The wound is the place where the Light enters you – Rumi
What to expect in our first session?
We will meet for initial meeting in order for you to tell me what you would like to work on or wish to explore. It will also help you get a sense of what therapy with me will be like. The standard session time is 60 minutes. I am able offer extended sessions upon request. This may be a good decision if you know you are unable to attend weekly, especially at the start.
What issues or areas of concern can I bring to therapy?
Anything! Human experience is extraordinarily varied!
What does being in therapy mean?
We will both commit to a process of working together even when things feel tough. (It is well-known that things often feel worse before they feel better in therapy.) What I hope to provide you with is a safe, empathetic and non-judgemental space where we begin to explore your anxieties and work towards fostering curiosity and building self-awareness. To ensure that you feel safe and supported in the shared space, please know that everything you share in our sessions will be confidential and be dealt with the utmost care.

How much does therapy cost?
At our first meeting and assuming we decide to work together, we will discuss and agree a fee that will work for both of us.
What is Psychosynthesis?
Created and presented by the late Italian Psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli, Psychosynthesis brings something more to the healing professions than Psychoanalysis. Assagioli did not mean thereby to replace the insights of psychoanalysis, but rather to include the past within the context of the awakening of the Self.
A psychosynthesis process or therapy is adjusted to every person’s individual needs and situation. The tools used are many and psychosynthesis is also open and inclusive so that it can easily be combined with other disciplines or expressions.
Plumbing the depths of the past and healing childhood traumas is as crucial to psychosynthesis as it is to other psychological orientations. In psychosynthesis this uncovering work is carried out within the context of discovering and expressing the rich inner resources of the unfolding Self.
