About me

Why Counselling?
Whatever brings you to consider counselling, whether it is a personal crisis, trauma, depression, isolation, a relational or internal conflict, anxiety, loss or just plain curiosity, this is an important first step in finding the right person for you. I can offer you a safe and creative space and someone you can trust to explore your life challenges with you. Being with you means that we will work together to access the fullness of your inner resources and wisdom and help you to live a healthy, rich life.

How I Work
I work as a Psychosynthesis Counsellor/Psychotherapist, which means that I work creatively, with mind, body and soul, the conscious and the unconscious, the personal (how the various parts of our personality function together in our life) and the transpersonal (our connection with our deepest self, purpose and potential). I use an intuitive and relational approach with each client, which means that each session is tailored and in the moment . I also have over 20 years experience of coaching individuals and teams to achieve their potential in life. I work with individuals and couples, and also offer an online service.

What to do Next
I can offer you short or long-term counselling, whichever is most appropriate to your circumstances. I suggest that you contact me by phone or e-mail to arrange an initial session, and then decide if you would like to take this further.

Some of the Benefits of Counselling
Counselling is for anyone who wants to improve or maintain their state of wellbeing. It helps to raise our awareness of who we are and how we experience our life, how we relate to others and make sense of the changing circumstances of our lives. It helps us to accept our past and come to terms with those things that have caused pain and suffering, live in the present time with awareness and mindfulness, and move towards our future potential and live a rich and purposeful life. We are all whole beings and yet sometimes get stuck in a place of confusion, fear, doubt, anxiety, grief, where we feel 'less than' we'd like. Counselling can help you to find your Self, and become everything you can be.
