I work as a counsellor, body psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer in private practice in Stroud. Previously I have worked as a group worker and counsellor at Inishfree - a local drug and alcoholrehab. I hold a diploma to practise Embodied-Relational Therapy. ERT is a new form of psychotherapy, which integrates body-oriented work, psychodynamic therapy, process approaches and spirituality. My supervision training was with the Centre for Supervision and Team Development.
Based in Stroud, Gloucestershire, I offer a counselling service working with issues including loss and bereavement, depression, self-confidence, stress, anxiety, relationship issues and socialanxiety. I also work as a psychotherapist and have graduated in Core Process Psychotherapy which combines the compassion and wisdom of Buddhism with the insights of western psychology. Many of us experience problems which are hard to cope with on our own.
I offer: one-to-one short and longer-term Counselling in a confidential and safe place as well as Counselling Supervision, Organisational Consultancy, Training and Mentoring in Bristol/SouthGloucestershire. Counselling can be helpful in dealing with the complex demands of life that we all face, as well as when we just want to make changes.
You may be wondering what counselling involves or whether it is the right help for you, these are questions which are frequently considered and I aim to help answer them here but you are still welcometo contact me if you would like more. Counselling is a therapeutic treatment made by talking through problems with a trained counsellor or in other words a talking therapy.
Are you finding life a struggle? Would you benefit from a place to take some time-out? As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working between Gloucester and Stroud, I offer a safe andconfidential space to explore what is blocking your way to living life more fully. Maybe you are suffering from depression or anxiety. Perhaps there are difficulties in your relationships. Stress, family breakdown, and unemployment, are examples of the painful challenges that many of us face these days.
More than ever people are recognising the need to explore difficult feelings with a professional therapist. Whilst the prevalence of mental health difficulties such as anxiety and depression isbecoming more accepted, acknowledging that there is a problem can be a very hard thing to do. For many people, coming to the decision to ask for help is not easy.
Psychotherapy provides a space to get to know ourselves better, to explore and make sense of the things we do. In psychotherapy we are able to identify areas which have become stuck and confused andlook into the ways in which repeated patterns from the past may be impacting your present concerns and feelings. Often we are not aware of the way our habits and ideas about the world and who we are colour and shape our experience.
Psychotherapy offers a neutral, safe and confidential space to explore all kinds of mental, emotional and psychological difficulties you may be experiencing in your life. It is an unusual and in manyways unique opportunity and environment, suited to explore both your problems and your potential in life. Psychotherapy allows for a deep exploration of life themes, and a chance to be understood and to understand yourself more truly and more clearly.
