My Approach

Transpersonal psychotherapy looks across our entire lifespan. What is it like to be us right now; how did we come to be this way; and what do we hope for, fear or dream of for our future? But 'trans' also means 'beyond'. This can be understood in a spiritual way, as being about the meaning or purpose of our lives, but to me makes secular sense as well. Who, in our truest selves, are we, and what do we truly want, beyond all the things that we are told to be and want? The integrative part means that I have also studied psychodynamic, humanistic and existential psychotherapies, as well as CBT, and can blend these with transpersonal work in whatever way feels right for you. My aim is not to provide you with answers, but to work with your creative and intuitive self to access the deep knowing, and innate capacity for joy and self-healing, that yearns to be contacted within us all.

About Me

I have worked with a wide range of psychological, emotional and spiritual concerns, including anxiety, depression, compulsions, bereavement, stress, midlife crisis, parenting issues, suicidal ideation, ancestral trauma, sexual dysfunction, sexual abuse and unexplained physical symptoms. I am also trained in collaborative dreamwork. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy from the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE), a Certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent's University, an MA in Creative Writing from Birkbeck and a BA in Experimental Psychology from Corpus Christi College, Oxford. Before becoming a psychotherapist I held research positions in neuroscience and public health, worked in reference-book publishing and spent ten years as a professional rowing coach. I welcome clients of any or no faith, gender, sexual orientation or psychiatric diagnosis.

Special Interests

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.

We live in a highly addicting world of compelling screens and tempting substances. Whether we choose to identify as an addict or not, there is often something that we would like to use less, or not at all, be it alcohol, nicotine, an illegal drug, pornography or social media. I believe our addictions are a mirror: they show us aspects of our personality that we need but cannot freely access. By sympathetically getting to know and understand them, we can transform more fully into ourselves.
I became a father in 2021 and noticed how little provision there seemed to be for men's postnatal mental health. Paternal Postnatal depression (PPND) is rarely diagnosed or talked about, and yet the pressures on new fathers are very real (sleep deprivation, relationship or sexual changes and potential role confusion, to name just a few). Many men seem, consciously or otherwise, to take a 'zero-sum' view: that they must 'be there' for their child's mother and so their own needs and feelings don't matter. This is especially true if thoughts or feelings seem 'forbidden' - a lack of bonding with a new child, for example. To have a weekly space that is confidential and just your own can be of great benefit to both you and your changing family.
Without sex, very few of us would be here. At its best it can be joyous or even transcendent, and yet it is perhaps the most difficult thing of all to talk about. How do we as individuals and couples navigate desire, kink, gender, consent, and monogamy or its alternatives? We need to talk honestly to ourselves and our partners about sex, but it can also help to talk, confidentially, with someone else.
I am Jewish but was raised non-practising, arriving at spiritual belief later in life. We can find religion or lose it, or have our feelings about it change across our lifespan. For both religious and non-religious people, big questions will always arise at some point: Who am I? What do I want? What does a well-lived life look like for me? I am also interested in alternative or unconventional routes to profound experience, such as music-making, sport and psychedelics.
