How are you? That’s a question that gets asked a lot but it’s often more of a statement, a greeting than an actual question. Most people don’t even stop for the response and if they do they’re often too busy thinking about what they want to say, rather than listening to what’s being said. It’s no wonder then that we often stop asking ourselves that question too.

If you’re ready to stop and answer that question, then I’m here to listen and to hear what you have to say. Even if right now, you don’t have the words or you just don’t know what to say… we can start with the question and go from there.

About me:
I’m a qualified therapeutic counsellor, coach, NLP practitioner and facilitator who uses a compassion-based approach, drawing on various humanistic theories to support clients to find their own way. I have worked for many years in educational and therapeutic settings and can offer counselling, coaching and group work options to anyone above the age of 16.

Counselling, Coaching and how we can work together:
I understand how your mental health can impact on your physical health and so my approach is holistic to support your wellbeing, not just now, but to equip you with tools to protect it for the future. My experience working for agencies and charities that offer holistic approaches means that I have seen the benefit of not just offering talking therapy but being open to working creatively too. I have seen the impact that struggling with trauma has not just on the mind but also the body. When we work together, I will support you to re-establish the lines of communication between your head and your heart and support you to find your own way to experience your life with more compassion for yourself. I will work with you to understand how you experience the world, what supports you and what challenges you, drawing not just on your mind’s insights but also the wisdom of your body too. We will look at the ways you can support your mental health and promote positive coping strategies to maintain your wellbeing.

Through my private practice; heartspace, I offer you space and time away from the treadmill of everyday life, where you can take off your other hats and just be you.

I offer therapeutic counselling, compassion-based coaching or a blended approach, to support you to experience whole hearted living. This means being able to fully engage in your life, with those around you, with your environment and most importantly with yourself.
