About me

​Empathy and trust are central to the way I work. I believe that it is important to be present with a client, with a wholeheartedness that puts theoretical considerations in the background.

We all have a source of wisdom inside us. A part of us that knows what we really need and knows how we can heal and grow.

I have a diploma in psychotherapy (transpersonal) from CCPE in London. I make use of theory and different techniques from a spectrum of different psychotherapeutic approaches; however, the decisive factor in the therapy is the confidential relationship between me and my client.

The counselling service I offer provides a safe, comfortable, accepting and non-judgemental space for you to explore your problems. This provides you the time and space to consider what is right for you without any pressure.

Psychotherapy adds a deeper dimension and can involve looking back on your past to understand how that affects your life now. This can give you the opportunity to become more aware and to look at new ways of understanding and behaving that can lead to a more creative and satisfying life in the future. Psychotherapy provides a fertile ground for the unfolding of our deepest potential and qualites.

Therapy can be about making a decision or even about taking a completely new direction in life. I feel that therapy is about finding out and expressing who you really are.

Psychological symptoms are not simply problems to get rid of, but indicate that change needs to happen or that something needs to develop within your personality. It can be the case that our symptoms or our problems contain the seed of what we need to develop in ourselves.

It can feel challenging to look closely at yourself, your relationships and your wider life, even a little frightening; however, therapy can support you to find a healthier balance in your life.

Like having a precious jewel that is covered in mud, we can feel that what we have inside of us is worthless and dirty. We just want to get rid of it, get away from it, or feel that this 'muddy' way of seeing ourselves is the truth.

However, if we can look more deeply at what we feel is bad about ourselves it is possible to go deeper than surface appearances and discover our true value and inner beauty.

Ultimately, therapy can help you to become who you truly are, your real authentic self, the person you were born to be.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist with a diploma from the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education. I am a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and offer individual counselling and psychotherapy to adults.

My work integrates psychodynamic, existential, humanistic, cognitive and transpersonal modes of psychotherapy. I am also interested in working with dreams from a transpersonal perspective.

I draw on the work of Carl G. Jung and Hazrat Inayat Khan as well as Freud, Melanie Klein, Harry Guntrip, Carl Rogers, Fritz Perls, Rollo May, Anthony Lunt and many others.

I am particularly interested in the use of mindfulness and in working with dreams, in particular, the waking dream method developed by Dr. Nigel Hamilton at CCPE.

I am professionally insured and follow the UKCP code of ethics.

I have a particular interest in mindfulness based approaches, the use of active imagination and dream work.


Psychotherapy can be effective in both the short term, medium, and long term (6 months up to 3+ years).

The length of the therapy will depend on what you wish to resolve and develop in your life. Sessions are once a week, for 50 minutes.

My fee is £45 per session.
