I am a London (UK)-based psychotherapist trained at Regent’s University comprising psychodynamic, integrative and existential approaches. I maintain a small private practice and have a 20+ year career leading teams in technology. Other interests are humanism, LGBT issues, yoga and mindfulness. My undergraduate degree was in International Relations and more recently a PgDip/Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am now undertaking an Advanced Diploma. I am a member of the BACP and the SEA (an existential group). My contributions have featured in Therapy Today, the Hermeneutic Circular (published by the SEA) and Reflections journal.
How I work with clients
The existential school that I’ve trained in is a philosophical enquiry into what life is all about. Psychotherapy is for me not about proving theories. It’s practical wisdom for the client, about the client, as discovered in meeting. I embody an open but critical attitude toward labels and diagnoses to help clients investigate their experience in pursuit of new possibilities. I am ready to attend to what could be termed spiritual as much as biological, social and psychological aspects. I am a fan of mythological insights (Hindu, Greek), archetypal models (Jung) and of helping construct your own.
