More about Across the Sands

My first therapy training was in Person-Centred Therapy. This means that I believe that offering an accepting, understanding, and genuine relationship is the foundation for enabling others to grow in their own way and come to self-acceptance. I offer deep, still, spacious listening and acceptance of every feeling, thought, or habit that people communicate to me.

I am told that I have the ability to make people feel heard and accepted, and to experience their own worth in new ways. I have opened up to my own suffering and pain over the last 20 years, and feel that this gives me a deep capacity to be with the suffering of others, whatever it is.

I also have Masters level training in mindfulness, compassion-focused therapy, and bereavement, as well as training in Cognitive Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. I work with anyone from 16, and was a troubled teen and feel that I connect naturally with teenagers and young adults.

Key information

I work on a pay as you can basis, with a suggested sliding scale of £20-£45, and can offer sessions any day of the week depending on my overall number of clients.

I resist the 'normal' therapist expectation for weekly 50 minute sessions unless this is the arrangement that most suits the person, and so can be as flexible as possible in terms of frequency, duration, etc.

I am insured to work globally and can practice via Zoom, telephone, or email.
