About me

I am an experienced accredited Integrative Transpersonal psychotherapist offering professional psychotherapy and counselling services to individuals on a short and open-ended basis.

  • Short-term sessions let you explore your current situation and find ways of managing your difficulties in a better, more positive way
  • Long-term work allows you to gain a much deeper understanding of yourself and explore challenges you face and their root causes and create a lasting inner change

I offer a safe, calm and welcoming space in a peaceful, rural location. My office is conveniently situated for many neighbouring areas: Gerrards Cross, Ruislip, Denham, Hillingdon, Harrow, Northwood, Richmansworth, Watford, Hertforshire and Buckinghamshire towns and villages

My areas of expertise are:

  • relationship and family issues
  • anxiety
  • bereavement and loss
  • life purpose and meaning
  • spiritual growth and awakening
  • life crisis
  • life transitions and changes
  • identity crisis and issues
  • depression
  • trauma
  • female anger
  • women issues
  • inner child therapy
  • dream work
  • creative work

My approach is Integrative, which means I aim to use a variety of therapeutic tools and approaches when working with clients depending on their personality and presenting issues. Sessions are tailored to a client’s individual needs. The core of the work is for clients to take time in a safe and comfortable environment to explore feelings, thoughts and behaviours.

I describe the process of counselling and psychotherapy as a journey of unfolding and discovery. The purpose of the journey is to help clients understand their feelings and behaviours better. I encourage a move towards exploring, interpretation, intervention and response to patterns in a more positive, useful and productive way, which facilitate our growth rather than keep us in a cycle.

Unconditional acceptance and open-hearted compassion is at the centre of my practice, as well as, therapeutic relationship and a safe place to explore what troubles you.

In addition to my Integrative approach, as a Transpersonal psychotherapist, I believe in human potential and aim to empower clients to engage in the process of healing and taking steps towards living a better life. I aim to facilitate the process of unfolding within a person on a deeper, more profound level and get them back in touch with their unique beautiful qualities that might have gotten out of balance. I work holistically and creatively looking at the whole situation from a cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual points of view to aid the most healing and progression. This way of working sees everything as a whole, e.g. symptoms in the body as symbols of things wanting to be known and healed. Distorted thoughts and negative scripts wanting to be re-written to their original story, before we were touched upon by external factors. With intuitive and guiding support of being fully present with what is manifesting in the therapy room, a relationship between a client and a therapist, seeks to make unconscious conscious and look at material presented in a way of 'what is out of balance, what is unfolding, what needs attention and what is the meaning of this experience?' My approach incorporates working with intuition, creative imagination and the body and exploration of dreams.

I also offer Nature psychotherapy sessions (outdoor therapy) to individuals to promote mindful observation of surroundings, breathing and self-awareness through connecting with nature. Sessions can take the form of either simply walking, talking, observing, silence and mindful awareness, or we select a specific place outside to sit in and work through internal processing while connecting to outside elements.

I have access to natural wooded area within walking distance from my office. Alternatively we can choose to meet in a natural place closer to where you are, a space of your choice. My passion and inspiration for this work stems from interests in Ecopsychology and Environmental psychology, as well as, nature-based spirituality.

If you would like to find out if counselling/psychotherapy will work for you please get in touch for an informal, no obligation assessment.

Please note that I currently don't work with couples, children or adults under the age of 20.

I look forward to connecting with you.
