My approach to therapy is concerned with listening deeply to you and responding in a way that values you as an individual and what you are bringing. I work with people from all walks of life. My approach brings together a trust in the wisdom of the psyche and a care for the soul. It is grounded in transpersonal integrative theory and informed by work with the body, dream work, the creative imagination, and systems theory. I believe that we are all unique and individual souls on a journey through life, that we are more than our problems and our failures, and that at the deepest levels of our selves we are wise beings seeking to express our potential into the world. Counselling and Psychotherapy can offer a safe, caring space for you to understand your soul’s purpose, to make sense of the relationships and challenges of your life’s path, and to heal the dysfunctional patterns and habits that interfere with your well-being.
I have been working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist for over fifteen years. I also have over twenty-five years experience of working in the private sector with individuals, teams and groups in the areas of organisational development, personal and team development. I have Diplomas in both Psychotherapy and Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. I also have a Masters degree in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy from the same Institute in London, which is affiliated with Middlesex University. My approach is founded upon the work of Roberto Assagioli who was as Italian psychiatrist, a colleague of Freud and Jung. He studied in depth both Eastern and Western traditions, philosophy and mysticism. The integration and synthesis of these wisdoms makes Psychosynthesis therapy and counselling unique.
I also have a BA (Hons) degree in Modern Languages (French and German). I am a yoga and meditation teacher. I speak reasonable French and German, and also some Greek. I have lived and worked in France, Germany and Greece. I am originally from Wales. I now live in Greece on a full-time permanent basis.
