How I Work

Naturally, I will tailor what I do according to what you need whether that is simply to get through an immediate crisis or whether you're more concerned with finding your true potential on a more spiritual or soulful plane. Much of my time is spent really listening to you while you explore your feelings, unravelling the troubling knots in your experience. Sometimes, to help this process, we might agree to work with objects or art, with guided visualisations or characters from stories or myths. Where appropriate, I may suggest that you tune into the information your body has to offer through focusing or felt-sense work which is where we learn to interpret the body's responses to events. In my experience, these methods can sometimes help us to access deeper truths more easily than thinking and talking alone.

It’s entirely up to you whether to work in any of these ways or to stick to the more traditional talking therapy.

I will encourage you to bring whatever material you like to your sessions with me: as well as key events in your life, this might include stories you tell yourself about what your life might be like and the dreams you have while asleep. For me, dreams are an important part of our unconscious world – they are prompts from our unconscious, giving us clues about parts of us which are often hidden during our waking hours. In order to know ourselves well and to achieve our full potential, we would do well to pay attention to the messages dreams offer us.

I like to work in an open-ended way (i.e. long term and with no set maximum number of sessions) so that what we can achieve isn’t restricted by time. If, however, you prefer to set a limit on the number of sessions we will have, I am happy to discuss this. The minimum number of sessions I offer is 8.

If you have questions about any of this, please contact me on 07817 192008. I offer a FREE initial meeting of up to 30 minutes so that we can decide whether working together is right for us. Just contact me to arrange this.
