Announcement icon Face to face sessions have stopped for the time being. I am currently holding online sessions, e.g. Zoom, and phone sessions.
Although all clients are welcome, I specialise in counselling adults and young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Condition and Specific Learning Difficulties, e.g. dyslexia. I have been working with neurodiverse adults for over thirty years, first as a teacher, then as an assessor, and now also as a counsellor. Although obtaining a diagnosis can bring relief, people often have many painful memories of school days and work, of relationships, and of not understanding and being misunderstood. Life can seem complex and confusing and sometimes who we are and what we want can get lost along the way.
I am an integrative counsellor mainly using person-centred and gestalt approaches and I am trained to listen to what is said and what is not said with sustained warmth and attention. My aim is to help clients explore and understand what is going on for them, let go of self-limiting beliefs, make helpful changes, and be comfortable within themselves.
As well as talking therapy, I offer sandplay. Although some talking occurs, the emphasis is on non-verbal communication. Using miniature objects, clients create small worlds which may reflect inner thoughts, struggles and hopes. Looking at this inner world manifest in the sand can bring awareness and acceptance, and often a clearer way forward.
