PSYCHOSYNTHESIS THERAPY: find your “you”
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”rumi
Imagine that you are looking in a mirror that is dirty and maybe has cracks in it. The image looking back at you will be a distorted version of you. If you believe that what you see is the real you, this will impact how you are in the world and how you connect with the people around you.
Discover and accept the whole of you
I hear the expression “Just be you” so many times, but this is not an easy thing to do for many humans. In fact, from the moment we are born, without even realising it, we get bombarded with conditional messages about how we should be: gender norms, beauty and performance expectations, family, cultural, and spiritual beliefs. Therefore the person you are today is a result of all your unique life experiences. Some of these experiences might have been beautiful and supportive, some quite painful and scarring. And they helped you develop deep buried beliefs about yourself, the world, and what love is or what is not; think of them as the dirt or cracks in the mirror.
Fall in love with your imperfections
Throughout your life, various parts of yourself have developed to help you deal with these experiences. However, these parts will have different and sometimes contradictory beliefs and “wants” about life and are hiding underneath your challenges. They have formed at various stages in your life and have their own story to tell. I will give you a safe and nurturing space to help you understand how they developed and allow their stories to unfold in a way that feels right for you. I will be by your side as you begin to clean your mirror and discover your true self.
I believe that your struggles and challenges are not diseases that need curing but are clues about something trying to emerge in your life
The therapy model I use is Psychosynthesis, a transpersonal psychology model. Psychosynthesis is a beautiful blend of psychology and un-dogmatic spirituality. I see the human journey from two perspectives. A human being is a Soul on a journey of Self-discovery with a unique purpose and meaning in this life. A human being has challenges and struggles in her life to overcome so that she can fulfil that purpose. I see my role as guiding you to explore your challenges and discover that purpose.
Our work will be more long-term and in-depth. We will explore your struggles to get to the root of what is causing them. I use a neurodiverse framework holding the belief that every person is unique. Furthermore, I use a holistic view that includes the connection between the mind, body and feelings. My work is intuitive, and apart from talking therapy, I might use creative techniques, meditation and energy therapy to help you explore your challenges and inner world.
I will guide you to
Explore your limiting beliefs about yourself and the world
Understand what is hiding underneath your struggles & anxieties
Get to know & accept the whole of you, not just the parts that people want to see
Fall in love with yourself: your body, your mind and your Soul

reiki / energy therapy: heal your body and mind
Eastern traditions believe that energy exists in everything, all around and inside of us. This energy flows when everything is in harmony, in nature and inside our bodies.
I believe various health conditions can manifest in the body when there is an emotional or mental imbalance
Reiki was developed in Japan in the 1920s by Mikao Usui and is an energy healing therapy method that optimises the body’s natural healing ability. The trained practitioner passes on the Reiki energy to the receiver through their hands. This energy is like the energy that flows naturally through the human body; for this reason, it is considered a safe practice for everyone.
I practice Jikiden Reiki which does not contain Western influences or modifications. I have had health issues myself in the past and have personal experience of just how unbelievably helpful Reiki can be. I now use those experiences to help others.
During a Reiki session, I will use my hands to find and focus on the areas in your body that have byosen, which are areas with toxins and blockages. I perform the treatment with you fully dressed, and you can either lie down on a (treatment) couch or sit on a chair. Each course of treatment is unique, and the number of sessions needed will depend on how your body responds to Reiki. The length of a session is usually between one hour to ninety minutes. I recommend a minimum of 2 sessions of 60 min each.
For people who find it hard to come for in-person treatment sessions for whatever reason, I also offer distance Reiki called Enkaku. Distance Reiki works in the same way as the in-person sessions. I will use my hands to feel and send Reiki to the areas in your body where there are blockages. At an agreed date and time when you can take some time to yourself and relax without being disturbed by anyone, we begin the treatment when you are lying in a comfortable position.
Reiki can support people with various physical or psychological issues. However, I personally only work with psychological challenges if the receiver is undergoing personal psychotherapy with a therapist. My psychotherapeutic counselling background and experience can help you to explore anything that comes up for you during the Reiki sessions.
I offer a free 15 min consultation.
Enkaku/ distance Reiki availabe for men as well.
