About me

I'm a psychotherapist working in north Milton Keynes. If you are looking for a way to find meaning in your life, a deeper sense of purpose and greater freedom from anxiety, then I am qualified and have the experience to support you in that search.

My approach is integrative and transpersonal. 'Integrative' refers to the different skills and knowledge that are woven into my work: an understanding of human development; of the healing and wounding nature of relationship; of how trauma is stored and healed in body and soul; of how different levels of need can be frustrated or fulfilled; of how family and cultural history may colour our present and our future.

'Transpersonal' refers to the context which surrounds and contains our work together in the therapy relationship. Neuroscience demonstrates that what we access through conscious awareness is only the tip of the iceberg: our unconscious minds contain infinitely more knowledge that our conscious minds can grasp. Similarly, as the therapist, I keep in mind that there will be more to you and your need - for healing or for meaning -  than I can consciously grasp. So I am attentive to clues from the language of our bodies, our dreams, and our intuition , as we work together.

If you know, deep down, that there's more to what's troubling you than what is apparent on the surface, then this kind of therapy may be for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I initially trained and worked as a classical musician both in Britain and abroad. I see a continuum between the creativity of artistic expression, and the creativity of effective therapy.

I was also for a number of years a member of a monastic community. During that time, besides facilitating music in the community, one of my roles involved caring for a small herd of dairy goats.

My experience includes work in private mental health, the NHS, and school and college settings. I have 12 years' experience of counselling and have worked as a psychotherapist for six years.

I hold a diploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis counselling, and a dploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis psychotherapy.

I am a registered member of UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), and BACP.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
