Having a background as an Reiki energy healer/intuitive, I love to bring these elements into my counselling practice. I work in a way which promotes self compassion, patience and tolerance as I strongly believe these qualities help to identify and erode internal conflict and criticism. I really value building strong bonds with my clients, and seek to enter their worlds as fully as possible, as I know from receiving therapy myself that feeling heard, understood and having someone emotionally resonate with you are vital for building trust.

Having developed a strong intuitive capacity and energetic sensitivity through my Reiki practice I can offer energetic healing and insight alongside counselling if desired, as we verbally explore whatever issues feel most pertinent to you. This can be achieved remotely, as well as face to face. Though for the meantime I am afraid I will only be offering the former due to the current virus restrictions.

I like to work with different parts of our selves- identifying the characteristics which define each aspect of the self and how they rise to the surface in response to certain situations in our lives. In doing so I wish to support the retrieval and integration of parts which may have been rejected, dissociated or fragmented due to traumatic experiences.

I also offer hypnotherapy, which can be a powerful tool in helping to reprogram the subconscious mind; allowing us to transform unwanted patterns and access information or memory otherwise inaccessible to the conscious awareness.
