As an Existential Psychotherapist my approach to psychotherapy is philosophically rather than theoretically based. Existential analysis is concerned with being human and all that this entails, especially how we choose to approach the problems and situations that we encounter in the world.
I work through a process of dialogue, by listening and questioning, in order to elicit a description of your experience, to understand you and so that you can better understand yourself and come to terms with the problems you face.
Qualifications & experience
My grounding in the history and methodology of various forms of psychotherapy allows me be an eclectic therapist. I have extensive experience in drug and alcohol addiction, dream exploration, active imagination, therapeutic creative writing and embodied working, both with individuals and groups. I have been practising for over 6 years. According to your needs, the therapy can be long or short-term.
My qualifications include a BA in Human Studies from Marylhurst University in the USA, an MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy with an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy from the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology, Regent's College, London. I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I am a member of the Society of Existential Analysis.
