To begin with I offer a free session to enable us to tune in to each other and make sure that we’re a good fit. Once we’ve agreed to work together your therapeutic journey is shaped by what emerges in the sessions.
I offer a framework for your therapy that provides reparative conditions that are safe and holding. I aim to provide a kind and understanding atmosphere in which your feelings can be processed and validated, creating the conditions that enable you to heal and allow self-insights to emerge and for any outdated patterns to change.
Talking may be the mode in which we do this work or we may include working creatively, for example with pad and pens, using therapeutic sand tray and / or allowing the body’s wisdom a space to be expressed and contained through creative movement.
With a background in professional dance and as a movement psychotherapist, I have an interest in the body-mind connection and for this reason my therapy room is large enough to include movement when and if it’s helpful.
I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as in-depth training in Mindfulness from a longstanding Buddhist practice, and whilst I do not work exclusively with these approaches, I find they can be valuable tools to integrate into deeper therapeutic work.
