I am a BACP registered, psychosynthesis counsellor working in Dalston, London.
My approach is client-centered and eclectic, drawing on a number of modalities and traditions in response to each person as an individual soul with a unique life and specific needs which, I believe, deserve a tailored response. I will not try and fit you into a certain way of being or impose some psychological theory on you. We would, however, be free to explore different ways of thinking about or approaching your concerns that you might find helpful.
Psychosynthesis offers a holistic way of working, including all the parts of ourselves – mind, heart, body and possibly any spiritual beliefs or practices you may follow.
My specific area of interest is relationships, both with other people in our lives and also with ourselves. People I work with are often aware of an internal, critical part of themselves and be inclined to “beat themselves up”, even over the small stuff. Self-esteem is one of my key areas of focus, working on negative feelings such as emptiness, worthlessness, wrongness, lack of motivation and procrastination. I’m also interested in issues around gender, sexuality and contemporary ideas of masculinity and femininity.
Naturally, as a counsellor, I’m interested in consciousness and self-awareness, including altered states of consciousness. Clients often find it fruitful to work with their dreams, symbolism, drawing, active imagination, journaling, the chakras or meditation, and we could try one or more of these if they resonate with you.
I adhere to the code of ethics and principles for approved professional practice and receive regular clinical supervision for my client work and I am professionally insured to practice.
