I work in Stroud and Cirencester integrating energy psychology into my humanistic practice.
I hold the view that given the right environment every human being can flourish and I aim to foster a relationship in which growth can occur.I work with individual adults suffering from depression or dissatisfaction with their lives from a variety of causes. I have considerable experience of working with people who have suffered trauma, both single episodes of major trauma and more persistent ongoing trauma such as may occur in childhood including sexual abuse. Sometimes parents have not been deliberately cruel but have been unable to meet their child's needs and low self-esteem can be the result affecting many areas of a person's life.
My previous career was that of a GP and I am experienced in working with those who have been diagnosed with chronic or life-threatening diseases and/or their carers.
Having worked with refugees I am used to working with inter-cultural and racial issues and I am also interested in helping professionals such as doctors, nurses teachers and social workers reflect on their emotional load and thus prevent burn-out.
