In order to support my clients to the very best of my ability and meet individual needs, I hold various qualifications in further holistic and psychological therapies offering a range of talking therapies details outlined below. I attend regular training and frequent continued professional development.
Should you prefer a more solution-based directive approach, Coaching may be for you. Coaching is beneficial to anyone aspiring to reach specific goals or life changes but in need of some help & assistance to figure out exactly what the goal/ change is and/or how to get there. A typical example would be uncertainty around a career change or similar. Together we can discuss the advantages and disadvantages and work out an action plan in order to attain and meet specific goals or changes. In short, my goal is to guide you in reaching yours in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible.
Nutrition and Wellbeing
I am a certified Nutritionist, Well-being and Weight Management Coach with The National School of Nutrition. I facilitate Mood and Food training as well as offering this additional support on a one on one basis. A healthy life style is key to not only maintaining good physical health but also balancing emotional health and well-being. Well-being Consultation is designed to equip clients with coping strategies to improve overall physical and emotional well-being. A great starting point for those wanting to make lasting changes to their lives.
Mindfulness and Meditation
I hold a Diploma in Mindfulness and Meditation and may incorporate relaxation techniques in our sessions. Practising Mindfulness and Meditation can have positive effects on both our emotional and physical well-being. It is an extremely efficient technique for stress management. Taking up the practice of mindfulness and mediation on a regular basis will go far beyond stress reduction and has many deep psychological advantages.
Gestalt Psychology Dip.
Gestalt is a highly positive and practical integrative therapeutic approach. Using Gestalt we can learn to focus on your immediate thoughts, feelings and behaviour and to gain insight of ourselves and better understand the way we relate to others. This increased awareness can help people to find a new perspective.
Inner Child Healing Dip.
Inner Child Healing therapy sessions are useful for people who have a specific childhood issue they wish to explore and address through structured therapy sessions, with the focus being on healing those issues.

Advanced Shadow Work Psychology Dip.
In Jungian psychology, the shadow refers to an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself, i.e. everything of which a person is not fully conscious. In short, the shadow is the unknown side, the darker aspects of our personality. To fully accept ourselves we need to accept all elements of self. Understanding these archetypes can help us find balance in life.
These techniques and therapies may be incorporated in my sessions should we both feel this be beneficial to the therapy process however should you feel any of the above services would solely be of interest to you, I am more than happy to discuss this and provide further information and details on request.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch.
I am a member of The International Alliance of Holistic Therapies, fully qualified and insured to practice all services I offer.
