At times, we can find it difficult to connect with those closest to us or even with ourselves. Traumatic events, change, loss and ongoing stress can lead us to feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, irritated, confused or low and lacking in motivation. If this resonates with you, I provide a confidential space in which you can express, explore and reflect on your experience without blame or judgement. I work with calm compassion and gentle curiosity. By supporting you to enhance self awareness and develop self acceptance, you can move towards more satisfying, life-affirming, choices and connections.

'I just want to be free from my anxiety.' 'I hate my body and will never be happy with my true self.'  Maybe it's crippling anxiety where you're fearful of every situation, whether it's the now or related to a past trauma. Perhaps you lack confidence in body & self, disliking yourself and feeling like you don't know who you are which causes you to be afraid to be your true self. Perhaps it's attachment patterns in relationships, fear of trusting due to being let down & abandoned, the terror of ending up hurt and alone. Well, I can help. After all, Tom, Dick or Harry telling us that 'It'll be okay' is well meaning but does it help?

The beauty of working this way is that we look at the whole experience, understanding the root of the problem will be influenced by psychology, emotions, the physical body along with their history, culture and family experiences. Often when we find ourselves struggling in life, we are repeating old unhealthy learnings which are buried deeply in the unconscious and play out when we find ourselves challenged or triggered.
