Welcome to my therapy practice
As an ADMP registered Dance Movement Psychotherapist, I offer my clients a private, relaxed and informal space, where we can work together in confidence about any troubling issues they may be experiencing. Often words aren’t enough to explain all that what we feel, especially when we don’t know what is at the root of our painful emotions. At times, we are too overwhelmed by our thinking, and we feel stuck and unable to move forward. My approach to helping you to help you shift perspective involves working with your unique mind and body connection to take your whole experience into account. I am a conscientious therapist who works in-depth with clients to address communication difficulties, conscious and unconscious patterns, and defences that prevent them from experiencing their relationships and wellbeing to the fullest and their authentic selves.
Common reasons men, women and young people come for private sessions with me include:
- Experiencing anxiety, stress, rumination and self-blame
- Coping with depression
- Low self-confidence and adverse life events
- Issues concerning personal development, relationships and fulfilment
- Bereavement and loss
- Work-related difficulties
- Psychosomatic illnesses
- Trauma and childhood neglect
- Personal development and exploring identity issue; including race, cultural and social-political connection with the world.
I have particular experience in the areas of:
- Working with young people, children and parents, especially those with neurodiverse conditions including dyslexia, autism, ADHD, dyspraxia and other neurological, learning and/or sensory challenges.
- Stress or living with health problems (e.g. burn out, ME, fibromyalgia, back pain, menopause symptoms)
- Workplace performance anxiety and stress management
- Emotional disturbance (e.g. unable to process grief, express anger, blocked emotions)
- Mentoring and coaching body awareness for individuals, groups and organisations
- Problems with communication -finding words that express what is going on within oneself
- Difficulties with connecting to oneself or body image – including the relationship with food/eating
- Existential problems and coping with life transitions- becoming a mother, parenthood, postnatal depression, divorce, loss of self or direction
- Working with professional performers (speakers, artists, dancers, musician and actors)
I also work with individuals and with organisations for approaches to wellbeing and mental health awareness with staff members and aa a coach, mentor and facilitator on wider organisational issues.
Before you decide to begin therapy, you may have some questions about what the process might entail or how it might help you. Since evidence suggests that it is the relationship between you and your therapist that has one of the most significant impacts on the success of the work you do in healing. Please feel welcome to book a free 15 min consultation via telephone, and we can have a short conversation prior to you thinking about booking a session. You can also read my blog for information about Dance Movement Psychotherapy.
I also offer (by request) an online practice that is accessible for people with mobility difficulties, or for those who find it difficult to attend sessions in person.
