Specialist orientation:

Work best with folk addressing physical disability or more high functioning people on the autistic spectrum or other mental health issues.

  • Pursuing satisfaction and fulfilment in the context of physical and psychological challenges.
  • Supporting clients in developing and maintaining healthy supportive relationships.
  • Encouraging folk to explore where their passions and enthusiasm ignites, and how to express them more productively.
  • Dealing with emotions which may inhibit their sense of well-being - including anger, frustration, disappointment and sadness.
  • Where appropriate, providing a Sex Positive framework for clients to pursue fulfilment in this area of their lives.
  •  Working with people who have had negative experience from previous service provision, regarding their psychological and/or emotional wellbeing.
  •  Navigating complex needs both within the individual and in a cultural context. Insightful, Creative & Effective:

Insightful: I believe “the more awareness you have, the better choices you can make”.

Creative: Process work encourages a creative approach, exploring what is useful more than following prescribed pathways. While much of our work is dydactic, it can include drawing, movement and sound - providing information from less-habitual elements of communication than the more conventional “talking cure”. This approach can lead to excellent outcomes, particularly in dealing with clients with complex needs.

Effective: Client-centred in framing areas of focus, and ensuring the therapeutic alliance is maintained throughout. I work with a 10-session model, which allows for review of goals and outcomes. This can apply to both short and long-term clients.

Call me to discuss your clients’ needs and whether my experience and training is aligned to the pursuit of their chosen goals and intentions.

I have trained extensively in relation to power and marginallisation, which can help in strengthening self-esteem and confidence.
