My approach is down to earth, creative and flexible, and rooted in an Integrative Transpersonal framework. I draw on interweaving concepts from Jungian, Gestalt, relational, psychodynamic, neuroscience, body psychotherapy and family systems theory as well as developmental and archetypal psychology.
Each therapeutic encounter is unique and my training has taught me to draw on different branches of psychotherapeutic theories. An integrative approach encourages us to be curious about the past but also hope to find a place for imagination, the here and now and the possibility of new ideas and positive change.
I work holistically, from a soulful perspective. Soul can mean many things, but I often think of soul as intuition - something that lives within and tells us whether to go left or right; a quiet voice that often knows the answer to things that we think we can’t comprehend. Transpersonal therapy seeks to connect - or reconnect - to this soulful voice, at a pace that feels right.
My training at Re-Vision was in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapeutic Counselling and prior to this, I completed a Postgraduate Certificate in the Therapeutic Arts from the Institute of Arts in Therapy and Education.
I am also an active musician and have worked in music education for many years. I worked with all students of ages, from pre-school to adult learners and was also a music practitioner in a Special Educational Needs school.
My background as a counsellor involves working for Mind in North East London and at the Centre for Better Health in Hackney.
I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
