My approach

I have over 20 years’ experience as a counsellor in psychosynthesis therapy. This is a transpersonal therapy which combines Western psychotherapy with Eastern spiritual and philosophical traditions.

The treatment falls somewhere between counselling and psychotherapy as it works on a very deep level, focusing not only on the presenting issue, but also addressing stuck patterns of behaviour formed in early life, in order to realise our highest potential. This is achieved by bringing our attention to these patterns, exploring the positive and negative aspects of them, and utilising their pure essence, with the aid of various therapeutic techniques.

I take a holistic approach to counselling, to explore whether your life holds enough meaning for you or is unfulfilled in some areas. This may also include a spiritual element if appropriate. This is not in a religious sense, but instead offers a chance to look at the spiritual dimension of the human experience and explore what gives our life purpose and brings us joy.

Therapy can be both short and long term and incorporates 6 different methods of working. These are:

  • talking
  • body therapy
  • free drawing
  • Gestalt (chair work)
  • visualisation
  • dreamwork

Clients may choose to use all or none of these methods in addition to a talking treatment.

Training, qualifications and experience

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling and Therapy (Psychosynthesis Education and Trust)
  • Certificate in Counselling male and female survivors of sexual assault (Rape Crisis)
  • Certificate in Counselling and Personal Development (City University)
  • Degree in Creative Writing (BA Hons)
  • Degree in English with African and Caribbean Studies (BA Hons)

I have specialisms in working with clients who identify as BAME or LGBTQ, and with clients who practise sexually diverse relationships (polyamory/ethical non-monogamy, Kink/BDSM).

I also have several years’ experience of working with adult male and female survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Alongside counselling, I am a mental health practitioner, supporting students who have mental health issues, providing a specialist mentoring service in London universities and online.
