My practice is informed by lived experience; a great deal of self-experimentation and exploration; a range of educational courses in radical honesty, non-violent communication and wheel of consent; and 7+ years of running workshops and facilitating groups.
I have had a varied career in business development and marketing for 20+ years, living on different continents and collecting many life experiences. I have lived in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Asia.
A personal and financial crisis in 2010, forced me to completely re-evaluate my life and values, begin therapy and dig deep inside for self–awareness and self-love.
In the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, these experiences led me to train in psychotherapy following the Psychosynthesis modality, and formalise what had been a hobby since 2014 (I’ve been giving talks, facilitating discussions and holding workshops about non-monogamy, sex positivity, consent and kink to audiences of up to 300 people). I draw on my training modality, as well as Radical Honesty, Non-violent Communication and Wheel of Consent training.
My therapy is open to anyone, regardless of orientation and identity.
I have particular experience and understanding, working with people who identify as queer, kinky, non-monogamous or neurodivergent.
What is Psychosynthesis?
Psychosynthesis is a holistic approach to psychology that views the human being as a dynamic, evolving system composed of multiple aspects, including the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The concept of Self in psychosynthesis refers to the unique, individual essence of a person that transcends and integrates all of these aspects.
The Self is seen as the center of a person’s consciousness and the source of their personal identity and purpose. It is not to be confused with the ego, which is the limited and temporary sense of self that is based on social and cultural conditioning, past experiences, and personal fears and desires. The Self, on the other hand, is seen as the unchanging, essential nature of the person that is beyond the ego and its limitations.
In psychosynthesis, the goal of personal growth and development is to move towards a greater awareness and integration of the Self. This involves a process of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and self-realization that leads to a more fulfilling, authentic, and meaningful life. Psychosynthesis practitioners work with clients to help them identify and overcome obstacles to Self-realization and to develop the skills and capacities needed to live in alignment with their true nature.
