WHY MY UNIQUE APPROACH WILL WORK FOR YOU
You are a human being, not a symptom, your current state; anxious, depressed, lonely, fearful etc is just a temporary phase; by seeing it as such we can look at how best to give you coping tools to help you manage your life, work or relationships better.
How my approach to counselling helps
My unique approach to therapy strengthens your sense of control of your personal environment, growth, an understanding of purpose in your life,. Focusing on current symptoms, it moves you from being 'in this state' to the more positive consciously aware end of your emotional and mental wellbeing. For example;
Where are you today in the world of you?
Being honest with ourselves first and foremost is the only starting point, its somewhere between our personal vision of being perfect and inside being a few steps away from anxiety and panic. It probably feels more like one or more of these right now:
- Personal Environment: You often feel overwhelmed by the circumstances of your life and unable to control them. When the chance for something good comes along, you may lack confidence and feel unable to take advantage and then subsequently regret that you missed the opportunity.
- Personal growth: You may have goals for improving your life but always believe you’re falling short and will probably never meet them. Instead of growing, you feel like you’re stagnating. Perhaps you lose interest in trying to change and can’t seem to get out of the rut you’re in.
- Purpose: The idea that your life has any meaning disappears, and there seems little point in working toward a better future. You may find a short-term purpose in your own goals that offer temporary satisfaction but it’s hard to sustain a sense of direction. You may feel that any effort is pointless.
- Powerless: This often means trying to please everyone at the expense of your own opinions and needs. You become passive and unassertive rather than risk disapproval, you feel frustrated and dissatisfied most of the time.
- Self-Awareness: You don’t accept who you are and feel ashamed, perhaps uncomfortable in your own skin. You feel you can’t do anything right and reinforce the sense of failure by setting impossible goals. If you’re anxious and often freeze in social settings. Anything less feels like a failure that confirms your belief that you won’t succeed simply by being yourself.
- Regard for others: All these problems in your sense of yourself make it almost impossible to form close relationships. Feeling shame about whom you are can lead you to project faults and inadequacies on someone you’re trying to be close to. You may feel incapable of engaging emotionally at times because you feel so indifferent about everything in your life.
Things to consider before your appointment
Where do you find yourself along the spectrum of the above six dimensions? Do you feel you’re making progress or just standing still, stuck? Are your beliefs, attitudes and behaviours aligned to your personal values, principles and personal noble truths? Do you have a clear understanding of what they are?
Together we explore where you are right now and form a plan to get you where you want to be. If this resonates, my theory approach is unconventional so please call and see if I am the right fit for you.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Transpersonal therapy takes a more holistic approach, addressing mental, physical, social, emotional, creative, and intellectual needs, with an emphasis on the role of fostering a healthy mind body and spirit.
Transpersonal therapy works to answer such questions as:
- How can we alleviate own suffering by deeply re-connecting with who we really are?
- How can we then feel more connected to others, the world, and the greater whole?
- How can our spiritual selves help us and guide us through difficult times?
- How can we find meaning and purpose in a changing world, and how can spiritual traditions and tools help with this?
- How can we find our own true worth and potential, and by so doing recognise humanity’s highest potential?
Is transpersonal psychotherapy the right fit for you?
Here are some questions that might help you decide if transpersonal psychotherapy is for you.
- Do you feel that there is more to life and to you than meets the eye, and you’d like to go deeper in finding what ‘lies beyond’?
- Do you have a sense that all things are interconnected, that you are part of a bigger whole?
- Would you like to be more connected to others and to feel more of a sense of purpose?
- Are you interested in your spiritual wellbeing?
- Have you found various spiritual tools of value in your life, or would like to experience more of them?
If you find yourself answering yes to these questions, then transpersonal therapy might be a good fit.
£70 per session.
I usually work with you in an initial exploratory session in order for us to get to know each other to ensure we both feel comfortable working together. Thereafter we agree sessions in 6 session blocks with clear objectives and reviews. We zero in on one of your key factors: for example, anxiety., loneliness, depression.
Many people ignore all the warning signs, we get irritable, fatigued, we lack interest in anything, many just patch it up and tell themselves to keep going. Anxiety today is a common state that many ignore but it is a warning sign. It can be frightening. We have to learn how to shift our mindset, set boundaries and to listen to the warning signs instead of ignoring them. That way we can manage ourselves better for a more positive and rewarding way of life.
If you feel you are experiencing any of these symptoms please do not hesitate to contact me for an initial confidential consultation.
