"We cannot live in a world interpreted for us by others.  An interpreted world is not home.  Part of the terror is to take back our own listening.  To use our own voice.  To see our own light."
Hildegard of Bingen

Coming to see me you can expect a confidential place where what you need to speak about will be heard with care. How you get started and how things proceed is very different for each individual, there is no wrong way.  

You will have the opportunity to explore your current situation and past history. If things have been difficult, taking time to talk this through is often a relief and valuable. This might be all the support you need.

You might be interested in looking beneath surface concerns.  To ‘see through’ to areas of life or into feelings you have previously neglected or into that place that you know troubles you.  This is where it can help to enter the realm of the imaginal.  We would work with your dreams, we would use story, images and responses in your body. You start to look for signs that reveal your inner landscape and you begin to make your ‘shadow’ conscious. The shadow is all those things, both good and bad, that have been repressed or never been conscious. 

I work with an integrative approach that helps you to become more consciously aware of your complexes and your strengths. The relationship between us will also play a part in the therapeutic process.  

You will experience a deepening connection between your conscious mind and the wisdom of the unconscious.  Although outer circumstances might possibly stay the same something different will happen in you.  Finding your way, your path of individuation, you will draw upon the sources within yourself for greater meaning and understanding.  Working from this place, you can expect guidance, nourishment and renewal or acceptance.

The list below includes some of the areas that I have worked with:

  • Uncertainty in life, being at a crossroads and general loss of direction and meaning
  • Burnout, stress, anxiety including eco-anxiety
  • Depression, loneliness, feelings of loss, bereavement and illness
  • Eating disorders & other addictive behaviours
  • Thresholds and life transitions (leaving home, midlife, menopause, retirement and end of life)
  • Relationship problems, conflict and betrayal
  • Parenting concerns   
  • Issues relating from sexual, psychological and physical abuse
  • Anger, shame and self-esteem issues
  • Disappointment and high expectations 
  • Issues around creativity and motivation
  • All dreams, particularly those which seem troubling or significant
  • The process of individuation - becoming oneself
