I worked for many years teaching, creating resources and later managing an environmental education charity, before training in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. I was drawn to Psychosynthesis because of its more positive context of self-realisation than traditional psychotherapy.
I enjoy working creatively alongside my clients in an honest, collaborative and transparent manner. I believe the most important qualities I have to offer as a psychotherapist are bravery, gentleness and good humour. We must have the courage to face our demons, the kindness to tend our wounds and the spirit to find a life worth living.
I’m not an old school stand-offish therapist who will silently wait for you to work it all out for yourself. I like to work with my clients to get things moving so we can get to the real heart of your troubles. I want you to feel empowered within the process because I think that’s when real change occurs.
I gained my masters degree in psychotherapy at The Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. Since graduating I have worked mainly in private practice and also as a counsellor for organisations working with addictions and survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Presently I work in private practice in Cheltenham and London, and I teach at the Institute of Psychosynthesis on the masters degree programme in psychotherapy.
I am a UKCP Accredited Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist.
If you have any questions at all, please give me a call or drop me an email and I’d be happy to discuss them with you.
