Private Therapy 

I offer a one to one interdisciplinary psychology program to support adults and under 18s which looks different for everyone. After initial contact, case load dependant, we see if what I offer is suitable, we then book a consultation (up to 90 minutes) which takes into account any childhood adversity, diagnoses, neurodiversity, personality types and current mental and physical issues. This is then followed by subsequent sessions that can include:

 Psychodynamic, Somatic Psychotherapy, Neuro-sequential (Bottom-up), Interpersonal, CBT and Advanced CBT, Eclectic (Interdisciplinary), EMDR, Coaching, Sand Tray Therapy, EFT, The Rewind Technique, Inner Child Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Integrative, Jungian, NLP, Meditation & Mindfulness, Menopause, Neurodiversity, Trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences, The Vagus Nerve, Mentoring, Myers-Briggs Personality Types and Cognitive Functioning, Person Centred & Transpersonal.

With the approaches above, I tend to offer ten sessions and then we review – I do not just offer counselling or work with clients long term.

Sand Tray Therapy facilitates us to construct our inner world which acts as a reflection of our own life and allows for space to remove obstacles, become unstuck, communicate, resolve conflicts and gain acceptance of self.  Sand Tray Therapy is powerful yet provides a threat free environment which emphasizes what we experiencing in that moment while being guided by a therapist to facilitate awareness and growth.  Sand Tray Therapy give us an opportunity to communicate non verbally through creative expression we are able to manifest in the sand things we may not otherwise be able to vocalise or address. The world within the sand tray is expressed through symbols and metaphors which help us make sense of our inner world.

************************************** 

Reiki  

I am a Reiki Master Teacher Practitioner and have been working in energy medicine for 20 years. Reiki addresses you as a whole, rather than targeting individual symptoms.  It can create subtle but meaningful shifts from deep within your own being. On the outside looking in, a Reiki treatment might appear to be merely a series of hand placements but it works to restore balance on the deepest possible level, which may result in the resolution of some health problems, a change in beliefs and attitudes, the ability to make decision that have been put off or ignored and the realisation of one’s true values and priorities in life.  

Aimed at restoring balance on all levels Reiki addresses the problem and condition rather than simply masking or relieving symptoms.  It creates deep relaxation that helps the body release stress and tension bringing a sense of peace and calm whilst allows you to connect to your body as a whole and access your inner wisdom. Reiki dissolves energy blocks and encourages a natural balance between mind, body and spirit. Regular treatments help build up resilience to stress. It can also be used to heal mental or emotional wounds, alleviate panic, fear, frustration,  anger, guilt and trauma. Because we spend a lot of time in fight/flight mode, Reiki reminds our physical body how to engage with our parasympathetic nervous system in order to create a calm self-healing mode which helps the body cleanse itself from toxins while aiding the immune system. 

£60 per session – 1 hour

 The Wellness Gateway CIC which is a community interest company. 

In 2021 I founded a community non-profit wellness organisation for adults and children, allowing people to access a safe space regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, disability or wealth.  We help people who need support in improving their emotional, physical and mental health along with trauma care and neurodiversity support. It is a tiny organisation trying to help people find a purpose and to be able to connect with their local community again.
