I offer both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy so you can explore the issues, experiences, thoughts and feelings that are affecting your life. Speaking about what is difficult is the beginning of feeling better. Core Process Psychotherapy combines the wisdom and compassion of Buddhism with Western approaches to psychology. This compassionate and relational approach emphasises our wholeness, and our inherent resilience and balance - however hidden these qualities may sometimes seem.
Our life experiences have shaped us in unique and particular ways and opening towards what has been difficult requires kindness and compassion if we are to heal and grow. While therapy may 'take time', it is in the here and now that we learn to work with the difficulties of our lives, and this is where healing happens.
I work with anxiety, depression, trauma, sexuality, anger and all kinds of relationship challenges in a warm and supportive manner. Bringing awareness to our habitual patterns and defences allows us to begin to start untangling our feelings and thoughts about our lives and the situations we face.
We all have the capacity to grow and even the deepest wounds can be healed. Working with an experienced therapist who can help you understand your experience can be profoundly healing. I can help you relax patterns of tension and stress to find greater clarity and calm so that you can live your life more fully.
I work in Oxford, Milton Keynes and online via Skype/Zoom.
