About me

                                'Soul Making.....'

I have over 30 years experience working with individuals, couples and groups. I'm confident that by now, my work is thoroughly infused by my many characteristic eccentricities! Hopefully they don't intrude, but rather enable me to help you to live soulfully with your own.

I offer counselling, psychotherapy and supervision. I work from a broadly holistic viewpoint, avoiding narrow specialism which I feel often leads one to ignore vital, wider contexts and the depths hidden there. I try to understand symptoms as the mute, yet eloquent language of psyche and endeavour to relate them to the essential in our lives.

My main conceptual frameworks are transpersonal ( psychosynthesis and archetypal psychology) and existential. I can offer short-term focused counselling or longer term depth work.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling 1990
Advanced diploma in Psychosynthesis 1994
MA Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy 1999
Involved with Synthesis Training, Bristol

Currently, other than individual work which takes most of my time, I'm engaged also as a

Supervisor for USW Newport student services and lead a reflective practice group for clergy of the Church in Wales.

I'm part of the management team of the Monmouth Natural Health Centre which I set up with colleagues 30 years ago.

I've run a wide variety of groups over the years.

I have worked widely with people from all walks of life on self referred basis, local authority, social services, GP recommendation, EAP programmes etc.

Accessibility

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.
