Former lawyer, now a therapist, I have learned that therapy can be described as a relationship between two people, where one person has fewer problems than the other, and that person, one hopes, is the therapist. I am an ACT based, Buddhist therapist who has tried to develop an eclectic mix of mindfulness-based CBT, and, using the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I try to offer empathy, compassion and above all, presence. I have lived in 3 countries, have had several successful careers, and for the last 17 years have felt deeply engaged in sharing such life-wisdom as I have developed, with clients who are interested.

People essentially want and need to connect with themselves and develop authenticity. All healing takes place from this place. I help people to develop the serenity to accept the things they cannot change, the courage to change the things that they can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

People approach therapists because they are in pain. This is often pain from the past, resulting from painful and dysfunctional childhoods, or pain resulting from challenging life circumstances, often involving loss and grief. I hope I have real sources of empathy and compassion to sit with them and just hear them and together we find the way forward.
