About Me

I am a process oriented psychotherapist and coach, based in Edinburgh, where for most of the year I see clients (individuals and couples) at my private practice called ProcessWalk. Following a long-term passion for the outdoors, I also organise residential workshops and retreats, aimed at facilitating personal development, overcoming challenges and healing past wounds in a transformative space so generously offered to us by nature. During those events people from different walks of life can 'get away from it all', reflect on a particular issue, listen to their inner voice or just enjoy the surroundings and quality time we so rarely allow ourselves to experience.

Embracing the Renaissance ideal of developing oneself as a whole, I studied a variety of subjects, from English studies (MA) to business administration (MBA), psychology (MSc) and psychotherapy (Dipl. PW). Over several years I have gained experience in academic, healthcare and business environment, which I find extremely useful for my current facilitating, coaching and training work. While in Edinburgh, I also co-operate with non-government organisations on social and cultural projects, which often involve working with community groups and promoting empowerment and inclusion based on Deep Democracy principles. For the last few years I have been also running a successful business coaching practice.

The most frequent issues I explore with clients relate to stress, lack of motivation, feelings of emptiness, lack of purpose in life, anxiety and depression, relationship problems, low self-esteem, imposter syndrome, inner critic, personality clashes, conflicts, procrastination, middle-age crisis, burn-out and setting priorities in life (I call it ‘setting priorities’ although it is often referred to as 'achieving a ‘work-life balance’, for me however, there is a difference).

One of my passions is helping others to unfold their Life Myth, a story that is trying to happen through their lives. Exploring it enables people to gain more awareness of their potential and re-establish connection to themselves, other people, nature and the world. They may see their relationship issues, psychosomatic symptoms and childhood dreams in a new light and gain valuable insights from those encounters. The journey can happen individually, though most people prefer to attend one of my residential workshops, during which we go through a number of activities including exercises, nature walks and individual reflections. As a result, the participants can frequently find more meaning in their personal life and at their workplace, getting closer to their inner direction or 'calling' and finding which step do they want to take from there.

If you have a question about my sessions or workshops, you're more than welcome to visit my website or contact me via email or on the phone.
