, Colour Therapist, Counsellor, Crystal Therapist, Healer, Hypnotherapist, Life Coach, Psychotherapist, Regression Therapist, Relationship Therapist, Sex Therapist, Tension and Trauma Releasing - Rode
I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a Member of a number of Professional Counselling/Psychotherapy bodies. This includes being an Accredited Member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy whose Code of Ethics I adopt. I work predominantly with individuals and utilise a Psychoanalytic perspective.
I believe it is important to recognise that all degrees of psychological malaise, distress and pain can be addressed and supported within the therapeutic space. The therapeutic space provides a place to just be, to become and to transcend the difficulties which confront you and to live a fuller richer life in relationship with others and the world. The world in which we live in can present many daily challenges but often it is how we perceive these - how can these challenges be transformed into potential and can we adjust our lens of perception and move from entrenchment to personal freedom?
I believe that life changing transformation is possible with the right mix of client/therapist. I have witnessed incredible changes in clients which one would have not believed to be possible and link this with the deep relationship which forms between the client and the therapist. This is a relationship of containment, transition and hope.
Outwith the psychoanalytic field I have an interest in spirituality, theology and philosophy and have a business background as well as an in-depth psychological one. My understanding of work-related issues and psychological dynamics within work groups is supported by my experience of working Internationally in a number of capacities; including a Global Corporation, Management Consultancy and British and American Governments. My psychotherapeutic style is informed by Freud, Bollas, Jung, Winnicott, Mitchell and Fonagy; which means that I utilise an Integrative, Contemporary, Psychoanalytic process to maximise the benefit to you.
The first introductory session is free and will give you an opportunity to decide whether or not we can work well together. Please call me with any questions you may have or to make an appointment.

I am experienced in working with depression, anxiety, bereavement, grief, loss, trauma, abuse, sexuality, spirituality, spiritual accompaniment/guidance, identity issues, attachment concerns, relationship issues, addictions, dissociation, work place issues and various other psychological disturbances over the broad spectrum of the human condition. Counselling and psychotherapy can provide a forum for personal growth and development and I am experienced in helping people achieve this through a focus on potential and transmutation/transformation.
I am also experienced in working with students who have an essential requirement as part of their programmes to engage in counselling/psychotherapy.
Supervision is also available on an individual or small group basis.
I also teach psychotherapeutic and counselling concepts, in combination with contemporary and evolving energy theories, to Diploma level students.
Approach to Therapy & How I Work
I foundationally work psychodynamically with adult individuals in both the short and the long term. I have flexible session times available and will see individuals either once, twice or three times per week. The decision belongs to you. During the process we will work together to address key psychodynamic areas such as the employment of defense mechanisms and other areas of the unconscious, dream symbolism and interactions in your relationships. The process can be as gentle or as challenging as we make it as co-creators in the therapeutic work. Often the body, or the somatic self, can be impacted by material which is outwith your current realm of awareness. In my work with you I can provide a space to access the mind-body relationship and bring about the potential to change not only the psychological but also the physical.
There is no therapy which will suit all presentations, issues, disturbances and symptoms. Due to this I integrate a number of treatment protocols as and when required in order to achieve the results clients desire on a psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual level. Therefore the fusion may encompass: Psychotherapy, Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Energy Healing, Crystal Therapy and Regression Therapy.
