TALKING THERAPY

Being listened to and talking about your feelings and experiences with a trained therapist can help you find your own answers. Some people worry about not having something to ‘say’ silence is part of the therapeutic process. I offer this service face to face, online or by phone.  

WALKING THERAPY

Walking and being outdoors is an alterative to the traditional talking therapy. Being outdoors can feel less formal and more relaxed bringing movement into the session. 

CREATIVE THERAPY

We will use colour and drawing materials, allowing you to express and explore your emotions through the creative process. We look to the old masters, painters and illustrators as well as children’s story books for inspiration. You do not need to be an experienced artist to access this therapy.
