Life can sometimes be unreasonably difficult and you might feel ill-equipped to navigate its challenges. Or you might just want to live in a more fulfilling way. Working through such questions in a supportive and professional context can provide some insight that helps bring about change.
I can provide that context, whether you want to address a long-standing and recurring experience, or find a way of developing a greater capacity to live more consciously and creatively. For me, psychotherapy is a joint endeavour in which I work with warmth and understanding to encourage a relationship of trust, openness and equality.
I will usually draw on a variety of approaches, including Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Transpersonal, Existential, Gestalt, TA, Cognitive Approaches and Art Therapy. Depending on the needs of particular clients I use techniques such as Visualisation, Creative Imagination, Dream-work and EMDR.
My special interests include the Arts, Interfaith issues, Religious and Cultural Practices and Psycho-spiritual studies. I work with sexual, cultural and religious diversity and Trauma.
As a member of, and registered with, UKCP I work within ethical boundaries defined by UKCP (and BACP) codes of Professional Practice. I accordingly receive regular supervision and follow a programme of continuing professional development to keep my practice and knowledge deepening and growing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained as an Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapist at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in Little Venice, London, completing a four-year postgraduate Diploma Programme. Prior to that I completed a year’s training in the fundamentals of counselling with the Centre for Transpersonal Psychology. And since then, completed EMDR training parts one, two and three.
My adult life began as an architect in South Africa and I subsequently studied fine art in the UK. Prior to studying psychotherapy I worked as an artist, participating in a variety of creative projects. I have in-depth experience of the creative process and working with creative individuals.
I have experience in working with clients on the following:
• Depression, Isolation, Loneliness, and Trauma
• Indecision, Life changes and aging,
• Bi-polar and Borderline Personality Conditions,
• Sexual Abuse, Bereavement, Relationship Issues,
• LGBTQ and Sexuality issues,
• Developing rituals to aid healing and mark life changes.
I am a registered member of both the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
