Hi, I’m Annabelle.
I’m a therapist and I work with other therapists. These are surely strange and challenging times to be working as a therapist. It’s important that we invest in getting what we need to work effectively with our clients and nurture our own well-being.
I truly love helping therapists discover how creativity and mind-body approaches can enrich clinical work and nurture their own resilience and vitality.
I’d love to hear from you – what would be helpful, what do you want to talk about? What would support you in being a better, more creative and more embodied therapist — now in this tumultuous time or in general?
