New Pastures Therapies

I appreciate taking the first step can be daunting and potentially scary, as an ​integrative therapist I will provide a safe space to explore your feelings, free of ​judgement and in complete confidence. Sessions are taken at your own pace and ​the time is there just for you.

I work on a holistic basis, allowing each person the time to explore their feelings ​in the moment. As my approach is integrative, I use Psychodynamic, Person-​Centred and CBT approaches.

Having worked within a large corporate environment as a coach, I have learnt the ​importance of personal development and self-esteem building. I will support and ​encourage you in your own personal journeys and will help you identify your own ​strengths.

Having graduated from Norwich School of Art and Design, I love art and the power ​of creativity. This can be incorporated as part of your therapeutic journey.

What is Creative Counselling?

Behind every type of counselling there is a principle that you, as the client should be seen and heard.

Creative counselling embraces this, whilst also holding a space where thoughts, feelings and emotions can be ​expressed freely through different outputs.

Connect through creation

Sometimes it is hard to find the ​right words. Drawing, painting, and ​cretivity can express the ​unspeakable. You don’t have to be ​an artist to be creative!

Objects and metaphors

The world and our interaction ​with it is a complex matter. Using ​objects and metaphors can ​provide a container to make ​sense of this.

Express by doing

Research has linked the act of ​‘doing’ with calming the central ​nervous system and making sense ​of feelings. Crafts are amazing for ​keeping your hands busy, whilst ​processing thoughts.
