Announcement icon Due to the high transmissibility of COVID in face to face counselling, inc. between clients, I still hold all sessions online or by phone
I’m passionate about helping you make more of your life, whether you want to work on a personal, psychological, relationship or spiritual issue or to find more meaning, purpose and happiness. I have a Masters degree (with Distinction) in Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy Practice. My clients are equally men, women and couples of many professions, occupations and nationalities, aged 18 or much older. I counsel clients based in UK and overseas. I also offer Person-Centred Supervision to other counsellors and professionals. I can work short-term or provide longer-term psychotherapy for deep self-understanding and support.
My approach is non-judgmental, encouraging you to experience new self-understandings and make improvements in your life, work and relationships. You don't need a "diagnosis" - I also help people improve already positive aspects of their lives. I'm committed to helping people gain strength and change in ways that bring more fulfilment and happiness.
I also bring my life experience to our sessions. I'm from Glastonbury UK. I've worked in industry, law and university teaching. I have experience of helping people with personal, psychological and spiritual struggles/troubles. I have a black belt in ki-aikido and PhD in "enlightenment". I’ve counselled at an NHS hospital, a charity, and privately.
