I have 24 years’ experience in Counselling and mindfulness based Hakomi therapy in issues covering the full dimension of human experience, physical emotional mental and spiritual. I deeply respect each person’s authentic self and unique purpose in life, this serves as a guide in the unfolding therapy.
My work combines counselling and experiential psychotherapy. I use a blend of Western Psychology, Eastern Mindfulness and Body-centred Hakomi therapy. Recent findings in neuroscience inform aspects of my work.
Therapy can help you to:
My intention is to listen, to support change and self-understanding using mindfulness as a guiding principle. Neuroscience has shown how with the development of the mindful observer we can develop new neurological connections, reshaping the brain and allowing us to dis-identify with the repeating pattern of struggle. This creates opportunities to discover new responses to situations and to settle more easily into our essential self, enabling us to lead confident lives with increased levels of calm and contentment.
As a certified counsellor and Hakomi experiential therapist I enable a person to discover what they value and what is right for them beyond old fixed attitudes and beliefs about themselves, relationships and the world.
Sessions are collaborative, I work with an attitude of curiosity openness and compassion and hope to foster this within the sessions so clients can achieve their goals and live a more fulfilling life.
I take a mindfulness-based approach to self-understanding, incorporating body and mind to bring the wisdom of the body to the brain. I myself practise mindfulness and meditation and take a holistic view of the human experience.
