Integral practices for soulful and creative living
Integral soulful conversations
For individuals, I offer deep and soulful conversations that focus in helping you find yourself, fulfil yourself and grow yourself in this troubled and beautiful world. This might look and feel like counselling, coaching, psychotherapy, spiritual companionship or all (or none) of the above! You can find more details by clicking HERE and downloading my 2017 information sheet. I'll be updating it to reflect 2018 changes soon. My face-to-face work now takes place at the St Davids Wellbeing Centre in Pembrokeshire, but I can also work via. Skype, Facetime and email support.
These days, I am particularly concerned in supporting individuals who are looking to respond – in whatever way – to the crisis of climate change, and related challenges. This might involve working to support you in your wellbeing, spirituality, creativity, activism, art – or a combination of all these. The climate crisis is a particular and unique trauma that we have never faced before, so it is not surprising that people find it difficult to respond to and live with. This might involve us in living well in the present, even if we cannot hold hope for the future.
You might also complement your therapy or coaching with one or more of my e-courses, or to undertake creativity coaching which will help you develop your own creativity, imagination and artistic practices. I've worked to support a number of writers, artists and creative practitioners over the years. I also current edit Unpsychology Magazine which draws together activists and artists who are responding to the big social and ecological themes in the world today.
I have worked as a counsellor, psychotherapist, coach and facilitator for over 20 years. This work has taken place in numerous settings including workplaces, schools, GP surgeries, working for Relate and in the community. I originally trained as a counsellor, followed this up with an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy, and have undertaken further training with Relate, the Spiritual Companions Trust and in EMDR, Ecopsychology, Writing for Wellbeing, Integral Practice and Mindfulness – to name just a few. I am currently involved with the Climate Psychology Alliance – a forum for people wanting to make connections between depth psychology and climate change, as we all face the difficult truths of climate change and ecological crisis.
I am certified as a Spiritual Companion by the Spiritual Companions Trust.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
