About me

I am an experienced, fully accredited psychotherapist and counsellor working in Brixton and Waterloo in south London, and also in Dalston, Hackney, east London.

I trained and qualified in mindfulness-based Core Process Psychotherapy at the Karuna Institute in Devon and have been working therapeutically with a wide range of clients since 2011. My professional experience includes working in private practice and as a counsellor with Mind in Camden's Minor Tranquilliser Project.

Inspiration and support for my work comes from a long-standing Zen Buddhist practice. As well as maintaining a daily meditation practice, I attend regular retreats and co-run meetings of the London StoneWater Zen Sangha, which is part of a traditional, authentic lineage.

My approach

Both Buddhism and Core Process Psychotherapy recognise that there is a fundamental state of wholeness, or health, that is potentially always available to us, no matter what difficulties we might be going through. In Core Process terms, this is described as our core state: the inherently luminous, unified field of awakened heart/mind that can be experienced when we step back from our conditioned patterns of thinking and behaving. In Buddhism, the core state is sometimes described as our true nature, Buddha nature, awakened mind or brilliant sanity. It is a place of non-separation.

I work collaboratively with my clients – bringing attention to body, mind and feelings – to help bring greater insight and compassion to their experiences and difficulties. And as both Buddhism and Core Process Psychotherapy understand, it is the cultivation of awareness itself that opens the door to the possibility of deep and lasting change.

Fees

Fees range from £55-£70 per hour-long session. I offer a free 60-minute initial consultation. At this first meeting you can ask any questions you might have. We talk about what is happening in your life to get a sense of whether therapy would be right for you and to decide whether we would like to work together.

Further information

I work from the Breathe-London Wellbeing Centre at Waterloo near London's South Bank, within easy reach of Waterloo, Southwark and London Bridge stations (see photograph above). I also see clients in Brixton SW2 and in Dalston, Hackney N16.

I am a fully accredited member of UKCP; I adhere to the UKCP code of ethics and am fully insured.
