Transpersonal (psychospiritual) Psychotherapy

About me

Introducing myself: to date, I have over 20 years' experience in my role as therapist, over 30 years' meditation & mindful awareness practice - and 67 years' experience of living life! I draw on all of this in my therapy work, which enables me to engage and guide from an inside experiential place.  

My personal & professional approach is a warmly mindful one in which I regard each of us as human beings choosing to work together for your deepest benefit.  This translates easily into the way I work.  I begin by recognising your being, your experience & life situation...with open-minded sensitivity, taking care to honour your needs and your pace as you engage in the process called therapy. 

Now, maybe you are new to therapy.  Or maybe not.  However, whether you've had ordinary counselling or psychotherapy before, it may well be you are new to deep process (psychospiritual) psychotherapy. 

Proceeding to making contact: if you choose to proceed, you are welcome to make your enquiry by email or by phone.  *Please note: if you'd like a brief (10-minute) introductory chat about therapy, you are welcome to do so. If I'm not available to answer your call, please message me with the times you yourself will be free to speak, and I'll either ring you back then... or message you to arrange an alternative time.  Also, please bear in mind that the essence of our work will involve sensing and experiencing, supported by mindful awareness and self-acceptance. This process is designed to develop healthy attitudes, guiding you into deeply healthy ways of being and living.  (Woven into this therapeutic process is whatever it may be you specifically wish to explore and resolve.)

Therapy offers investment in true quality of life...with soulful depth.

My CHELTENHAM PRACTICE is in a quiet area located in the north end of Cheltenham ...near the top end of Pittville Park, off Tommy Taylors Lane... in a peaceful location, with easy off-street parking nearby.

Prior to booking your initial session... a brief conversation by *phone (see above - Proceeding to Make Contact) or **email will provide the opportunity to ask any questions you have about therapy with me, while you will gain a sense of my presence. This is also an opportunity to tell me anything you may wish me to know in advance of your first session. 

** Contacting me via EMAIL: please say something briefly about whatever drew you to contact me...together with your situation and/or whatever you wish to explore or resolve.  Also, please mention any experience of (or interest in) meditation, mindful awareness, intuition, and transpersonal/transformative material. (I choose carefully those I work with, so as to be able to draw on my professional expertise for your greatest benefit.)

Contactable by email, text, & phone, I will respond promptly to any message.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair-friendly access at my practice. Slight slope up to front door. Hallway and ground floor therapy room on smooth engineered wood (though ground floor toilet is small). Please send specific requirements.
