I have been a UKCP registered psychotherapist since 2003 and worked with all kinds of people bringing all kinds of life issues and problems, including anxiety, depression, loneliness, meaninglessness, spiritual questions and relationship issues.
My main training is in Core Process Psychotherapy, which is an integrative approach combining mindfulness with understandings drawn from developmental and depth psychology. This includes but is not limited to understanding how our past can shape and pattern our perceptions and expectations of relationship, of others and the world. The past is always embodied as process in the present. By bringing awareness to that process - how we construct ourselves and our relational world - we can over time loosen up and work more creatively with those feelings and patterns that might be constricting our lives and which perhaps bring us to psychotherapy. Just as important is an openness to what might be emerging, a sensitivity to where the deepest currents of our being might wish to flow, including relating creatively to questions of ultimate meaning and purpose.
