About me

Remember who you are… There comes a time in life when we begin to question everything – our life, its meaning and even who we are.
Sometimes this happens after a single event or as a result of a series of happenings. And then there are times when there doesn’t seem to be a cause at all… ​ Whatever the factors, the sense of loss and lack of joy that follows can seep into every aspect of life. There may seem a pressure to just get on; to pretend that everything is fine. Maybe an urge presents itself to make some changes and shake things up – a new job, exciting romantic encounters, retail therapy or even a change in location. But the sensation of heaviness soon returns… and there in the background it stays….waiting…
During these times it is invaluable to have a neutral space to simply be as you are in that moment. And then to talk without fear of judgement to someone who has been there too, and who will travel with you on the journey through what ‘is’ and towards what may be.

What is Psychosynthesis

Psychosynthesis is a model of transpersonal psychology often referred to as “soul work” which considers the spiritual nature of a person that can be overlooked in traditional psychology.

It does not regard the person as damaged or unwell, but that through trying to survive life, has become fragmented and distanced from their essence – their real self.

Psychosynthesis looks at the whole person and treats by uniting all aspects of the self – emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual to heal painful histories and get back in touch with the person you truly are, and to discover all that you may be.

Counselling or Psychotherapy?

Counselling is ideal for those clients with an issue that arises and consistently hinders them in their life. The support can be short or longer term.

Psychotherapy is much more in depth, longer term work but provides the opportunity for total life transformation as together the client and the therapist work to heal trauma and the effects of painful histories.

Each type of therapy helps you heal the wounds that have separated you from who you really are.
My practice is based at the Towcester Therapy Centre in Towcester, Northamptonshire – roughly 10 minutes from Brackley, 20 minutes from Northampton, Daventry and Milton Keynes and 30 minutes from Banbury, Oxfordshire.
