About Bridge Counselling and Psychotherapy
I can help you to improve the quality of your life.
I believe that all behaviour serves a purpose. Sometimes, however, our behaviours do not create the best outcomes for us and can cause us to feel anxious, depressed, unsatisfied or to have difficulties in our relationships, work, school and life. Using an integrated approach, I can help to free you from behavioural patterns that are no longer serving you well and help you make positive change for the future.
I offer a safe, warm, empathic and non-judgmental environment in which you can explore your personal circumstances and draw on your own wealth of internal and external resources to heal, problem-solve and develop.
For clients who find it hard to express themselves through spoken language, I use creative and play therapy to enable expression and communication.
In addition to traditional counselling, I offer Emotional and Physical Journeywork. This approach uses guided meditation to enable clients to strip away layers of emotions that have been stored in their bodies over the years, causing both emotional and physical blocks. Journeywork sessions are longer than traditional counselling, but clients typically require fewer sessions. I provide Emotional Journeywork for children and adults.
I completed a BSc(Hons) in Psychology in 2001, using this within organisations, helping business to get the best form their employees and helping employees to get the best from their working environment. After 22 years within business, I decided to formalise my counselling skills.
I balance voluntary work with children (through Place2Be and Blythe House) and adults (Blythe House) alongside my private practice.
