A very warm welcome to my hub!
I am a fully qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor and Transpersonal Coach with an established private practice in Ealing, West London. I have 17 years experience working with a variety of individuals with myriad issues explored within a transpersonal / psychospiritual framework.
Indeed today’s world seems to reflect a time of deep individual and collective crises at a fundamental level, and thereupon more people are seeking methods of Counselling and Coaching that includes a transpersonal / psychospiritual approach, 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 or perhaps to what extent you are fulfilling your potential.
Such distress and suffering often suggests that you are inadvertently identified with an outdated mindset - emotions, beliefs, behaviours and/or roles - that detain you in a survival trance.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.
This is where a transpersonal or psychospiritually based therapy can greatly help with healing, acting as a reparative process within your life and psyche. Psychosynthesis is such a therapy and is thus much more than the more traditional and conservative Counselling and Coaching.
Psychosynthesis therapy is an opportunity to delve deep into your Soul, entailing a journey within to retrieve dormant parts of yourself , discover new latent ones and integrate their richness into your life. It speaks indeed of a re-connection to the mysterious and sacred that is becoming ever so precious and essential in this chaotic, overly-materialistic and banal world we live in.
“ Psychosynthesis is a method of psychological development and Self-realisation. For those who refuse to submit passively to the play of forces which is going on within them. And are determined to become the masters of their own lives. “
- Roberto Assagioli -
I offer either Psychosynthesis Counselling or Transpersonal Coaching as a specific style of therapy for you to choose, or you can have both models of therapies together.
Psychosynthesis is a psychospiritual therapeutic psychology developed by Dr. Roberto Assagioli last century. This often coined, “Psychology with a Soul”, is holistic in nature in that it includes mind, heart, body and spirit.
Transpersonal Coaching is a Psychospiritual Coaching method that speaks to the Heart and Soul of individuals. Its aim is to assist individuals in their personal, relational, professional and spiritual growth.
My passion lies in guiding people awakening to their true selves and helping them align to their truest wishes for their lives.

Simple yet powerful little exercises to strengthen the connection to your own inner wisdom - and to receive “quick`and effective daily guidance...
My training in Psychosynthesis counselling and my working philosophy as both a counsellor and coach are grounded in the transpersonal, which sees each individual on a journey seeking purpose and meaning although oftentimes unconsciously. 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, albeit difficult, are thus seen to have a higher purpose of healing in that they:
- Act as a warning signal that a particular way of functioning, an outmoded pattern is not working anymore.
- Gives us an opportunity to re-examine ourselves with a view to change and unfold.
In the counselling environment, this might entail exploring the unconscious dynamics within both 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. The latter thus becomes in effect the coaching process.
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:
- Overcome Depression, Hurts, Traumas, Loneliness, Stress, Anxiety, Grief, Loss, Relationship Breakdown, Sexuality Issues, Anger, Addictions... [This list is by no means exhaustive].
- Overcome obstacles to your Growth
- Connect to your Inner Self
- Connect to qualities of Joy, Serenity, Love, Compassion, Wisdom, Mindfulness, Aliveness, Enthusiasm, Inner Power, Creativity, Confidence...
- Awaken to your Potential
- Have Authentic and Fulfilling Relationships
- Experience a better Quality of Life, a Sense of Belonging and Well-Being
- Embody self-esteem and soul-esteem
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. Nevertheless, both my personal and professional experience as a counsellor and coach continually show me that embarking on such a quest does generate deep healing and profound transformation.
