Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes – C G Jung
For much of my life, two questions have inspired my curiosity. First, why do we think and act the way we do? Second, what is the purpose of life?
My curiosity was kindled by challenges I faced as a young professional living in London. I started my career as a Management Consultant and worked for 11 years within the financial services industry. With the understanding I have today, I can see that I tried to cope with these challenges in a variety of ways, the most important of which was my spiritual belief.
That marked the start of my journey towards my own inner world. Whilst the spiritual teachings provided me with a lot of respite, they didn’t uncover my deepest woundings, as a result of which I had reached a plateau on my spiritual path. I embarked on a healing process when I took the decision to attend the Fundamentals course at the Institute of Psychosynthesis and it evoked a calling in me to help others find their light within.
I am currently training to become a psychotherapist at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London as well as undergoing MBCT teacher training at the University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre. I am also a long term student of the non-dual tradition of Advaita Vedanta.
I chose to train in Psychosynthesis as it is aligned to my core belief that we are all unique and individual souls journeying through life. While Psychosynthesis acknowledges and works with the pain and suffering inherent in the human condition, it also suggests a path for empowering our human ability to create harmony.
As a management consultant, I have worked with a variety of professionals in demanding environments and I understand how the challenges of working in the corporate world can sometimes trigger addictive behaviours, anxiety, depression or even midlife crises.
