I specialise in spiritual crisis, spiritual emergency, and other unusual or ‘anomalous’ experiences. Spiritual crises are often associated with psychological or emotional distress and there are many approaches and techniques to help manage them successfully. I work with the Spiritual Crisis Network in the UK to provide support for people affected by spiritual crisis and I am a Spiritual Emergence Coach registered with the IMHU in the U.S. I am also currently undertaking PhD research into this area through the Applied Psychology department at Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent, UK.

Whatever difficulties or challenges you may be struggling with, my role as a therapist is to guide you away from the struggle and towards flourishing. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the words to describe your experience, they are just labels. Broadly speaking, my work is grounded in the present, whilst being oriented towards the future, and acknowledges, integrates and honors the past.
I hold diploma level qualifications as both a hypno-psychotherapist and a clinical mindfulness teacher. As a psychotherapist I also work extensively with mindfulness-based approaches (such as ACT), and also Compassion Focused Therapy.
I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and I’m approved by Anxiety UK to provide their members with hypnotherapy and compassion-focused therapy for anxiety.
My private practice is in London Bridge and I also offer online therapy sessions. Please do take a look at my web site, or get in touch by e-mail or phone for further information.
