Counselling and therapy in Ealing, Notting Hill and London Bridge
Welcome to my site!
I am a fully qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor and have an established private practice in Ealing and Notting Hill, both in West London.
I have 13 years experience working with a variety of individuals with myriad presenting problems within a transpersonal framework.
Today's world seems to reflect a time of deep individual and collective crises at a fundamental level, and thereupon more people are seeking counselling that includes a transpersonal vision, a 'Soulful Vision'.
You may be caught either in an exhaustive cycle of struggle that leaves you feeling unable to cope or in a cycle of repeating patterns and behaviours that leaves you feeling deeply dissatisfied, wondering where you are going in your life and perhaps to what extent you are fulfilling your potential.
Such distress and suffering often suggests that you are solely identified with your emotions, beliefs, behaviours and/or roles in life as if being in a survival trance. In this state, you are reacting to life's events from only a limited perspective, disconnected from a sense of centre, your Inner Self.
My training in Psychosynthesis counselling and my working philosophy as a counsellor are grounded in the transpersonal, which sees each soul as being on a journey seeking purpose and meaning ... a journey in which the obstacles thrown up by life's circumstances can be experienced as gateways to change and growth.
Distress, personal breakdowns and crises are therefore seen to have a useful purpose in that they:
outmoded pattern is not working anymore.
In the counselling environment, this might entail exploring the unconscious dynamics within your psyche and life that have been affecting and infecting your relationship to self, others, the world and environment.
Such exploration will help uncover unresolved traumas and negative beliefs that you have been holding onto, and which as a result have become obstacles to your growth and well-being. I will then proceed in assisting you towards transforming these obstacles into healthier ways of being and behaving.
Within a warm and gentle guiding approach, I will help you clarify the meaning and purpose to any challenges you may be experiencing. I will subsequently seek to empower you in embracing the inevitable change so that you may:
Loss, Relationship Breakdown, Sexuality Issues, Anger, Addictions...
[This list is by no means exhaustive].
Mindfulness, Aliveness, Enthusiasm, Inner Power, Creativity, Confidence...
At first glance, the thought of such exploration may or may not feel a little daunting, and indeed, counselling requires a firm commitment from yourself as you may have to face up to previously repressed hurts. However, both my personal and professional experience as a counsellor tells me that embarking on such a journey does facilitate the emergence of a centre that generates the process of healing and transformation. Indeed, my philosophy is that deep within each person lies a unique wisdom together with the answers they seek to deal with their concerns.
