1:1 Counselling & Coaching
When was the last time that someone really listened to you,
without interrupting, or comparing, or telling their own story?
Or to recommend an astrologer/diet/breathing technique ~ a solution, or suggestion that you didn't necessarily want, and most definitely didn't ask for?
It's rare right?
Being seen & heard, with empathy, curiosity, & kindness, by a perceptive listener skilled in the art of good questions, is game changing. We see things we simply couldn't have seen by ourselves, that then activate our innate capacity for self-determination, self-compassion, and positive change.
I've been supporting people on the path of personal growth for over two decades, as a Yoga Teacher & Trainer, mentor, coach & counsellor. At the heart of that work is the remembrance of Self ~ the beauty and wholeness that each of us is at our core, whilst navigating gently and wisely our humanness - the challenges and complexity, messiness and nuance of life in a body, in relationship.
My work is client-centred & trauma-informed, incorporating the therapeutic modalities of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and Gestalt, in combination with Yoga philosophy & the timeless Eastern teachings on the nature of mind and heart.
Areas of special interest include:
Times of change or transition
Grief & loss
Doubt, self-sabotage, self-criticism, & perfectionism
Anxiety &/or depression
Pre & post natal support
Infertility, miscarriage, birth, & menopause
"Listening like that, with compassion, you help him or her to empty their heart... to suffer less.
One hour like that can bring transformation and healing".
