When life's issues feel overwhelming
A safe harbour where you can explore what is holding you back from living your life more fully
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor with15 years experience in private practice. My early career was in the construction industry. Then at 40 'in the middle of the road of my life,' like the poet Dante, 'I awoke in the dark wood where the true way was wholly lost'. What followed was a dark night of the Soul for me. Fortunately I found a therapist who supported me through this painful period and helped me reclaim my 'true way'.
It was also through this healing relationship that my life began to change and I became inspired to train as a counsellor. I found Revision: a centre for Integrative Psychosynthesis; a training that puts Soul and relationship at its centre. During this time I set up my private practice while also working at Saneline and Mind. Alongside my work with individual clients I ran a successful weekly Mens group for 5 years. In 2002 I left London and came to Devon and followed my earlier training with a post qualifying MA in Buddhist Psychotherapy practice through the Core process model at the Karuna institute on Dartmoor.
In the last twenty years I have explored a range of therapies and healing modalities, including NLP (in which I have a Diploma), EFT, Shamanic practices, Dance, Meditation & Spiritual Healing, and I have been part of a Movement of Being group enquiring into Embodied Presence here in Devon for six years.
My work has developed and been informed through a deep commitment to my own process of healing and growth. I am passionate about offering this work, and the mysterious and particular ways in which each being finds his or her way home.
