Remember that even pain is temporary.
Honor your boundaries, treat yourself gently, let go of perfection, and feel your emotions without letting them control you.
You have enough experience to face the storm and evolve from it.

Core Process Psychotherapy and Counselling
What are you willing to do in order to invest in change in yourself ?
Are you able to own the choices that you make in life and feel good about it?
I am both a counsellor and psychotherapist, based in the Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Canton, Cardiff. I integrate both humanistic counselling with mindfulness based psychotherapy, and am accredited with both BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).
Both person-centred counselling and a mindfulness based psychotherapeutic approach can help us to deepen into our rich inner lives.
As a counsellor and therapist, I lean on Eastern Buddhist wisdom as well as western psychodynamic processes. This approach can offer a way to see ourselves differently from the ‘old’ story of ourselves that we may carry. It helps us to get in touch with our emotional body - our embodied, grounded self - in a more present and direct way through noticing and deepening into our sensations, feelings, and emotions.
Counselling and psychotherapy can help us to come into contact with our emotional body’s wisdom and deepen into a trust in ourselves and what feels right for us. We can turn towards our inner wise person, and listen to that guidance.
Feeling safe in an open, and receptive energetic field, can help us to soften around our defended places, and express our emotional connection more fully. It can feel like a relief to hear ourselves 'show up' to ourselves, and this can help us to move through difficulty and distress.
Deepening into an authentic connection to our true nature can feel new, challenging and unsettling and it is important that you work with a counsellor or therapist that you feel comfortable with. When we feel 'good enough' in a therapeutic alliance, we can start to trust in parts of ourselves that we may have disconnected from, so that we can evolve and grow in ways that can often feel surprising and creative. As an embodied counsellor and therapist, I have a sense that the body knows what to do with emotional pain, when we turn towards it, instead of avoiding our tighter internal places.
I'm based in the Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Canton, Cardiff, and offer both face to face and online work.
