Where possible I work creatively with nature. There is increasingly more scientific research being done on the positive impact nature has on our metal health. Nature can provide a calming element to the therapeutic process, it allows clarity to our thoughts. Feeling connected to nature can support as sense of belonging. Like people nature thrives in the right environment. The seasons that come and go making nature an ever changing cycle. There are many elements of the natural world which are reflected in our own. These can be looked at to help us provide an understanding or perspective to where we are within our own cycle.
I’ve mentored young adults with mental health or social issues, which aims to improve self-esteem and empowers them to make well informed decisions about their future.
I have experience of working within a Hospice setting, working with patients and families approaching end of life. Sitting alongside and meeting people on an emotional level at this difficult time. I also have experience of working with people with learning disabilities and vulnerable adults within the community that are either homeless or at risk of homelessness.
I am committed to continually learn and grow both as a person and a therapist. I attend regular CPD to help broaden my understanding of issues my clients or experiencing or an area that I am curious in, these include harmful sexual behaviours, Psychological impact of MND, Safeguarding Children
