About me

As a psychosynthesis counsellor I believe that the symptoms people bring to therapy are not problems to be rid of, but signposts that lead us towards greater understanding so that we can have freedom to express ourselves as fully as we can.

‘Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity’ T.S Elliot’

There are times in life when we find ourselves lost. We feel anxious, we doubt ourselves and struggle with situations in which we feel we have no control.

As a therapist my role is to guide you in the exploration of life’s challenges. I offer a space to share your innermost thoughts and feelings. I will listen and ask questions, I will share insights. I am not there to judge or problem solve, but to be with you in your experiences.

This process offers you the opportunity to uncover new perspectives, give meaning to your circumstances and experience your own creativity and inner power. The overall process of psychosynthesis can be divided into two overlapping stages

An exploration of our personality to attain a satisfying, “healthy” level of functioning in terms of work, relationships, and general living.

Learning to stay aligned with transpersonal energies such as the spirit of cooperation, a global perspective, inspiration, altruism and how to listen for inner guidance and wisdom.

I use a broad range of methods, tools and techniques to meet the needs presented by different situations and people. These methods may include guided imagery, gestalt techniques, self-identification, creativity, meditation, will development, symbolic artwork, journal keeping, mindfulness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I began my career as a biology teacher as I was fascinated by the beauty and intelligence in the natural world and the cycle of life we are a part of. More and more I saw the patterns in nature mirror the patterns in ourselves. Just as an acorn holds the potential to grow into a majestic tree, we too have the innate potential to become who we truly are given the circumstances we need. This inspired me to retrain as a mental health lecturer and I worked for the next twenty years with individuals and groups in the community on mental health issues. The issue of addictions in its many forms became an area of work that I became fascinated with so I retrained again as a social worker in addictions where I worked for ten years while training to be a therapist.

I chose an integrative psychosynthesis approach in my therapeutic work because I believe it draws together my life’s work, experiences and interests. This approach entails a bio/psycho/social/spiritual model which includes and integrates all aspects of our being.

As a Registered Member of the United Kingdon Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am bound by their Ethical Frameworks for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
