I offer music psychotherapy and mindfulness-based counselling to support clients who may be experiencing issues such as emotional challenges, life transitions, health issues or the impact of past traumas. I specialise in Guided Imagery and Music, which offers the opportunity to listen to music in a relaxed state, and draws on inner strengths and resources including imagery and embodiment work. I am also a qualified mindfulness teacher and integrate mindfulness practices into my work. Clients may wish to feel a greater sense of agency in their lives, explore their spirituality and a sense of meaning, or resolve past issues.
