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.

'Unwind at Work' - Bright Energy & Fair Fellowship

'The neurological benefits of mindfulness have been linked to an increase in emotional intelligence, specifically empathy and self regulation. It's the development of these areas that contributes to our ability to manage conflict and communicate more effectively. Mindfulness also enables us to take a step back and consider alternative perspectives rather than simply reacting to events and using the least intelligent area of our brains to make decisions. Mindfulness helps us to flick the switch back to the smart parts of our brain to put us back in control of our emotions, enabling us to choose a more appropriate response'. (The Guardian)

"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.
