stop smoking, Depression Counselling, Counselling And Psychotherapy
Having lived and worked in London for over twenty years, in 1995 I moved back to North Devon to bring up my children in my home town of Ilfracombe. Living with the sea in an area so abundant in natural beauty, I feel blessed. I have experience of being employed in various settings including social work and employee counselling, I have worked as a self-employed psychotherapist part time for thirty years. In 2011 I became full time. Living in North Devon has given me a strong connection to the magic of the earth and the wisdom it holds. I have learnt that healing and well-being comes from our relationship to the earth and I see that so many of the problems we experience in our society come from having lost this relationship. Over time we have allowed ourselves to be parasites on the earth taking from it. By becoming the guardians of the earth and honouring its gifts we find balance. Making the decision to seek help from a therapist can be a vital first step in making changes. Talking to someone outside of your life who is trained to listen, reflect and observe is very likely to leave you looking differently at your world. I have over thirty years of experience of working as a therapist which has taught me that counselling and psychotherapy offer creative solutions, mobilizing our own strengths and courage to change. Talking things through and exploring together is at the core of my work. I offer a safe environment and come to my work with respect and admiration for those who have decided to seek help. I work to a code of ethics as laid down by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy; I am on their national register of Psychotherapists. I am on a spiritual path and this is integrated into my work and my life. A spiritual approach to change is something I can offer but this is not part of the sessions I offer routinely; my professional expertise is as a psychotherapist.
