I am an Integrative Counsellor, and I practice this with a person centred focus.  This means I offer different therapeutic approaches, as and when it maybe helpful for you.  However we will focus in the main on where you are, your needs and aims, and what you want to consider.  As we get to know each other, we will build a relationship which will be fundamental to your healing.

For those who want to know more about the therapeutic models that I am trained in, they include psychodynamic therapy, transactional analysis, the human givens approach, mindfulness, moment by moment body awareness, behavioural activation and cognitive behavioural therapy.

I believe it is possible to live life on life’s terms, in quiet awareness with acceptance, flexibility and resilience.  

The name of my website comes from a quote from Bill W, who was a co founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.   In 1958, after years of sobriety and long term depression, he wrote an article in Grapevine (the AA magazine), which ends-

“Nowadays my brain no longer races compulsively in either elation, grandiosity or depression.  I have been given a quiet place in bright sunshine”
