How I Work
Having a foundational training in Gestalt Therapy
provides a solid underpinning to my work.
My other training in Ericksonian Hypnosis, BWRT (Brain Working Recursive Therapy) Emotional Freedom Technique, Group Work & Reiki
expands how I can be with my clients in a unique, unconventional
and flexible way.
The people who are drawn to working with me are often open individuals
who themselves have a yearning to explore beyond the confines of
They are ready to allow their unfolding and explore newness.
I work relationally which means that through the use of
Awareness, Dialogue & Support in the Here and Now,
it is possible to break out of old ways of being
and create new opportunities for growth and connection.
I have been described as 'solid, intuitive, grounded, direct and challenging'.
As well as 'gentle, compassionate, insightful and safe'.
supportive, aware, ethical with clear boundaries.
I welcome your call and after a brief discussion I will be able to tell you if I feel I am the best fit for you. I am always open to recommending other skilled therapists
if I believe you would be better served through working with another.
I am committed to working with people who are committed to their process.
I host local Women's Circles that are a closed Circle for 4 weeks
covering many deep and explorative topics.
These Circles provide a safe place for women to relate to each other and themselves
with the support of each other and myself.
We dive deep with open heartedness, curiosity and response-ability.
Contact me at Wild Circle on Facebook for more details.
