About me and my therapy practice

For all their bewildering array of approaches, psychotherapists are united in the belief that two people talking openly and honestly can find clarity and encouragement. Because life can seem pretty meaningless sometimes. We can feel held back by limiting beliefs about who we are and who we’re supposed to be. My training is in psychosynthesis, a transpersonal model that sees life struggles as a call for growth, for a greater sense of self to emerge. I offer empathic support for that growth without judgement, pre-conception or limitation.

You can bring a specific problem or just a general feeling. Either is good. You don’t need to know where to begin or what to say. We’ll start from where you are, exploring who that really is, what you want and what stands in your way. It's not always an easy conversation and it's rarely a quick one. It's not cheap either. So, to find out if my approach feels right for you, we will begin with an assessment. I don’t charge for this meeting and there is no obligation to continue.

Practice description

I hold a level 7 advanced diploma in psychosynthesis psychotherapy from the Psychosynthesis Education Trust in London. It’s a transpersonal approach, which means that as well as working to improve mental health generally, we are also interested in the bigger questions of meaning and purpose in life. While I hold a therapeutic focus on resolving unwanted patterns and defences, I never lose sight of my client's fundamental wholeness and higher potential. And it’s an ‘integrative’ model, which means I will draw on a range of therapy techniques to find the best approach for each individual client.

My first session

The assessment helps us find out if I’m able to offer what you’re looking for and if my approach feels right for you. If we feel comfortable to work together, we’ll make an agreement that usually involves a six-week term with a review at the end. From there onwards the work is open ended with regular reviews to check and direct progress.
