I’m an integrative counsellor. That means I use a variety of different techniques and tools to suit your personality type and circumstances. I take a flexible approach to your therapy, be it meditative, creative or goal-led – or all of these at different times. I work with professional understanding, empathy, warmth and humour – within a holistic framework and a safe, supportive environment.
My first contact with clients is usually a chat over the phone, by e-mail or text. This helps me understand why you are considering counselling, and I explain what may be involved. There’s no obligation at this stage – in fact our first session will be free – but if you want to carry on, we will agree a time and place to meet for your next session.
Presently I am working in a mobile capacity on the island, and I also have my own counselling room in my home near Blackwaterfoot.
I provide individual and group sessions in my clients’ homes, workplaces or in public spaces such as schools and village halls. For clients with disabilities, I am of course happy to come to you.
I have recently started to offer 4/5 day residential therapeutic/creative breaks in my home on this beautiful island, tailored to your requirements; whether you are stuck, or need to find out what you want in your life, or learn to let go of negative behaviours – or you might just want peace and tranquility, good food and sleep, making and writing!
