About me and my therapy practice

We all have times of pain, crisis, despair and need. These can bring thoughts & feelings which may be hard to cope with and for which the support of therapy can be helpful. I will provide a safe space for you to look at your current difficulties or distress. However you don't have to be in crisis to benefit from this kind of support. I also welcome those who want to work on personal growth and spiritual development. 

I see the process of therapy as a journey; we share the same road for a while. I offer myself, my time and my expertise inviting you to work with me on deepening your understanding of yourself and realising more of your potential. Although this may feel scary at times, in the context of our accepting and supportive relationship you will be able to explore what is happening and how the past may be impacting in an unhelpful way on the present. 

I hope you will discover new ways of being with yourself and with others, healing for past hurts, strategies for moving forward and more connection to your potential. However I don't have a magic wand to make things better and the responsibility for personal growth and change remains with you.

I am an experienced therapist who has worked with individuals since 1994  by intertwining the spiritual and psychological within a pastoral context. I draw on psychosynthesis which is a creative therapy embracing the the whole person: body, feelings, mind and soul. This approach values times of darkness as much as times of joy, it invites us to: embrace the unknown; respect the creativity of confusion;  welcome the unexpected; include a spiritual perspective and work on integrating our inner life. As I get to know you I will match my way of working to suit you as an individual. However you are free to choose whether to accept or reject my suggestions as it is important for you to experiment with your own learning rather than to please me.
