Therapy can bring us into more intimate contact with the painful stories we hold within us. These stories, often hidden even from ourselves, have a huge impact on our wellbeing and creativity. As psychoanalyst Carl Jung said ‘When a situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate’. In other words, we cannot release what we don’t understand, and we can’t understand what we reject out of fear. Working together, we can start to make sense of the challenges you have faced.
Compassion for our own suffering is the ground which makes change possible, gradually unravelling the contracted knots within that stand in the way of living a fulfilled life right now. My job is to create a safe space in which this process can unfold naturally, standing with you throughout.
I have worked with clients in a number of areas, such as bereavement, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, loneliness, despair, cultural issues, stress-related illnesses, disability, spiritual crisis and existential issues such as loss of meaning and direction in life.
I also offer clinical supervision, providing individual supervision for Psychotherapists and Counsellors in private practice, and for those in training.
