Psychotherapist and Counsellor
Holly has completed a Masters of Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy (Jansen Newman Institute). Her style is relaxed, warm and curious and her approach is humanistic, wholistic and integrative. Holly is interested in how our mental wellbeing is affected by stressful events and difficult relationships throughout the lifespan. When these difficulties remain unexplored, we can disconnect from parts of ourselves (our emotions, body sensations, intuition and longings) and we can be left feeling numb, agitated, stuck and detached from ourselves, others and our life.
Holly feels privileged to bear witness to peoples’ process of opening to their loss, hurt, disillusionment and suffering. Through seeing our habitual ways of being and understanding the path we have trodden, we then have a greater sense of choice and the possibility arises to integrate new richer, fluid ways of being that are responsive to our circumstances.
Holly is committed to her own personal inner work and engages in regular supervision. She has also worked in healthcare for 18 years as an Occupational Therapist, with people of all ages, with a wide range of physical, cognitive and mental health conditions. This work has developed in Holly the ability to meet people where they are at and provide a sincere holding for people in times of distress.
