About me


Seeking therapy can be a daunting task. I offer a safe space where you can talk about your thoughts and feelings.

I practice Existential-Phenomenological psychotherapy with an emphasis on exploring lived experience, wrestling with uncertainty and finding meaning. I am interested in creativity and Jung's idea of active imagination. I believe mindfulness can help with emotional well-being and have a regular meditation practice.

As a therapist and supervisor I have worked with a range of issues including:

  • Addictions
  • Depression, emptiness and loss
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Relationships problems
  • Low self worth
  • Career or midlife changes
  • Reconnecting and exploring creativity

[Sept. 2018 - I have no evening slots available at the moment.]


I am an academic advisor at Metanoia Institute, where my research interests include:

  • Phenomenology (in particular the works of: Bachelard, Churchill, Finlay, Max van Manen, Romanyshyn and Todres)
  • Reflective journaling
  • The use of photographs in research
  • Heidegger (especially the later works)
  • Openness and Uncertainty in Psychotherapy

Doctoral Thesis - Middlesex University:

The Clearing of Being: A Phenomenological Study of Openness in Psychotherapy (2017)
