Counsellor / Hypnotherapist

Integrative, psychotherapeutic, somatic


Are you questioning the ways you manage life and your reactions to it? Perhaps you are struggling with a specific issue, or just have a general sense that things aren't working as well as they could. Work with me to explore how you can be empowered to shape your life in the way you really want.

Counselling can help you explore your life and the way you think and feel about your experiences in a safe and understanding therapeutic relationship. My approach is Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling that draws mainly on the following therapeutic models. Person-Centred therapy is based on the principle that you already have the capacity to self-heal. Psychodynamic principles examine how your past experiences have shaped your personal outlook. Somatic therapy explores the relationship between mind and body, and how working with your body can help to process unresolved emotions and traumas.

Hypnotherapy can help you explore and change your underlying emotions and beliefs by working with your inner world and your habitual nervous system reactions. Deactivate the fight-or-flight stress/anxiety response for deep relaxation. Cultivate an inner sense of safety and strength. Explore and update automatic negative emotions and thoughts. Determine what you really want from your current life circumstances. Establish realistic strategies and responses that inspire you. Experience a more loving and accepting relationship with yourself.

I'm passionate about providing a safe and supportive space where you can feel you really matter. My focus is on accepting you just as you are, appreciating how you came to your current situation and encouraging you to be true to yourself. In the experience of being met and understood, it's easier to discover what you really want and need, to work through the things that hold you back and make the choices that are right for you.
