Get the professional support you need, when, how, where, and in the way you need it.....

Solution focused therapy and counselling...

Hello, thank you for taking the time to visit my website.

Are you struggling with anxiety, trauma, loss, bereavement, your general mental health, or relationship issues? Are you looking to make a long lasting change? Are you looking for new ways of thinking, new tools for understanding yourself and your relationships? Are you or your partner neurodivergent?

I am here to help you, my approach to counselling is holistic, experiential, mindful,  transpersonal, and reflective. Together we will explore the present moment against the backdrop and influence of your past, looking at your shadow side, and explore the control of your subconscious.

 

We will work together to clearly define the challenges and needs of both you and your relationships. Identifying anything that is misunderstood, missing, broken or out of kilter. Opening up opportunities to reset, re-balance, reconfigure, and re-energise, to create for you a compelling future.

I offer a proactive and empathetic approach to counselling, focused on finding solutions and resolutions here and now that will last long into the future.

It takes courage....

I understand and respect the courage it takes and how difficult it can be to seek help for our most intimate relationships especially when they are in crisis or ruptured.

How vulnerable you may feel if perhaps you have suffered betrayal, feel misunderstood, invisible, or unheard. The pain of loss for something you so cherished and held so deeply in your heart.

I am here to help you with new ways of thinking, strategies, exercises, and reflections. You will find me empathetic to your struggles, trustworthy, fair, and candid.

As a qualified mindfulness teacher I have found ways to incorporate mindfulness practice into grounding and enhancing relationships. 

 

Please allow me to show you simple easy to adopt ways of incorporating mindfulness into your daily life. So that you may find your own path to enriching your life, wellbeing, and relationship both with yourself and others.

Self-compassion

What is self-compassion? Loving kindness, an appreciation of our common human experience, a mindful acceptance of who we authentically are.  

It is not feeling sorry for ourselves, weakness, or the thought that we have to accept the we are less than and not good enough. It is empathy for our human experience not sympathy for our perceived faults or failings.  

Humans are innately self-critical, we are all hard wired for negativity, always on the lookout for danger, this is our primal instinct. After all, early humankind was lunch for sabre tooth tigers if it wasn't always on the lookout for danger. 

So, why should we practice self-compassion? In a word "Resilience", by developing our self-compassion we build our resilience, our ability to cope with life's challenges, and in doing so we reduce our sensitivity to anxiety.

But how do we develop self-compassion? In the words of an old Cherokee Indian proverb "We are what we feed." 

 

As the story goes: One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. 

 

He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One wolf is evil, full of anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."

 

"The other wolf is good, full of joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, truth, compassion and faith."

"The same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person too." The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed".
