About me

I’m an integrative and psychosynthesis counsellor based in the Shoreditch / Liverpool Street area. I aim to provide an open, non-judgemental space where individuals can begin to make sense of their inner world and come into a deeper relationship with themselves. This process can support the changes they may be seeking to live a more fulfilling life.

People can sometimes find themselves feeling stuck and held back by limiting patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours, which can be a source of frustration and pain. Bringing a kindly awareness to feelings and thoughts can enable individuals to begin to understand old patterns more fully, supporting them to let go of what no longer serves them. This can free up space for a new way of relating and being in the world to emerge.

It seems that no-one gets through life without experiencing some form of hurt and wounding. For me, the counselling process is about really acknowledging this, giving our feelings the space and validation they deserve. Indeed, it is often through contacting our wounding that something new can come into being.

I’m aware that as a culture we tend to spend a lot of time “in our heads”. My experience has taught me that meaningful change requires a deepening relationship and sensitivity towards our feelings, effectively bringing us more into our bodies. I’m influenced by the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, which can support clients to come more into relationship with their immediate feelings and sensations.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about how I work.
