Background

Before training to become a psychotherapist I worked with physical health and progressed into psychotherapy to facilitate a good understanding of emotional and mental well being. I developed further as a Yoga teacher to now recognise the body and mind as one. Most psychotherapies focus on the mind through the use of cognitive approaches with the body seen as separate. In my work, people can understand how they inhabit their body to experience better integration both physically and psychologically.

My Approach

The main theoretical model underpinning my psychotherapy work is Transactional Analysis. This is a wide ranging psychological theory, with ideas on how we become who we are, how we relate to others and how we can make personal changes. The theory also incorporates a relational depth, with a whole methodology enabling me to work to effect deeper emotional change within clients.

Central to my approach lies in working with the process of how people relate to each other, and themselves. Exploring how we may use the mind and body for creative self protective measures that sometimes get in the way of a more fulfilling style of relating. I use the therapeutic relationship as a tool to help with understanding these dynamics, and to facilitate personal and interpersonal change.

Experience

I have extensive experience of working in-depth with people in private practice and in the voluntary sector, where difficulties are deep rooted and take the necessary time to unravel to reach personal resolution.

My background in physical health and Yoga practices euip me to work with a balanced body and mind approach.

The Healing Relationship

'Letting go of our suffering is the hardest work we will ever do. It is also the most fruitful. To heal means to meet ourselves in a new way - in the newness of each moment where all is possible and nothing is limitied to the old'.  Stephen Levine.
