I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling (PGDip), validated by the Middlesex University and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
To ensure the safety and the quality of my practice, I am in regular supervision. I am also a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their Ethical Framework (https://www.bacp.co.uk/events-and-resources/ethics-and-standards/ethical-framework-for-the-counselling-professions/)
As an Integrative practitioner, I draw on a range of different approaches. These include Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Transpersonal as well as body-orientated methods, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques, mindfulness well as elements of Art Therapies.
My core training is in Psychosynthesis, an integrative psychological approach that can be adapted to your needs. Psychosynthesis incorporates current psychological research while drawing on wisdom traditions in its philosophy. It offers a holistic view of the psyche which encompasses your pain and difficulties as well as your unique potential. It acknowledges your complexity and it takes your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing into consideration.
Things I can help with include depression, anxiety and stress, low self-esteem, addictive behaviour patterns, bereavement and loss, physical illness and chronic pain, issues concerning belonging, culture and identity, relationships and family concerns, burnout, career and life choices, navigating transitions and change, questions concerning life's purpose.
I offer a warm, non-judgmental and creative approach. Above all else I will listen to you attentively and respectfully; we can then both decide on the direction of our work together.
I see counselling as a process of creative collaboration which does not need to be limited to a dialogue. Some people find it helpful to explore deeply ingrained patterns or complex feelings through guided imagery, dream work, drawing or movement. Others find that mindfulness-based cognitive approaches are well suited to their needs. There are many options, together we can find out what would be most helpful to you.
