Overwhelmed? Stuck? Procrastinating? Trouble with organisation, planning and prioritising. Struggling to get things done? Difficulty with time management? These are some ways in which ADHD manifests. It is often accompanied with other conditions such as anxiety, low self-esteem, and feelings of shame and blame. Additionally, unhelpful coping strategies may follow.

Come home to yourself. Allow the mind to calm and the body to soften and release. Who are you underneath the noise of the world?  What needs to be heard today and on what level? For over 25 years, I have assisted people in profound transformation through bodywork and psychotherapy. As I am trained in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy, the Alexander Technique and Craniosacral Therapy, my work can help to identify and resolve pain and discomfort, whether manifesting in the body, mind, or more usually a combination of both. Where, after all, do your thoughts and feelings occur if not in the body?

Life is hard and full of unsuspected challenges. Often the more we journey toward where we want to go, the bumpier the road gets. The impact of past experiences, present stressors, and worries about the future threaten to keep us stuck in an unhelpful loop. We repeat old, conditioned patterns and behaviours simply because we're on autopilot and maybe haven't had the space to reflect. By increasing our awareness, bringing our attention to the present, detaching from old stories, and focusing on what's helpful we make meaningful choices.

Knowing what is the best thing to say or do to help our children thrive, is not always easy... If you find yourself getting stressed out or overwhelmed in parenting, you are not alone. I support mothers, parents and families to find their flow, be at their best, so everyone is able to feel seen, heard and validated. I specialise in supporting parenting of high energy and high sensitivity children, navigating family relationships, and helping you find freedom from stress, anxiety and burnout. Having over 15 years specialising in children and families, and a parent myself, I take a holistic, intuitive and non judgemental approach.

Would you like to S T O P... and have time to think about where you are. I offer a comfortable space for weekly reflection on 'everything that has happened so far...' You are curious about yourself, maybe with a mild depression, which feels ongoing, and which you have had to manage yourself. We can explore this together, track it back and discover the origins. We will see the shadows this casts over your life today. You will come to see that a good life and hope are possible; as well as accepting the past and what has been lost.

I work integratively, my training was in existential psychotherapy. This means I believe that life is naturally going to present struggles and that we need to navigate our way through life's givens: loneliness, anxiety and death are all givens of our life. I believe that the goal of therapy is to create space to reflect and align oneself with one's values and understand our limitations. I believe that trauma has a lasting impact on our bodies and minds, and that through understanding the mind-body connection, healing can ultimately take place. I currently hold a post working in GP practices with the NHS.

A warm welcome. Life at times feels very overwhelming. Whatever the issue, I can help you to create a life that you want to live in and not want to escape from. When we feel vulnerable, we sometimes look externally to try to feel better, inappropriate relationships, compulsive behaviours, overeating, overspending, drinking and substance misuse, only to feeling further lost and confused. I can offer you the space and tools to listen to yourself and your needs, in order to develop confidence, clarity and a sense of control over your life. I can facilitate the journey of you becoming your own person.
