In the darkness and stillness
Of your inner being

You will find within
A most wise and loving voice
That knows exactly what you need... 



Your story is not an absolute fact. Your story is a creation, and it can always be changed ... 

about The Voice Sanctuary

The Voice Sanctuary is a safe harbour for people who wish to explore and transform troubling thoughts, voices, internal conflicts, negative self-beliefs or difficult life stories. 

There are many reasons why people have these experiences, and it does not mean you're crazy or broken. Life brings so many challenges to us all; healing is about making sense of your experiences and integrating (accepting, loving and learning from) all that you are. 

At The Voice Sanctuary, I offer

General counselling

Help with life's difficulties, using trauma-informed perspectives and practical tools to help shift perspectives and release negative programming.


Voices and parts work 

Everyone has inner parts and many people also hear voices. If these voices or aspects of self are in conflict or are troubling you, then I can help you to explore them and integrate them. 

Embodied Processing (EP) 

EP is a powerful yet gentle way of working somatically with your body and sub-conscious to help release blocks and negative emotions, and find the origin of trauma. 


This the process and art of telling your story via mediums such as memoir-writing, art and film-making. Telling your story is liberating and life-changing. With practical and emotional guidance, you can heal old wounds, lay to rest regrets, and re-write your future. 

My methods 

I never use one modality because people are so different, but I draw on Embodied Processing Therapy (somatic work), narrative therapy, art therapy, Voice Dialogue (inner child and parts work), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and metaphysical techniques (e.g. dreamwork, guided visualisations).
