I am an experienced BACP Accredited psychotherapist, supervisor and spiritual mentor working in Malvern in the UK, or on Skype.
People come for psychotherapy when they are feeling stuck, or sick and tired of an ongoing issue. Some are at crisis point. They have relationship issues with their partners, family or friends, they are anxious, depressed or stressed, they are struggling with addictions or low self-esteem, they are dealing with abuse from the past or they have other issues. They might also be seeking a life more full of meaning, or to explore their spiritual lives.
In therapy you will find a safe space where we can begin to untangle the knots and find new ways of seeing things and of taking action. Held by safe boundaries, your story will unfold over time and you will be able to make clearer decisions about how you go forwards. It’s not always an easy process, but therapy will reach places that it’s very difficult to reach in any other way (e.g. by getting support from friends).
I work from a humanistic perspective, and I am influenced by Buddhist psychology. I have faith in our capacity to change, whilst being realistic about how difficult this can be. I enjoy my work and see it as a great privilege.
I am a BACP Accredited therapist, and have been working in private practise since 1997. My orientation is integrative, and I am influenced by person-centred, existential and Buddhist thinking. In 2011 I completed further psychotherapy training with the Amida Trust and in 2012 a supervision training influenced by Buddhist thinking. I am a Buddhist priest with the Amida Order and run a temple in Malvern with my husband Kaspa.
