It’s important to find the right therapist to work with, someone you can feel safe with. Below are some therapists I have worked with in the past and would not hesitate to recommend. Therapists may specialise in certain areas that you feel you need support in, perhaps a childhood trauma or an issue with general anxiety, whatever the issue be sure to do some research and ask potential therapists about their experience in that area.
Good therapists will be attending regular supervision, and taking a healthy interest in CPD (continuing proffessional development) which will keep them up to date with the latest thinking in the industry.
All therapists should also have public liabilty insurance and be a member of a proffessional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP. Choosing therapists who are members of these registers gives you an assurance that they meet the standards of proficiency and ethical practice you would expect.
All therapists should be working in line with an ethical framework – you can read more about the BACP’s ethical framework here
Transpersonal / Psychosynthesis Counsellor
My approach is informed not only by my Psychosynthesis training but by a longstanding interest and involvement in Buddhist psychology and meditation practice, this influence could be summarised in my belief that all beings possess intrinsic goodness; we are fundamentally whole, sane and wise however deluded we may feel day-to-day!

Why come to therapy?
It might seem like there is not that much wrong but something just doesn’t feel right. It might be there is a specific issue that is causing you a problem. It might be that everything feels awful and hopeless.

I have been working as a psychotherapist since 1989. Previously my experience was in teaching and, later, in publishing. I graduated from the institute of Psychosynthesis in 1991 with both a diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling and in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy.
