I am a person centred and humanistic therapist with a great respect for life and I do appreciate how difficult it can be to take that first step in contacting me.
Dance movement Psychotherapy
Dance Movement Psychotherapy is for you, especially if you have a sense of knowing that with your words alone you are unable to fully communicate your feelings and experiences
Dance Movement Psychotherapy is the psycho-therapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive and physical integration of the person. It is focused on movement behaviour as it emerges in the therapeutic relationship. One of the four Arts Therapies, Movement Psychotherapy is a form of therapy that bridges body and mind and uses both words and movement to enable more authentic communication.
Bringing the soul and the spirit back to life are fundamental aims of this form of therapy too where the emphasis is on re-finding the roots of yourself and your spirit inside your own body.
"Returning to the body is a serious matter, because when we feel the body we begin to sense our vulnerability and our need for others, our ontology of interdependence"
Jill Hayes 2013

Counselling can help you through talking about your feelings in safety and confidence and clarify for you where you are stuck in your life and find life-flourishing solutions. A talking therapy that can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. There are different approaches to counselling but it is the therapeutic relationship that is more important and ensures a good outcome. So, if you feel safe, accepted, treated with respect and also gently challenged too then you have found the right one.
Perhaps you want to tackle things from your past or try to change things in your life today. Maybe you need help choosing a positive direction and would value the viewpoint of a counsellor or you have or are suffering from a loss of somesort and you need stability and guidance.

Supervision Offers insight into the work you are doing with your clients and helps you be more effective. If you work within a caring profession and find your own emotional welfare is being impacted by the work you do you could benefit from clinical supervision. Having a confidential space to talk about and work through the emotional demands of helping others allows us to maintain our healthy well-being as professionals.
I offer a Person Centred and Integrative practice which allows for a holistic framework where learning and development are a constant flow for both parties within a relationship of partnership, collaboration and Care. Through an integrative practice I am able to intertwine body sense and feelings into supervision and not be led by theory thus being able to support the deepening of knowledge through experience.
The cost is £45 per hour / £40 for students on placement.
