About me

Distress or unhappiness is not usually a sign of a mental health problem, although we sometimes fear that it might be. Together we try to discover the purpose of the unease and what would bring about any desirable change.

Psychotherapy is not about curing, but about engaging with the innate wisdom of the person and encouraging the development of their essential (often hidden) strengths and qualities. This process tends to naturally lead to an enhanced sense of self and purpose, and therefore to better qualityof life.

I have over 25 year experience of accompanying people on thIs journey of self discovery.
Although influenced by the principles of analytical psychology I endeavour to folow the specific needs and interrests of the client, confident in my belief that each one of us can learn to discover the guidance which constantly comes from within, regardless of age, educational experience or cultural and spiritual background.

Some people prefer just talking, while others like to experiment with art material, sand tray, movements or sounds.

often psychotherapy clients work over several years, some over a few months, other only a few weeks, occasionally some people want a single consultation in order to clarify a specific issue in their life or work with a specific dream.

Typically we have an initial free half hour introduction followed immediately or at a later date by an assesment if which we decide whether we are suitable for working with each other and make a working agreement.

I am also trained in EMDR and EFT and make these available to people who do not wish to engage in indepth paychotherapeuthic work, in order to help alleviate traumatic memories and PTS, compulsive behaviour, Anxiety, Anger, and some physical (non clinical) symptoms, often with impressive results in a relatively short number of sessions.
However research demonstrates that the most important ingredient of a succesful therapy is the relationship, sometimes called the working allience , between client and therapist. I invite you to explore this possibility.
