COUNSELLING

Asking for help when life feels tough can be really challenging but, just by coming here, you’ve already taken the first step. 

I am an integrative counsellor drawing on a range of psychotherapeutic approaches. This enables me to tailor my therapy to you as an individual and to work in ways that best suit your unique needs.  Each of us has been shaped by the unique paths we’ve taken and by the way we move through the world, with our own histories, bodies and combination of cultural, ethnic, religious, gender and sexual differences. I seek to honour these and to offer a safe, confidential and compassionate space for you to explore your sense of self, your experience and your relationships with others.

Prior to training as a therapist I worked for many years as a Pilates teacher and my studies in psychology, mindfulness and embodiment led to me developing Somatic-Awareness Pilates. I am also a Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercise (TRE®)  Provider. As such I am especially interested in explorations of the body/mind interface and in trauma-orientated approaches rooted in neuroscience. Working with embodiment and mindfulness, I encourage clients to remain curious about how they are feeling in their body as well as what they are thinking and feeling emotionally.  Attachment theory, which explores early bonds with primary caregivers and how these impact our ways of being today, also greatly informs my work as do existential theories looking at how we make sense of the world and our place in it.

I work in private practice, both in-person and online, and offer open-ended therapy.

Free initial 20min zoom

Finding the right therapist for you is really important, therefore I offer a free initial 20 minute meeting via zoom. This can be an opportunity for you to tell me a little about what’s brought you to therapy, to learn more about how I work and most importantly to see if it feels a ‘good fit’ for you.

 

 

 

Online or in-person sessions

Therapy sessions are available online via zoom and in-person.

 

In-person sessions take place at Hides Farm Therapy Centre, surrounded by nature and just a few miles drive outside of Hastings towards Westfield. Free on-site parking is available.
