Not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves.
Henry David Thoreau
I am a qualified accredited therapist using an integrative person centered approach to therapy, with twelve years experience providing nature based therapeutic intervention to individuals and groups. I have five years experience of clinical practice within a medium secure forensic psychiatric hospital, providing patients diagnosed with a range of complex mental health issues, learning disability, autism and those presenting with personality disorder, nature based therapy. I currently work 3 days a week as a Psychological Therapist for the NHS, lecture on counselling practice, and provide clinical supervision.
My practice and therapy room is based at Wath Upon Dearne. I also use space at Rabbit Ings Country Park where I use the natural environment as a therapeutic space to offer a unique psychotherapeutic nature based practice. The natural environment affords a raw and comforting space to connect with and in which to explore your concerns. I base the service that I offer on trust, respect and honesty which I believe are crucial when helping you to explore your feelings, thoughts and emotions. I use a range of therapeutic skills that are appropriate for each individual client or group to help them to gain clarity and insight into a wide range of issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, addiction, trauma, bereavement and improving self esteem and low self worth.
