Are you living your best life? If not, what's stopping you?
I provide integrative counselling for individual adults and adolescents. Sometimes you just need to talk, even if you don’t know where to start or what the problem is. My approach is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgemental environment, so you can voice your concerns while feeling heard.
My practice as a counsellor focuses on a mind-body-social approach to therapy. I combine EFT tapping and somatic therapies with traditional talk therapy to assist you in resolving your difficulties.
I offer an integrative approach as every person is different and this allows me to be flexible, tailoring sessions to individual needs. Research has shown that we have two distinct levels of awareness, embodied (physical body) and conceptual (mental structure, e.g., thoughts). I listen to both, the the narrative as well as the stress held in the body, and work together with you to come to the best possible outcome for you in the present.
I can help you work through stress, anger, low moods, low self-esteem, job related stress, phobias, grief, loss, old or recent trauma as well as unresolved childhood issues, and any other emotional blocks which may feel overwhelming or are keeping you stuck.
Ultimately our stresses and limitations are held not only in our mental narratives but also in our physical bodies. I also work with uncovering root causes of physical symptoms and any unconscious triggers which may be keeping symptoms chronic, and work with you to find resolution for optimal well being.
Wherever you are at right now, I believe in you. I am fully invested in doing my part to get you to connect to, and use, your inner resources, so you can move from a place of discomfort to one of positive transformation.
Working in groups can be a powerful way to access change within you. It can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light, resulting in new solutions. Furthermore, working in groups can ease a sense of isolation as it can build connection with the other members. The same as individual sessions, group sessions and workshops are also confidential. Consider attending my monthly EFT tapping circle or organising a group for people experiencing similar issues. This is also a cost effective way of accessing support.
