The unexamined life is not worth living

Welcome..


Reaching out for support is often the hardest step on the journey towards feeling better. If you're experiencing fear and apprehension, be assured that these feelings are entirely normal.

 You may be coming to therapy in a state of confusion and inner turmoil, or simply be seeking a deeper meaning from your life. Whatever your reasons, therapy can be an opportunity to untangle the threads of your past and present so that you may re-weave a better story about who you are and where you are going. 

Together, we will work to identify hidden patterns and meanings that inform your experience of life, using dreams, presenting problems, and the therapeutic relationship to guide us.

My therapeutic approach is integrative,  incorporating psychodynamic, humanistic, and transpersonal principles where appropriate to meet the needs of individual clients. I place an emphasis on the relational aspect of therapy which means that sessions are exploratory and unstructured.

I have worked with people who have sought counselling or therapy for the following reasons:

  • diagnosed conditions such as depression and obsessive disorders, Asperger's syndrome, bipolar disorder, and acute social anxiety.

  • confusion around sexuality and sexual dysfunction

  • challenging life transitions (illness, career change, divorce and cultural acclimation)

  • addictions, such as alcoholism, marijuana abuse and sexual compulsivity

  • looking for direction and meaning in life

  • seeking to know yourself more deeply

  • suicidal ideation and attempts

  • worry, stress and negativity

  • relationship and family problems, including domestic abuse

  • chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia

  • post natal depression

My approach is also informed by practical mindfulness techniques and their philosophical underpinnings, both of which I have found to be essential for everyday well-being and, crucially, for important realizations about the nature of mind and the process of experience.
