Therapy is a collaboration that allows space for growth.
A session offers a space for you to safely explore whatever is there to be explored or understood. Sessions are confidential and there is no expectation or judgment to allow a natural process to unfold. I will listen and support you to communicate your feelings in a way that is comfortable for you. Therapeutic work may be short-term or over a longer period of time. I am now also offering sessions online Zoom or on the telephone. Contact me for more information or to book an appointment. No obligation to commit at the beginning.
Individual sessions support a dialogue in the moment to moment experience. Individual sessions may use props that promote a movement dialogue, creative and or verbal ways of relating.
I am an Integrative Body-Oriented Psychotherapist with the view that there is no single approach to suit all. My therapeutic practice is informed by a range of therapeutic modalities including sensorymotorpsychotherapy, Arts Therapies (dance/movement, music, drama, art), Eco-Psychotherapy, Transpersonal, Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Solution Focussed.
Registered with ADMP UK Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) UK. DMP is a relational and creative process that recognises body movement as an implicit and expressive instrument of communication. ADMP UK is an organisational member of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and follows their ethical code of conduct.
I have extensive experience working creatively in the health and wellbeing profession with adults, children, young people, families, parents, carers and professionals for over 10 years. I believe in the innate wisdom within our bodies and that we have resources within ourselves to flourish.
