With wholehearted welcome, I offer a safe, therapeutic space in service to the journey you are called to explore.  

In support of a return to wholeness, I shall accompany you as you move beyond old stories and scripts toward your authentic vitality reconnecting with yourself, others and the world you are part of and belong.

An aspect of our humanity is our drive to make meaning, to story tell and story make.  When parts of our essence are hidden, avoided or denied, it isn't possible for us to live the fullness of who we are and we become stuck in a story written a long time ago, maybe one we inherited before we were born.  I recently undertook a piece of personal research which became a journey of soul.  As a creative counsellor, I invite you to undertake your own research, enlivening the healing potential of your imagination, exploring different mediums as bridges to unite and awaken connection with your body, mind, soul and spirit - whatever that means for you.  

Free from interpretation and judgement, I shall support your meaning making process as you relearn how to welcome and integrate what you discover with compassion and curiosity, freeing yourself to live with growing authenticity. 

Working creatively is an ancient practice of alchemy, it is indigenous and innate to us all.  Inspired by the serious play of Carl Jung, this may include working with archetypes,symbols & metaphor, mark making with paint or pastel, creating mandalas, writing & poetry, phototherapy, dreams, objects, clay, stories, baking, conscious embodiment, movement, guided visualisations, working with ancestry, tarot or drama.  By honouring our need for soul expression, we can come home to ourselves, awakening our lost or diminished sense of belonging and integrity.

Services:

 

Our deepest longing is to be seen and accepted for who we are and to experience an embodied, reciprocal connection with others and the world we are part of.  Through the practice of play and creative expression, we invite aspects of our personal and collective unconscious, widening our perception beyond the ordinary and ultimately coming into contact with our unexpressed self.

My aim in counselling is to enable you to be and feel heard, to be witnessed so that you can develop your own inner witness.  Together we will co-create a relationship that will support you to develop a stronger sense of who you are, what you want and need, and understand how you are in relationships so that you can be with yourself and others with a greater sense of awareness and authenticity, where your boundaries and choices mirror your identified needs and values.

 

My commitment to you is to:

  • listen to you with an open mind & an open heart

  • accept you and never judge you

  • maintain your confidentiality

  • challenge you & champion you

  • be willing to learn from you and to grow

  • provide affordable counselling

  • continue my ongoing development

  • work alongside you with integrity and professionalism

  • support you as you explore your feelings & experiences

How counselling helps

 

I experience counselling and my movement practices as co-creation, two people developing a dynamic and responsive relationship. My invitation is for you to explore and unpack what is around for you with me as your companion and witness.

Counselling is a two-person practice where the relationship is at the heart of the work and if willing and curious, anyone can benefit. We all need support at different times in our lives and counselling can help you to feel less anxiety, worry and shame alongside an increased flexibility and personal freedom as you feel more connected to yourself and the people in your life. 

 

Interweaving my practices of person-centred counselling, somatic movement education & therapy and the creative arts, you are invited to:

  • Explore your self-concept and become more connected to your body, needs, feelings, thoughts and emotions.

  • Develop your self-awareness and compassionate acceptance of who you are.

  • Trust and value your own experiences.

  • Build your self-worth.

  • develop optimal boundaries with yourself and others.

  • heal from your trauma, whatever that is.

  • Learn how to tolerate and ultimately welcome feelings which communicate to you that you have an unmet need.

  • Learn how to self-care and self-regulate when your nervous system activates.

  • Be spontaneous and playful.

  • Explore your freedom of expression creatively.
