.
I believe that my client is the only expert of their internal world and therefore the only person who can decide who and how they should be. I understand that often our deeper parts are alienated but through the healing process we are able to become fully integrated as ‘mind’, ‘body’, and ‘spirit’, a wholeness that brings vibrancy and life. I work with ‘Body Process’ in a Gestalt sense, being curious around the phsyco-somatic connection.
My role is helping to facilitate ‘process’ within the therapeutic relationship that will develop between us. My clients will be heard and understood in an accepting way, where they will experience me as real and genuine in the relationship.
I also specialise in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) couples counselling.
I will do my best not to interpret anything that is said and done with my meanings, but try to clarify what these things may mean for you, the client, and how you are really feeling, tracking the negative cycle all the while exploring core emotions and begin linking attachment needs. The negative cycle is the enemy, not each other and that cycle often begins in childhood through wounds, hurt and pain inflicted.
I have a gentle demeanor and genuine attitude toward life. I am spiritually sensitive.
