Counselling

I offer face-to-face and telephone sessions. My therapeutic approach is integrative, with transpersonal themes. I use a range of approaches from different therapeutic models, with an overall interest in supporting Mind, Body & Spirit.

I am influenced by  systemic constellation work, exploring the relationships that we have with others, as a way to build a brighter outlook for the future. Using pebbles, shells and small figures of people and animals gives you a simple yet empowering way of exploring the place of each other in your own family system and embody a more desired, bright future.

I may also use CBT techniques as part of my therapeutic approach as a way to help gain a renewed sense of purpose.

Nature provides us with an abundance of resources in our therapeutic work. I use fossils and shells in different ways, including grounding techniques and present time focus, building a sturdy foundation for developing resilience.

 

We work together to draw on that inner capacity for positive change, which we all have deep down.  We may include visualisation, mindfulness, relaxation techniques, Bach Flower Remedies and creative techniques to help bring balance, but always in a safe, nurturing environment.

Counselling sessions are:

£45 per 1 hour individuals

£60 per 1 hour couples counselling   

I offer reduced rates for low incomes

Please note that missed sessions or if cancelled in less than 24 hours will be charged for.

'Wellness at Work' - Bright Energy & Fair Fellowship   
Looking for ways to improve mood in your workplace over the winter months? I visit YOUR workplace for this amazing opportunity.

Would you like to show your staff that you appreciate and value them? Book a personal development taster session for small groups of approx 4 people. This will benefit the whole work environment. Emotional awareness; Building Resilience; Improving Relationships.

This is a holistic session to raise awareness to personal development methods and the benefits of counselling sessions which would be arranged privately and held at my Studio. This is an extremely useful session, introducing a variety of techniques and life skills to improve mental health and general wellbeing. Personal therapy is something that can bring life-changing results, improving quality of life, increasing confidence and performance. Several methods of ways to improve our conscious awareness that can be accessed from the unconscious will be explored.

"Introducing mindfulness into the workplace does not prevent conflict from arising or difficult issues from coming up. But when difficult issues do arise... they are more likely to be skillfully acknowledged, held, and responded to by the group. Over time with mindfulness, we learn to develop the inner resources that will help us navigate through difficult, trying, and stressful situations with more ease, comfort, and grace". Mirabai Bush

Workplace visits are £100 for small groups of up to 4 people
Please contact me with any queries. Travel costs are extra.

I'm qualified as Equine facilitated Psychotherapist and combine working with the horses and ponies outside in nature. The initial assessment and sometimes creative work may take place in the shepherd's hut. Horses function in the here and now, they can reflect back to us parts of ourselves that may be hidden. In many ways horses are our teachers and they facilitate the sessions, with me ensuring the space is held in a safe way. These insights are therapeutic and healing.  Working with horses in nature is a therapeutic, experiential and holistic approach for improving general wellbeing, emotional support and working through trauma. For more information and charges please click on the orange button on the Home page.
