I provide individual support for adults. My approach is informed by Expressive Arts Therapy, Internal Family Systems, sensorimotor approaches, the nervous system, polyvagal theory, attachment theory and trauma-informed therapies. I am currently offering sessions online with the potential to move in-person.
Here are some ways I offer support:
-Helping you get to know parts of yourself and developing a deeper, more compassionate relationship with yourself and others. This can be helpful to deepen your understanding of why the same challenges/behaviours/emotions keep arising, why change can be difficult; understand your own guilt and shame in a less critical or scary way.
-Working with emotions such as depression, stress, hopelessness, anxiety and anger.
-Offering a nonjudgmental, open space where you can share, explore thoughts and ideas.
-Working through life transitions, stress and change.
-Facilitating expressive arts therapy, mindfulness, body-based and self-reflective practices to deepen healing and learning (none of these you need to know, that's why I am here).
