How I work
I am an integrative counsellor, which means that although I trained in Psychosynthesis counselling, I use a variety of therapeutic techniques to help you explore the challenges that brought you into counselling.
I offer a safe, non judgmental space where you can work through a variety of issues including stress, anxiety, grief, climate anxiety, trauma, neurodiversity and more.
As a Psychosynthesis Counsellor, I recognize your personal potential and the importance of charting a meaningful path in life, as well as working with early blueprints and historical influences.
I have thirty years’ experience of working with people of all ages and backgrounds in higher education settings and social justice environments. I was a University Lecturer for many years and before that I was a Programme manager and social justice activist.
My own journey has involved human rights awareness and mediating cultural inequality issues. I have worked with individuals, groups and communities to foster healing and positive change.
I have a special interest in the more painful aspects of being human. The ‘what’s it all for?’ questions and a particular focus on climate change anxiety.
My experiences have given me an international outlook and a sensitivity to our global community as well as to the individuals that make up the fabric of our communities.
