About me

I offer a compassionate and safe space where you can explore new ways to relate to yourself, loved ones and the world in general. Many of us in the modern world feel lost, isolated, despondent and hurt. We may feel scared or alone. Our pain can be expressed in many ways: anxiety, depression, the breakdown of relationships, addictions and obsessions. I believe that in amongst the pain and suffering their is hope. Each of us can move beyond our wounding and find a more balanced way of being.

Psychosynthesis as a psychotherapeutic approach that aims to help clients find their true self - life is about more than just survival. I feel this is important, especially in present times when many of us can feel disconnected from the world around us as well as from our own sense of purpose. We all have hopes and dreams, we all deserve the opportunity to become the person we truly are. Psychosynthesis works with both the aspects of our life that we are trying to escape from as well as helping us discover the person that we are trying to become. I find some more traditional psychotherapies pathologize our struggles instead of seeing them as part of our becoming.
I like to work in a relaxed, friendly and collaborative style. I believe that one of the most important aspects to therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. I'm not an old school stand-offish therapist who will silently wait for you to work it all out for yourself. I like to work with my clients to get things moving so we can get to the real heart of your troubles. I want you to feel empowered within the process because I think that's when real change occurs.
I am a UKCP Accredited Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist.

If you have any questions at all, please give me a call or drop me an email and I'd be happy to discuss them with you.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access
