About me

Are you experiencing relationship, intimacy or family problems? If so, I can help. I work with individuals and couples. I also specialise in helping men who are struggling with a range of issues, including anger, anxiety, depression, sexual problems or a lack of meaning.

I don't offer a quick fix but most people begin to feel significant benefits after just a few sessions. As well as helping you deal with difficult issues or feelings, I also try to work in a 'soulful' way. This means seeing painful experiences, difficulties and suffering not just as things to get rid of but also as important influences that shape our character and can, in the longer term, lead to wisdom and self-knowledge.

Among the issues I deal with are:

• stress, anxiety and depression

• relationship problems and couples' issues

• addiction, compulsion and unhelpful behaviour patterns

• sexual issues

• spiritual issues/lack of meaning or fulfillment in life

• low self-esteem

I aim to provide a safe and supportive space, in which you can deal with issues that are troubling you. Together we can explore and clarify your feelings, as well as look at what may be underlying unhelpful behaviour patterns. This process may at times be challenging, as it can take you beyond your comfort zone, but at the same time it can be liberating and open you up to new perspectives and ways of being.

Counselling and therapy are processes in which, over time, you will begin to feel more in touch with yourself and what you really want. Of course, it is not always a smooth ride and, while there is no quick fix, there is the prospect of deeper self-knowledge and self-acceptance. I see my role as helping facilitate that journey and, perhaps, helping you find meaning in your experience.

Training, qualifications & experience

I used to work as a journalist and also spent several years in Latin America. I re-trained as counsellor/therapist after therapy helped me deal with a life crisis in my thirties.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am registered with the main psychotherapy association, the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

My training is in integrative Psychosynthesis, in which I have a counselling diploma and an advanced diploma in psychotherapy. I also have a diploma in couple counselling.

'Integrative' means my training drew on approaches from several counselling schools. This enables me to tailor the way I work to what each individual client brings. 'Psychosynthesis' is an approach to counselling that stresses the importance not only of our conscious selves and decisions but also of a spiritual dimension to our experience. It teaches that there is something mysterious and unique in every person, which cannot always be understood but can be honoured.
