About me and my therapy practice



In our work together, you will be encouraged to embrace your repressed power, to look with curious and non-judgemental eyes when exploring your defence mechanisms, behaviours, and discover your belief systems, (mostly created when very young), which can unknowingly govern your life.

Insights gained from these observations, combined with being in dialogue with your body and developing an understanding of your dreams and your body’s guidance, will enable you to make more conscious choices, and thus live a more inspired and fulfilling life. Making better choices generates improved mental, physical, and emotional health, and an integrated sense of well-being.

Once we gain insight, it’s not enough to know something in our mind, we need to embody this awakening, and in turn this will help us remember who we truly are, and to see the world and our place within it clearly and absolutely. Hence my practise ‘Embody Insight’ derives from my belief in the wisdom our bodies hold, which is available to us in any moment.

With so much going on in our lives, be it personally or collectively, we can have many questions that are important at any time, but more so in our world today.

How do you retain your centre and balance despite your environment and the events happening around you?

Do you live your life from your heart, or your wounds?

Reconnect, Reclaim and Remember who you truly are, and discover your purpose for coming into the world. You are a whole, creative, and unbroken being with an earthly & spiritual nature.

Practice description

I have been a practising psychotherapist since 1997. I work one to one with adults and have experience with children & younger adults. I have an enhanced DBS.

I work online and from home, which is in a quiet, central London square close to London Bridge, where there is accessible controlled parking nearby and public transport.

My training was an integrative modality with a transpersonal element, incorporating a broad range of theories of psychology, psychotherapy, and models of development. I continue to study theories of psychology as well as spiritual disciplines, philosophy, and anything else with the focus on living an authentic life.

I encourage my clients to record their dreams, which can give guidance and reveal sincere information of where they are in their lives, the issues they need to explore next, and what is required to move towards a more fulfilling life.

I continue my own personal therapy and supervision, plus attend workshops with renowned psychologists, mystics, authors, & psychotherapists, who influence my own therapeutic journey.

My CPD, (Continuing Professional Development), also includes studying Process Orientated Psychology, Experiential Anatomy, Authentic Movement, Self-Enquiry through writing, and Tai Chi & Qigong. 

My first session

The initial contact can be made via phone, or email to decide a mutually agreed date and time for the first session. A client assessment form will then be emailed to you and asked to be returned prior to the first session.

During the first psychotherapy session, I will inquire about current issues in your life, including what brings you to therapy at this point, and what you hope to achieve from being in therapy. Once you have discussed your presenting issues, we can decide on what basis you would like to proceed and whether we are the right fit to meet your needs. A good therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client is essential for the therapy to be of benefit.
