About me and my therapy practice
Taking an inner journey of self-discovery through the therapeutic process you will discover that although life happens out there, it's how we respond to what happens that ultimately defines us. By becoming more self-aware I will help you to define yourself from the inside out - to find an inner peace and strength that will improve your life.
Life can be tough and challenging and to varying degrees we all suffer from the complexities of day-to-day living. You may be struggling to find meaning in your life or have a crisis of faith or suffer from grief following bereavement. Perhaps you find yourself repeating negative behaviour patterns but don't understand why and therefore find it difficult to make positive changes.
You may have experienced a difficult childhood or perhaps you were at the mercy of poor parenting, either through ignorance and neglect or wilful abuse. You may be suffering from depression, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, relationship issues, financial worries, or death anxiety.
Being unable to see a way forward you can feel trapped in your own life.
How can you escape these negative and damaging thoughts and emotions, how can you cope with life's adversities? Well, you can start by talking about what's facing you and expressing exactly how you feel in a safe and non-judgemental space with someone who has the right set of skills to help you.
I believe trust is key to effective therapy, and once that’s established, with your consent I will be there with you at every step of your journey out of darkness and into a brighter future.
The first step is often the hardest, but once you’ve committed to entering a therapeutic relationship and have begun an inner journey of self-discovery you won't look back.
I'm working online via WhatsApp Video, iPhone FaceTime, Skype, Zoom (clients hosts) - telephone counselling is also an option.

I believe that effective therapy has to overcome suffering and as such needs to transcend the individual. I offer a therapeutic approach called Transpersonal Therapy, which integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience within the framework of modern psychotherapy. This has its roots in Person Centered Therapy (PCT)
The transpersonal is defined as experiences in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond (trans) the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of Being. It has also been defined as development beyond conventional personal or individual levels.
I will help you discover a deep and more enduring essential self that exists beyond your constructed ego. I facilitate this by drawing upon my knowledge of counselling theory and psychology and by meeting you in present moment awareness.
Present moment awareness is the constant attention to the inner awareness of "I" or "I am" used to help people learn about themselves and the ways they interact with the world and others around them. This inner journey will involve, among other things, philosophical, metaphysical and ontological enquiry - the nature of existence, being and becoming - what it means to be human, what it means to be you.
We will drop into a space that has infinite potential and restorative energy and bring that sense of deep peace and wellbeing into the trenches of your life. I strongly believe therapy only works if it improves the quality of your life in practical ways and so we will measure your progress together.
