“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”
In the consultancy, psychotherapy and mentoring that I practise, I help people to clarify how they want to live, and how to live as they want to.
I believe this approach is particularly relevant to working with Dallington mentees as they explore their unique context and approach the future. I see the work of mentoring therefore as one in collaborative search of the creative easement, that sits between curiosity and doubt. I’ve dedicated much of my adult life to an exploration of awareness practices, across a range of cultural, depth psychological and contemplative traditions, and have cultivated daily intentional silence for close to twenty five years alongside family and professional life.
Born and raised in the east end of London, my earliest memories are saturated with a curiosity for the nature of mind, inner life and outer reality. Following an initial career as a derivatives trader on the London derivatives exchange, I’ve developed diversely as a full-time senior psychotherapist and contemplative consultant over the last sixteen years. Unusually qualified in a range of postgraduate psychotherapy approaches, I am experienced in leading and supervising clinical and project teams, as well as building reflective awareness and supportive networks. I have a long consulting history of synthesising post-Jungian, contemplative and Zen ideas with social dreaming methods, as a creative approach to enabling teams to think new thoughts and feel more connected together.
In my spare time, my three teenage children, two dogs and a never ending search for the perfect wave in Cornwall has long kept me honest enough in my pursuit of a meaningful life.
