I am an integrative psychotherapist, counsellor, supervisor and tutor. I work within a framework which includes most of the humanistic/psychodynamic, existential, transpersonal (Jungian) therapies with a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Masters degree in Jungian Psychotherapy. In addition I work extensively with clients' dreams and run workshops for qualified therapists and trainees on 'Working with the Dream' from a Jungian perspective. Feel free to contact me for the dates of forthcoming workshops. Some of my written work, both academic and non-academic, has been published and details are available upon request.
As an individual on a personal journey, I have had my own therapy and analysis over a sixteen year period with different therapists as I hold the firm belief that I cannot take my client any further than I have travelled on the inward journey to 'self'. I am thus able to work with you at the deepest level towards knowing who you really are - should you wish to find out! Not an easy journey and requires commitment; there is no quick fix! My current research and training is with psychedelic assisted psychotherapy, a personal journey exploring the benefits and healing potential of treating severe complex PTSD with psilocybin.
My consulting room is based at my home address in Kingsteignton and provides a private and confidential space in which to explore whatever issues are troubling you.
