About me

I am an Accredited Core Process Psychotherapist.  My approach is based upon Buddhist principles and teachings, alongside main stream Psychotherapy. This offers clients the space the explore their difficulties in the safety of the therapeutic environment and enables us to build a relationship upon which your personal story can begin to unfold and develop.

Coming into therapy is like bearing witness to your own journey, often for the first time, as this process unfolds together we can establish what is holding you back and work towards a more fruitful and positive future.

I believe the aim of Core Process Psychotherapy is to uncover what is at the core of our being and using this as a place where we can explore the possibility of well being, a sense of true happiness and an end to what is causing our suffering.

I studied at The Karuna Institute in Devon, completing with an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy.  I am a member of the  Association of Core Process Psychotherapists and registered through the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Whilst i generally take a Buddhist approach to my work because i find the teachings useful tools to work with, i do use other main stream approaches and tailor sessions to meet a clients needs.
The client does not have to be Buddhist nor have any other spiritual or religious practice for Core Process Psychotherapy, all that is required is a willingness to engage in their own process of inquiry.


The initial session is free, and i charge £35.00 per hour there after.

I do offer concessions if required based upon income, especially during the current financial climate where people are finding it difficult to afford private psychotherapy.

Further information

Whilst i try to encourage people to attend weekly sessions as i find it more beneficial to build up a relationship i do understand that this can be difficult to commit to therefore;

  • My practice is flexible where it needs to be based upon income and special circumstances.
  • I offer on-going support which in some cases will continue after session have finished as i realize things come up and to touch base can be helpful.

For me the importance is firstly upon the health and well being of the client.
