I am a qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor working one-on-one with adults. I provide a safe environment where you can share what you’re going through, begin to understand and find ways to cope with your life difficulties, explore your deeper self and invite more self-compassion, acceptance and kindness into your life.
My approach - Psychosynthesis
Psychosynthesis is an integrative and transpersonal psychological approach, recognising and emphasising we are meaning-seeking creatures.
In Psychosynthesis we give space and explore the personality, with all its drives and impulses, biological needs, learned behaviours, patterns and defences, self-beliefs, family influences and societal pressures. We also acknowledge the soul with all its infinite depth, wisdom, qualities and potential.
It encourages us to expand our narrow awareness and start to compassionately include painful or shameful parts of ourselves, become reflective of our behaviour, thoughts, feelings and body, while motivating us to see the qualities that perhaps were not allowed in us - such as creativity, spontaneity and playfulness.
The work is in search of a form of synthesis - revealing, accepting and integrating our exiled parts together, allowing us to create a stronger and fuller sense of self with all its human complexity.
"Everyone must come out of his Exile in his own way.” - Martin Buber
I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Psychosynthesis Trust. The course is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and awarded by Middlesex University.
I am Registered Member MBACP and abide by BACP ethical framework.
I attend regular clinical supervision to support my work, and invest in my continued professional and personal development as a counsellor.
I presently work in private practice.
How to get started
Please get in touch and we can arrange an initial session. This session would be used as a form of assessment, where I will be asking you some questions and we can start to get to know one another. We will discuss what brings you to therapy and what are your expectations. You can ask me any questions you may have about the process and my approach, and by the end of the session we will aim to agree if we would like to work together. We would agree on time, location and duration of work, or you can decide to work on open-ended basis. This can be reassessed as our work progresses.
