About me

I am a UKCP registered transpersonal integrative psychotherapist, qualified to work with adults, children and young people.

My approach is based on talking therapy combined with creative exploration. I take a depth psychological view, recognising all dimensions of consciousness, and seeing a problem as potentially a guide from the unconscious. In the words of James Hillman (1990) the ‘symptom is the first herald of an awakening psyche which will not tolerate any more abuse’ (p. 18). I believe in the importance of individuals realising their full potential and in bringing balance to life.

As an integrative psychotherapist I will draw from a range of different approaches dependent on the client’s needs. We will look at the difficulties you are facing, and attempt to understand them from past, present and future perspectives. How do your past experiences and upbringing affect who you are today? What challenges are you currently facing and how can you best address these? How can you fulfil your full potential in the future? Using the knowledge gained we will work together to bring about change in your life. As a transpersonal psychotherapist, I believe in the importance of integrating all aspects of a client’s wellbeing including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions.

Working creatively can reveal the unconscious and bring balance to the psyche. It is also useful for exploring preverbal issues, for clients who have difficulties finding words to express themselves, or when working with young children and adolescents. Creative interventions may include working with dreams, drawing, sand tray and visualisations.
