About me

I provide a warm, welcoming, safe and confidential environment where you are completely accepted as you are. Whatever you want to share or open up will be fully received without judgement. Counselling is actually a journey of growth & self-discovery. It is about getting to know yourself better through the process of gently peeling back some of the layers and bit by bit opening up to your deeper feelings.

How counselling can help

Psychotherapy or Counselling is an effective and powerful way of helping you move forward in your life, resolving some of the areas that may feel ‘stuck’ or holding you back from being happy. You don’t have to be in crisis, just a desire for more freedom and expansion in your life and feeling ready and willing to make some changes.

Life’s problems can be seen as opportunities for growth to help bring us to a place of deeper understanding of ourselves and counselling is a way of finding your way back home to your true sense of who you are. It’s about helping you to take the steps that you need in order to feel happier, more at peace and personally fulfilled.

Some of the areas I can support you with are:

  • Self-esteem/confidence
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • ​Depression
  • ​Bereavement
  • ​Relationships
  • ​Direction
  • ​Meaning & purpose

About Me

I am a transpersonal psychotherapist and counsellor with a passion for peoples personal development, growth & well-being. The potential for people to move into a more connected and heartfelt way of being is what inspires me to do this work & I very much look forward to meeting you if you decide to peruse this path. I will be standing with you, helping you to find the best means to help yourself. There is a magic that can happen when both client and counsellor meet with a mutual intention to go deeper on the journey together of discovery and healing.

What to expect from your first session

The first session is 30 minutes and will be a time to get to know each other and for you to get a feel for me and my way of working. I will ask you a few questions, particularly about what you are most wanting from counselling. It will be a time in which you can open up as much or as little as you want. Afterwards you can reflect on how it went for you and you only need to get back in touch if you decide you would like to continue.

My Way of Working

My style is pragmatic and integrative, which means I tend to draw on various therapeutic processes depending on what is best suited to your needs. This can involve visualisation, emotional expression, somatic awareness, meditation and inner child work.

The sessions tend to unfold in a natural and organic way without the need for rigid structure, often in ways that are revealing and surprising. Sometimes this will involve me simply listening and encouraging you to go deeper, to bring more of yourself out. At other times I may offer feedback, insights or offer a practical way of exploring things further, often encouraging you to connect with your bodies awareness of the deeper feelings that may be there.

Transpersonal

I work mainly from the transpersonal perspective and this encompasses the spiritual dimension of who we are, acknowledging the interconnectedness between all the people and events in our life as part of an unfolding journey towards being a more complete and whole human being.

I also have an interest in the Systemic perspective of Family Constellations based on my recent studies in this field, and this interest filters into my work with clients This way of working can be brought more directly into the sessions if you want to explore this.

Practicalities

I am based in the 7 Dials area, about 7 minutes’ walk from Brighton station. There is pay & display on-street parking.

I also do sessions on-line via Skype, so you can do this from wherever you are in the world.

You may wish to have an initial 30 minute session to get a feel for myself and my way of working. This initial session is free.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor, completing my training in 2006 with the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education in London. I have a Masters degree in Transpersonal Psychotherapy and Counselling from De Montfort University.

I have completed a foundation year in Body Psychotherapy & Somatic Awareness with the Chiron Centre.

As well as working one-one with people I have for many years been running groups and courses in self-awareness, mindfulness & emotional intelligence for people seeking empowerment and change.

I have completed the foundation training certificate in Family & Systemic Constellations and I am currently completing studies in the advanced applied training in this work with The Centre For Systemic Constellations (CSC).

I have recently studied Sacred Esoteric Healing with Universal Medicine and have qualified in advanced level 1 & 2.

I adhere to the code of ethics of the governing bodies for counselling and psychotherapy in the UK and I have regular supervision to support me with my work.

Further information

Some people come for a set amount of sessions that is agreed upon at the beginning. For example a series of 10 sessions. A ‘one off’ single session is also possible.

Really there is no right way of doing it and it is about what you feel you are needing. We would usually discuss this question during the first session so that you come to an arrangement that feels right for you.

I also do sessions on-line via Skype, so you can do this from wherever you are in the world.
