I have a passion for helping people discover their potential and become all that they can be; to be fully alive; to be in charge of their lives, free to make the most of today and to direct their path into the future. I also know how difficult that can be.
The struggles and problems of today are often the result of how we were taught to think, feel and behave during childhood. Toxic parenting can cause massive damage to this process, even leading to developmental trauma. Even relatively good parenting can leave us interacting with others and with the world in ways that are unhelpful, damaging or self-limiting. Psychotherapy (from the Greek for "soul healing") is a process of undoing any distorted learning so that you can be in charge of your life. When current issues are not rooted in the past, therapy can also help to fully resolve problems so that you do not get stuck and are able to move forward.
Body psychotherapy is deep transformative therapy. It does not simply address what is going on right now, but also why - the past as it manifests in the present. Working with both mind and body, it challenges you to look at the roots of who you are and supports you in a process of change. If you wish to focus more on the body and less on the psychological roots, you might also consider transformative bodywork

Below are some possible way of working; they are not different methods, but simply a different focus that reflects particular needs you might have. What is best for you is something we would discuss during our initial consultation (which is free of charge).
