A very warm welcome

At Pendulum of Peace support you will find a warm, compassionate presence from a  Humanistic-Integrative practitioner, who believes you are an individual with unique abilities.  Focused on supporting you overcome what brought you into counselling, what concerns you, and created difficulty for you. I believe you can reach your fullest potential and see you as the expert on yourself.

 

My approach is forward moving with expertise and focused on relational qualities, individual needs, self-discovery, personal responsibility, personal choice and growth along with  autonomy and agency. 

As counsellor I'm an empathetic professional, caring for you,  like a lighthouse supporting  you through the stormy waters of life, providing you with time and attention for you to express your thoughts and feelings, explore, clarify and find solutions for anything you choose to ponder upon.  

My focus is on you

Sometimes life can be overwhelming, we can find it difficult to cope following a stressful or distressing situation. The daily pressures of living can create anxieties and we don't know how to manage our emotions or know what to do next for the best. This is where counselling with an experienced, professional and nurturing counsellor can make all the differences.

I’ve accrued over 20 years’ experience as a counselling practitioner supporting others experiencing common mental and emotional health difficulties and life’s complex conundrums.

In my role as lead counsellor at our local Children's Hospice; part of my week is spent supporting families experiencing the toughest of times, caring for children and their families experiencing multiple and complex emotional needs, within a specialist trauma and bereavement counselling service.

Over the years I've volunteered for several local charities working as practitioner at Doncaster Cruse Bereavement Care for 6 years, Doncaster Alcohol Services (DAS) for 7 years, Victim Support Serious Crime trained to support clients who have experienced sexual abuse and domestic violance and worked at Shaw Trust Children's Centre working with disadvantaged  families.   

Bringing together all my experience and knowledge to offer you the tools to understand, manage, accept and heal from the impact of, for example: 

  • Trauma - traumatic experiences and the difficulties you are left with.

  • Historical childhood sexual abuse - Complex Post Trauma Stress Disorder (C-PTSD).

  • Difficult relationships, betrayals, breakdown of trust and healing from Domestic Violence and/or Narcissistic traits playing out in relationships.

  • Bereavement, by suicide, sudden death, death of a precious Child, Spouse, Sibling and palliative care, and the multitude of losses bereavement evokes.

  • Anxiety disorders - social, health, generalised anxiety (GAD), OCD. 

  • Intrusive thoughts, and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

  • Health, understanding new diagnosis, the 'different' you and adapting to multiple losses and multiple changes.

My focus is on you, I will support you, using my experience, awareness, skills, and knowledge, to enable you to feel better, from life's difficult experiences causing you concern in the here and now.  Together in collaboration we will work through your concerns and difficulties, at your pace and in your own time.

A space to support you to untangle, understand and discover aspects of yourself that perhaps you haven’t noticed and put to good use before. This will lead to you making informed choices and taking mindful actions, whilst shifting and mastering your emotions, so they are not the master of you. My focus is on you, I will support you, using my experience, awareness, skills, and knowledge, to enable you to feel better. Collaboratively work though any negative  emotional patterns or unresolved past traumas which may be holding you back here and now, discovering who you are and who you want to be, where you want to be in the future.
