Welcome to the Transpersonal Healing Website
I am an experienced child, adolescent and adult psychotherapist, registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), trained integratively within the transpersonal tradition.
What is meant by transpersonal healing?
Let’s consider the words themselves:
trans means across, beyond and through. I believe in the importance of not just working with the persona and everyday life, but in journeying into the deeper part of your being; the heart, the soul (or higher self) and ultimately spirit. This can help you to better understand and cope with life’s trials and problems and to develop fully as a human being.
personal means ‘of the nature of a person’. I belive that life’s journey is to discover (or remember) our true nature. If we can get in touch with ‘who we are’ we can become truly authentic in our lives and thus content and happy.
healing means to make whole and healthy; to cure; to restore to soundness. In other words, by integrating the personality with spirit, we can heal all sorts of psychological wounds, such as depression, low self esteem, sexual or relationship difficulties, anxiety, anger, insomnia, eating issues and addictions or just simply a feeling of being directionless or lost.
The spiritual is important, but I also make sure that we do not end up in the clouds. I ensure that the work is kept grounded and practical and helps with everyday difficulties and issues, particularly with children. To this end, as part of my work I offer cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) when appropriate and to those who would like to work that way.
My workshops are designed to help growth, to help people to understand themselves and others better, to help ease stress and to transform.
I hold a certificate and diploma in counselling and psychotherapy and a Masters degree in transpersonal family, child and adolescent therapy. I also hold diplomas in Supervision and Sandplay Studies. I am a former vice chair and at present a member of the management committee of the UKCP Faculty for the Psychological Health of Children.
In addition to my client work, I am a registered supervisor and training supervisor with UKCP. I am also registered as an adult and child clinical supervisor with the Institute for Arts in Therapy & Education (IATE), Newman University, Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) and Unlocking Potential (UP).
