Psychological wounding isn’t generally just something that needs fixing but rather can be seen as a hidden guide to what is truly unique about an individual. Therapy at its most effective can be seen as a kind of alchemical container for the human soul to transform every day suffering into compassion and meaning. We might reimagine the exploration of emotional pain as a non linear and non literal journey towards ever deeper levels of soul awakening.
For 12 years, starting in the late 90’s I helped create a charity that pioneered outdoor camping retreats, an experience that shaped and inspired my Buddhist influences. Later I felt drawn back to to the Psychological and the Soulful and a powerful Transpersonal Training at Re-Vision in London. I enjoy living in rural Devon where my interests include Tai Chi, Improvised acting, Dancing and still think I can play a bit of football!.
