How Do I Work?
Find out about the ways in which we can work together.
I offer both face to face and online therapy (via Zoom). My face to face sessions can take place either at my bricks and mortar office in Whiteley or in my fabulous camper van Bertha (based near Wickham). Using Bertha means we get chance to access the natural world around us and use nature as a powerful addition to the other therapies I offer.
Face to face therapy is perfect if you want to carve out some time for yourself; whilst online therapy allows you to access the help you need from the comfort of your own home, wherever you are in the world.
FACE TO FACE SESSIONS - THE 'BERTHA EXPERIENCE'
I am now in the very lucky position to offer face to face sessions in Bertha, my beautiful camper van based in a quiet Nature Reserve near Wickham, Hampshire.
Bertha offers you the opportunity to leave the stresses and strains of your everyday life to carve out both time AND space to focus on you.
The healing power of nature is well documented and with more studies and research supporting the premise that being in nature is super beneficial for our mental health, I am so excited to be able to offer this unique service.
I’m able to utilise all my existing tools and techniques whilst giving you some time away from your problems. You get chance to reconnect with your true nature at the same time as connecting with something bigger than yourself – a way to expand your consciousness whilst rebuilding resilience.
Although Bertha’s location is a hidden gem, it’s easy to find and is accessed by well maintained roads. I have been given access to a WC and of course I can provide comfy cushions and a hot cuppa!
Working online is easy and convenient and is as safe and effective as experiencing therapy in-person.
When we work online together, I have a duty of care to ensure your sessions are conducted safely and securely and I take that very seriously, which means I have a comprehensive policy that I adhere to, which I share with you, along with Terms and Conditions etc.
Working together online is very easy and only requires you to have a stable internet connection, a good quality webcam and privacy so you are able to speak freely, without worrying that others can overhear you. For all therapies you require good lighting and I need to be able to see you from about your waist upwards but all this is explained as and when necessary.
I use Zoom video conferencing software as it is very reliable and encrypted.
FACE TO FACE SESSIONS IN SPACES, WHITELEY
A more traditional therapy experience can be had in my bricks and mortar Therapy Office in Spaces, Whiteley, Hampshire (PO15 7AZ).
Spaces offers a light and spacious environment where you can ‘switch off’ from the everyday and relax in comfort in a private office.
It’s easily accessible from the M27 and has plenty of free parking. You simply press the Spaces button at the barrier and explain you have an appointment and someone will buzz you in (if you’re visiting outside of office hours, I will give you the access code).
Once parked up, you make your way to the main reception where you let the reception staff know (or you can call me if out of hours) and they will contact me. I will then come down to meet you and take you to my little office of calm for your session. It couldn’t be easier.
Of course, if you’re ever unable to make your face to face appointment due to self-isolation or unexpected circumstances, then we can always have an online session instead – no drama llama.
