My Approach

Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy. I aim to work collaboratively and sensitively to help clients understand what is going on, why and how to move on.
Looking across one’s lifespan we can establish why we have certain beliefs, thoughts and so act in the way we do. I aim to help people see this and then feel empowered to move towards the life they want.
If requested I am able to blend psychotherapy with coaching to support people in the corporate sector on how to find more fulfilment and resilience in the realm of work, weaving psychotherapeutic approaches into the practicalities/realities of the workplace.
My training and work with Path Retreats enable me to work at a deep level, to compassionately support people's growth.

About Me

I am a UKCP accredited integrative psychotherapist practising in central London (W2) and Kent (Goudhurst), also online.
I trained at CCPE in central London for 5 years.
Before becoming a psychotherapist I worked in the European Retail sector for many years, giving me an understanding of the stressors and dynamics of the workplace.
My experience includes working with MIND, Fresh Start and other organisations including The Samaritans.
I am part of the Path Retreats facilitation team, working on the 7 day Path Of Love process in several countries.

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.

Anxiety often arises as a coping or defence mechanism, an attempt to keep us safe. Understanding the triggers and their origin starts the healing journey. Anxiety is often felt in the body and so to overcome it we need to include working with the body sensations that arise. This builds resilience. This physical element subconsciously drives much of our behaviour, for example withdrawing or avoidance to temporarily find perceived safety. I believe reducing anxiety is very achievable and it requires a blended and personalised approach.
Depression can be seen as what happens when we lose the ability, drive or desire to connect with the world. It can be brought on for multiple reasons. However often in the mix is a loss of a person's capacity to express themselves and feel heard. The journey to move forward needs to be tailored to "reverse engineer" the person's route into depression. Depression can actually offer an opportunity to re-assess one's life and embark on new choices and curate a life that is enriching. It is very possible to emerge and re-engage.
This is an umbrella term that covers many diagnoses, including the self diagnosis we often give to ourselves. Understanding the true situation we are in with a psychotherapist offers a basis for mapping a way forward. This might occasionally include suggesting bringing on board other care professional (such as a psychiatrist). At the heart of every diagnosis is a real person who finds themselves in a situation for very specific reasons. Starting with listening carefully, we building self awareness that also serves to settle the anxious mind and so build a platform to grow from.
Relationships form a cornerstone of our mental wellbeing - relationships with others and also the one with ourself. Many people do not like themselves very much. This is usually a legacy of the past, a now maladaptive response that no longer serves us. Much of our suffering comes from a sense of disconnection and so it is helpful to look carefully at what happens when we connect with others. Nourishing relationships require us to be self aware and then work through the barriers to awarding connection. Often old thinking patterns and beliefs need to be sensitively challenged as no longer serving us.
Stress is that which occurs when a situation feels beyond our capacity to handle it. Over time this can become chronic, bringing about a series of responses from avoidance to adapting in unhelpful ways. Understanding the route into this state is key to reversing it. Understanding the state of a person's autonomic nervous system allows us to soothe this and build resilience. Stress always has a physical component and addressing this also is key. From this basis we can look at what has caused the stress to accumulate and what can be done now. What are the beliefs, thoughts and patterns of behaviour that need to be gently challenged/allowing us to then to shape how we wish to be in the world.
