Life can sometimes be unreasonably difficult and you might feel ill-equipped to navigate its challenges. Or you might just want to live in a more fulfilling way. Working through such questions in a supportive and professional context can provide some insight that helps bring about change.
I can provide that context, whether you want to address a long-standing and recurring experience, or find a way of developing a greater capacity to live more consciously and creatively. For me, psychotherapy is a joint endeavour in which I work with warmth and understanding to encourage a relationship of trust, openness and equality.
I will usually draw on a variety of approaches, including Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Transpersonal, Existential, Gestalt, TA, Cognitive Approaches and Art Therapy. Depending on the needs of particular clients I might use techniques such as Visualisation, Creative Imagination and Dream-work.
My special interests include the Arts, Interfaith issues, Religious and Cultural Practices and Psycho-spiritual studies. I work with sexual, cultural and religious diversity.
As a member of, and registered with, UKCP I work within ethical boundaries defined by UKCP (and BACP) codes of Professional Practice. I accordingly receive regular supervision and follow a programme of continuing professional development to keep my practice and knowledge deepening and growing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained as an Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapist at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in Little Venice, London, completing a four-year postgraduate Diploma Programme. Prior to that I completed a year’s training in the fundamentals of counselling with the Centre for Transpersonal Psychology.
My adult life began as an architect in South Africa and I subsequently studied fine art in the UK. Prior to studying psychotherapy I worked as an artist, participating in a variety of creative projects. I have in-depth experience of the creative process and working with creative individuals.

• Depression, Isolation, Loneliness,
• Indecision, Life changes and aging,
• Bi-polar and Borderline Personality Conditions,
• Sexual Abuse, Bereavement, Relationship Issues,
