I am currently training for a Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE), and should complete my qualification in 2020. I am a student member of the BACP and adhere to their Code of Ethics.
As an integrative therapist, I work creatively and intuitively by drawing from a variety of approaches — from psychodynamic, to Jungian, humanistic and existential — all the while holding in mind a transpersonal perspective, and a firm belief in the capacity of the human psyche to heal its wounds and break free of limitations.
I bring to the therapeutic space a warmth, openness, curiosity, and a non-judgemental attitude to help create a space where you feel safe to bring and explore all layers and aspects of yourself. Whether you are coming to therapy with a particular issue, a general sense of unwellness, or a deeper search for purpose and meaning, I intend to walk alongside you and help you unpack your personal story, better understand your feelings, and gradually find out and stand in who you really are.
In addition to my formal therapeutic training, my approach is also informed by my own personal journey. In particular, I have been using practices such as meditation and yoga, music and creative writing, and immersion in the natural world, as pathways to self-knowledge and personal growth.
Ultimately, I believe that connectedness to oneself, others and the world is essential to our flourishing as human beings, and that therapy can provide a most precious space within which to explore and understand what stands in the way of our wellbeing, and in so doing enable both subtle and profound shifts to occur.
I work at Spiral on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
