I have completed a training in Mindfulness Based Core Process Psychotherapy at the Karuna Institute in Devon and have obtained a Master’s degree in Psychotherapy from the Middlesex University in London.
I am an UKCP accredited psychotherapist and registered member of BACP and adhere to their code of ethics and practice.
My interest is to develop awareness of the ‘here and now’, and to discover what it tells us about how we are in relationship to others, the world and ourselves. I consider therapy as a form of partnership between the client and myself, and by enquiring together into the present moment we can recognise old patterns we enact in the present.
Another focus I take in my work is exploring the space where mind and body meet. I believe they are not separate. The body knows. When we connect with and give attention to the body, we learn more about our emotional landscape. By listening to the body, we create pathways to our current and past experiences.
I work holistically. This means I engage with the spiritual dimension, if this is part of your perspective. There is scope within the sessions for exploring what meaning you make of your life, and the questions which arise from this.
