“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” 

Brené Brown

As humans we all need connection.   It is one of our basic human needs. 

Connection is what I offer as a therapist.   It’s the connection that is cultivated in the therapeutic relationship, between therapist and client, that creates a safe space for you to go within and discover your own innate ability to heal.

Feeling a sense of connection may be a rare experience for you. This could be because you have experienced life and the world around you as a scary and unsafe place, which can lead to a sense of feeling disconnected from yourself and those around you.

 You may have learned you need to build protection from the world and others in order to keep yourself safe.  If you imagine this protection is like a suit of armour which you put on to survive in the world.  This armour came about to keep you safe – but at a cost – loss of connection.

I work with clients to help them discover their armour, how they can take their armour off safely in order to feel connection.

If you like the sound of this please do get in touch to discuss how we can work together.

Warmest wishes
