How we’ll work together

  • I’ll work collaboratively with you, using your ideas about change and/or healing, rather than me imposing some other idea or theory on you.
  • I’ll work hard to make sure you feel safe, heard, understand and respected.
  • Rather than focusing on what’s ‘wrong’ with you, I’ll help you to heal from difficulties, losses and/or traumas you may have experienced.
  • I’ll help you to focus on the here and now, rather than having anxiety about the future or sadness/guilt about the past.
  • Where possible, we can work to find meaning in things that have happened to you, and to explore a greater purpose for your life.
  • Rather than focusing on labels or diagnoses, we will try to focus on your strengths, capabilities, resources, natural problem solving ability.

Self care and how I keep myself healthy

  • Happily married since 1997
  • Animal lover (2 orange cats)
  • Have played and performed classical guitar since 1972.
  • Considerable time in nature: Hiking, skiing and mountaineering.

I hope you find these recordings peaceful and relaxing.
