About me

I offer one to one counselling and psychotherapy, supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists, and spiritual integration. I am also a trained mindfulness meditation teacher and qualified life coach.

My intention is to offer a safe and trustworthy space in which you can explore what it is to be you. And while I have extensive training and experience, I consider this the work I needed to do to arrive in the therapist’s chair as a human being: not an expert who tells you what to do or give advice.

Someone alongside.
Someone to whom you can bare your heart and soul.
Someone who will encourage your curiosity and help you cultivate self-awareness.

I am a Gestalt psychotherapist, and also heavily influenced by Buddhist psychology and practices: I therefore work across the humanistic and transpersonal approaches. You may want to understand a little more about what this means, so I invite you to explore my website to get a sense if my approach feels a good fit for your needs:

Do get in touch if you have any questions.
