Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapist
As an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist, my approach while being grounded in the humanistic, draws from various psychotherapeutic modalities. This allows for a very personalised encounter that attends primarily to the needs of my clients.
A big part of my approach is learning about your journey and together understanding what works for you. It could be that you simply need a place to be heard and understood. You might want to tackle certain complexes or unmet needs and desires that inhibit you from moving forward in life.
Where appropriate, I also work with dreams, the inner-child, shadow work , archetypes, visualisations, creative imagination, and art.
I am a fully accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), as well as a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am currently studying depth psychology with renowned author Thomas Moore.
Prior to qualifying as a psychotherapist, I journeyed and lived as a monk in India, studied theology, spent years in religious community, graduated in critical theory and the study of religion, and as a professional excelled in communications, management, and leadership. Rather than the successes, it has been the mishaps or crises that have been my greatest teachers, the real rites of passage. I have learned much about the courage and compassion that is required to truly face oneself, make peace with one’s suffering, and begin a far more substantive and authentic life. My life has been an incredible journey and I am now dedicated to helping others journey towards recovery, or what might be better termed—discovery.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
