There are times in your life when you may need help in coping with arising difficulties. Perhaps you just want to gain clarity and a new perspective on your work, life and relationships.
Creative people can find themselves beset by anxieties that hold them back in their work. I aim to work in a respectful, supportive manner that provides a space to come to terms with the issues blocking creativity.
Therapy can be both short-term or extended, depending on whether you wish to focus on a specific goal or explore issues that have been troubling you for a long time. Just four or five sessions may be all it takes to clarify some of the problems on your mind.
My counselling training and experience draws particularly on the psychodynamic, humanistic, and existential methods. These are all designed to help you understand and explore your own situation. My focus is to work together in the present while exploring experiences from the past that may be contributing to your anxieties.
My aim is to use an integrative approach to short-term and long-term counselling, drawing on the best techniques available to help strengthen your insight and self-belief in facing the challenges of life.
I am a registered counsellor and group facilitator, with over twenty years experience working with people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. I have also worked in the arts as an arts manager, editor, publisher and journalist and remain a practicing sculptor.
