At the heart of life is relationship and communication. These can be challenging, with ourselves, our intimate relationships, with family, friends and the environment. For some, therapy is a need to make a shift from unhappy, unhelpful stuck patterns. For others it is part of their self-healing journey, as a part of on-going self-development.
I believe that we all crave meaning, purpose and a feeling of wholeness or completeness to our lives. These are specific to each and every one of us. This link to ourselves can get 'clogged up' and sometimes we need someone to guide us back to our own sense of purpose, meaning and self.
I work with people experiencing issues including depression, stress, anxiety, stuck relationships, addictions and many more symptoms of dis-ease.
If you are struggling with your children, or teenagers I support parents to communicate with their children by empowering and equipping them with tools to be the loving parents they have always wanted to be.
I support clients struggling within partnerships, who are separating or divorcing, preceding or post divorce.
I work with the journey of the soul, the 'inner work' of our lives, offering support and tools to facilitate deeper awareness of why this is happening and for what purpose in your life. I offer support to help you find a deeper connection with yourself, which ultimately leads to more peace.
The type of therapy I practice is one of depth psychotherapy, I am a psychosynthesis thesis counsellor. I support your soul’s journey with tools to tap into your essential wisdom. My training is in helping people tune into themselves for greater awareness and guidance.
Psychosynthesis counselling is a holistic type of spiritual psychotherapy. It brings together the best of both worlds; psychotherapy (talking whilst relating to another) and spirituality (hope, soulful inclusion of everything, an extra dimension, more than just that which we can see, hear or touch). Originally this type of work was brought to Western consciousness by the psychotherapist Carl Jung. It is a remembering of how to live authentically from your truth.
I look forward to meeting you,
Training, qualifications & experience
My work is nourished by my endless curiosity about the world of relationships, my love of nature and the arts, my relationships with my children, family and friends.
My core post-graduate training as a psychosynthesis counsellor was at The Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. I have attended various courses and workshops including; several Bert Hellinger Family Constellation workshops also known as Systemic Family Constellations, which are designed to help reveal the hidden unspoken laws operating within the family and ancestral line; Nick Duffel’s Boarding School Survivor course, the study of the impact and dynamics of being sent away from home to boarding school as a child on the adult’s inner life.
I am fully insured to work with clients and am a registered counsellor with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure.

My standard fee is £50 per hour session, I am open to discuss concessions.
I offer an initial free interview that lasts an hour, to an hour and a half. In this time we both choose if we are suited to work together. That truly means both of us have to feel suited to working together, myself and yourself. It is a time to explore, not commit yet.
The structure of working with me:
An initial interview that lasts an hour, to an hour and half, is to explore if we are suited to work together.
Every meeting after the initial interview will be for an hour. We meet at the same place, at the same time, on the same day of the week, as far as possible, with a review after 6 weeks. This clear structure is primarily there to support you in the journey we will take together, and provides a steadiness.
During the weekly hour-long sessions, we work together on whatever issues you choose to explore or sit with the not knowing.
