My interest is in your Personal Development, Self Awareness and Self Actualisation.

 

I am a Woman who has undergone much of my own searching into personal development and awareness and so bring my experience, knowledge and learning to all that I do.  For me Therapy is a place of acceptance, value and non judgement. Where I am of equal status no matter what I chose to talk about.  I have personally experienced this and now offer it to you. It is a beautiful and powerful thing to receive.

 

I hold a private practice based in Brixham tending to specialise in Relationships, Bereavement & loss, domestic violence & abuse. Although choosing to work with other concerns also.

 

I am also employed by Torbay & Southern Devon Care Trust within the carers emotional support scheme. I work with unpaid carers, offering a wide variety of emotional support to include anxiety, self esteem and reclaiming a sense of who they are within a caring role.

 

I  offer workshops, meditation, courses and talks around Personal Development, raising your Self Awareness and Self Actualisation.

 

I have a vast personal experience of working with personal development and awareness which spans over thirty years. My main working background was in Health and Social Care for much of that time. To include experience of various client groups, such as mature adults with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, also people with physical disabilities.

 

I have been actively counselling since 2001 and all services I offer are something that I will have experienced personally at some time. I am then able to relate my experience of that when a client shares their experience with me.

 

Some of the models I draw on within my work are Mindfulness, Core Process, Gestalt, Person Centred, and Cognitive Behavioural models in counselling and psychotherapy and mainly Inskipp and Proctor for Supervision. I tend to adapt my work to suit each client or supervisee and their individual needs at the time.

I nourish myself by ensuring a constant balance in life, I enjoy swimming, meditation, walking in the outdoors, reading, cooking, gardening, writing, socialising and dancing.

 

I firmly believe in continuing my own development in all areas of life and attend workshops and courses which assist my own way of working in being fresh and current.
