My Approach

Dream work, shamanism, connecting with the four elements are approaches that I bring from my experience in these fields, in addition to simply being present with you as a safe space to reconnect with your true voice of inner knowing. Your authenticity.

I find these approaches can be very helpful in re-establishing your inner ground so that you are better prepared to explore any habits and mindsets which might be holding you back. Ultimately, I really want to support you in finding your joy and self-compassion so you can be fully you.

I often find sessions can be intuitive from both sides. Simply trusting what comes up as we go along and allowing insights to spontaneously arise can bring awareness and light to what was previously hidden in the shadows.

About Me

My name is Steve and I am a psychosynthesis therapist.

After years of supporting people as the manager of a respite care centre and as a shamanic practitioner of the Inca and Toltec traditions, I am now bringing my warm, non-judgmental and compassionate approach to my work as a therapist.

My intention is to offer a safe space for you to explore your feelings and emotions and together we can bring some clarity to the issues you would like to work on and shed light on what may previously have been hidden, gradually allowing for your true, empowered self to emerge into the world.

I offer online and telephone therapy, in addition to face to face therapy in my studio, located close to both Kingsbury and Colindale underground stations in London.

  • Individuals
  • Private healthcare referrals

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.

As a former manager of a respite sanctuary for the suicidal, I have sat with hundreds of people either struggling with their own suicidal ideation or dealing with the suicide of a loved one. My approach is to be gentle and curious about suicidal thoughts. To gradually bring them to light and reducing shame around them. I feel that is where real healing can lie.
