I'm a native Midlander, nature lover and sensitive human, living and enjoying the waters and landscapes of Somerset. My specialist interests are trauma healing and phenomenological research. I delight in sunsets, folk songs, spiced tea and campfires.
What I do
Coaching & therapy
I facilitate individuals to heal painful thoughts, emotions and psychological processes and reconnect with calm, joy and safety.
I'm humanistic and integrative in my theoretical approach and combine research-based modalities in an embodied, depth relational way. Relationship and 'interbeing' are at the heart of what I do. If you're my client, technically what this means is, I work to support the here-and-now connection between you and me. Together, we can tend to all aspects of your Self, and respond to how past experiences manifest in the present, so you can: complete cycles of healing and respond to opportunities for creative growth in your inner landscape and family/work/life constellations.
Some of the resources I draw on in my practice include mindfulness, existential philosophy, sexology, gestalt, process-oriented psychology, neuroscience and the support of my peers in numerous professional associations. All held in strict confidence.
Who I work with
Many of my coaching and counselling clients are gender, sex and relationship diverse. Being anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive are core to how I work; I ensure my consultancy is accessible to people in all parts of the local community and online. Furthermore, I provide online counselling as part of an international therapy team to LGBTQ+ refugees in Kenya, and also face-to-face and walk-and-talk sessions with people in need of low-cost counselling with Sweet Track Counselling Agency in Glastonbury, UK. My private and confidential consultancy practice is open to all, fully supervised, and referrals are also available.
Transpersonal Coaching & Therapy
I'm a member of the Transpersonal Coaches and Therapists Network, a division of the International Association of Coaches, Therapists and Mentors (IACTM), contributing peer-reviewed practise-based research, and participating in ongoing professional development in the field of spirituality, consciousness and human and social development studies.
