About Me

GENERAL PERSPECTIVE


I have an unshakable belief in the unlimited capacity for peoples' ability to self-heal and self-improve. This informs my practice as a psychotherapist and life coach.


In my approach, it's all about relationships - primarily the relationship you have with yourself and how this impacts the relationships with others and the world. Sometimes these relationships become ruptured and if not repaired, psychological disturbances may result. As a therapist, I will work with you towards restoration and promote psychological well-being and growth. As a life coach, I will facilitate the transformation from the current you to the ideal you, you aspire to be. In both cases, this means helping you to access the necessary inner resources to experience a greater sense of free will and a higher sense of achievement and fulfillment.


CAREER


I developed a stutter as a child that formed a core part of my personality. I became interested in philosophy and psychology in 1991 and became an avid reader. I thought about becoming a therapist but felt my speech would be too much of an impediment so pursued office jobs and worked for a local authority for over two decades. I developed a growth mindset but realised I still maintained a fixed mindset about my career and my speech. I reconsidered training as a therapist and no longer saw my stutter as being an obstacle. While doing my therapy qualification, I started two coaching qualifications. 


PERSONAL INTERESTS


I've had an interest in reading and writing since I was in secondary school. I've written three novels, several short stories and a screenplay. I'm a fan of film and am guilty of occasionally binge-watching the odd boxset.
