My approach is is warm and intuitive, working with what I call 'whole-being awareness' - in the context of 'feet-on-the-ground' soul's journey. (Formal description: Transpersonal psychotherapy with Integrative foundation.)
Engaging in the process of therapy may be considered a genuine investment in true quality of life. Your therapy with me will be fine-tuned by my response to your self and your needs. If what you bring to therapy is uncomplicated, and not deep rooted, then whatever it is may be fairly quick to ease or resolve. Naturally, the more complex or deep rooted your difficulties, the longer your process is likely to take to resolve or transform.
An experienced transpersonal psychotherapist with a long-established private practice, my professional background also includes fine art, special needs education, adult psychiatric care; meanwhile, my personal journey includes all kinds of creativite expression, plus meditation practice (rooted in traditional meditation and mindfulness).
My work focuses into each person's relationship with their own self...and extending to the exploration of how they relate to others and their world. In this context, my specialisms include profound self-awareness; whole-body awareness, self-assertiveness, down-to-earth spirituality, creative expression; creative blocks, psychosexual health; intimacy, gender dysphoria; gender identity, aging, dying; loss, and also mental health (eg: anxiety, depression, dissociation, borderline personality disorder, psychosis...)...and now also climate crisis anxiety / existential crisis.
I work differently with every person, as every person is different. And, while identifying what is likely to work most effectively for the individiual, I'm always guided by my intuition and sense of the other person's being.
Having read up to this line, if you would like to take the next step, then you're welcome to contact me to ask me about therapy and/or to arrange your initial session (via phone or email).
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.
