How I and my psychotherapy sessions work

I differ from more traditional psychotherapists who like to focus solely on people’s personality problems. I aim at working with people’s issues is to address them against the background of recognising that they also possess a heart and soul which require factoring into the equation. As people learn to open up to these deeper dimensions of themselves, they often find that many of their problems clear up much more quickly and naturally because of it. I draw upon 35 years of experience as coach, psychotherapist, relationship counsellor and spiritual educator.


To complement my one on one work I also offer spiritual group retreats and individual intensive programmes. On these courses people come and stay with me for a week in Majorca and engage in a deep exploration of all areas of their lives.

As I work both in Mallorca and Central London; sessions may be both face to face and on Skype. I charge on a sliding scale of £200 to £100 for a full hour – but nobody who is low waged is turned away. I also offer ninety minute sessions to those who find these extra thirty minutes make all the difference. You may pay after each session or at the end of the month.

First of all I propose an initial meeting free of charge – either on Skype or face to face. This enables you to discover if you wish to work with me, and me to see if I am able to help you.

I also offer free e-mailing in between sessions. If there are things that aren’t clear or new insights emerge, feel free to get in touch with me.

Contact me on, giving me your phone number and I will ring you back.
