About me

The pace of modern life or sometimes your early experiences can promote the notion that you must try and deal with your difficulties by yourself, sweep them under the carpet or put on a brave face. You may have thought that if you keep going, one day you’ll wake up and your problems will have disappeared, but they haven’t. So now it's time to try something new; to seek some help.

I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space to talk about your problems and help you understand your emotional life better. This can include exploring your past; focusing on the present and your current challenges or your future by considering obstacles you may face in achieving your goals. It can be a mixture of any or all of these aspects of your life. This is something we can discuss and, together, decide the areas on which you'd like to focus.

My approach is kind, warm and open so you can explore your difficulties with respect and at a pace that's right for you. Sometimes I’ll be more challenging and direct to help you get below the surface and make sense of things that may be holding you back - but I will always be on your side.

As well as talking through your issues there are other techniques I can use, which are effective at helping you understand your problems better, such as: working with images, guided meditation and mindfulness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm an experienced, qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, with a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling, from the Psychosynthesis Trust, in London. Psychosynthesis is an integrative style of therapy, meaning I can utilise a range of recognised disciplines to better assist you and your problems.

Psychosynthesis believes that we are not the problems but rather that we have problems, and that these manifest themselves in symptoms that can indicate a deeper meaning trying to emerge in our lives.

I offer a focused approach for a specific issue in short-term work or we can go into more depth for work in the longer term.

My training is fully accredited by BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), adhering to their Ethical Framework and therefore I am a Registered Member, fully insured and in monthly supervision.

I come to counselling from a teaching, music and arts background. Due to working with young people in London and Kent in my teaching career I have seen first-hand how mental and emotional struggles can be stumbling blocks to achieving potential, goals and dreams.

In addition to this as I have many years’ experience working with creative people, I understand the challenges of balancing artistic pursuits with more day-to-day aspects of life, and the toll this kind of lifestyle can have on mental health.
