How can I help?
We all need support in our lives during difficult times. It is in our human nature to reach out for help and a healthy step towards our survival and growth. I appreciate that it is not an easy thing to do, but it is important not to suffer alone. I hope to be able to offer you support with whatever you are experiencing, such as feeling:
overwhelmed by stress at work, home or university;
exhausted by a constant battle with negative thoughts and emotions;
bereaved by the separation or loss of a loved one;
anxious or angry after illness, neglect, trauma or abuse; or
unsettled by a deep need or fear of change.

Core Process Psychotherapy
Core Process Psychotherapy helps people connect with their body and mind and work towards easing the impact that stress, depression and anxiety can have on them. This combines Western psychotherapy and neurobiology with Eastern mindfulness practice. By bringing attention to emotions and sensations in the body and observing our thoughts, we can learn more about our deeply held beliefs, drives and defensive habits, and how they shape our daily experience and relationships with others and ourselves.
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
The benefits of giving yourself regular time to explore your personal issues can be profound. It can lead to greater self-awareness, acceptance and compassion; a calmer and more balanced approach to life; and ultimately the freedom and confidence to fulfil your potential. It may, over time, help to release draining tension and emotions (assisting in relieving pain and improving sleep and underlying health), and ease the burden of deeply held trauma, abuse or neglect.
