I am trained in a transpersonal/integrative model of therapy, I work in a relational style and believe that everything has relevance in the therapeutic relationship. I am interested in why someone chooses to come to therapy that moment, and what the background patterns in their life and the lives of their ancestors, that get continually replayed, in both the relationship with the self and the relationship with others.
I enjoy my work, it excites me and allows me to spend all day being curious about people, which I have done overtly for about eighteen years. I work from an office that has a little garden, and my dog is often there with me, he is a source of love and support for many clients, but also is able to be on his own when clients don't feel comfortable with dogs. (My cat sometimes joins us too). I have weekly supervision with a clinical supervisor as well as peer supervision, which hopefully allows me to keep my feet on the ground and replenishes me to help me to stay available for the work. I very much believe in our connection to nature and as my office sits firmly between nature and the commercial world, in a sense straddles my beliefs nicely!
