'Anshin' is a Japanese word often found in Buddhist literature meaning 'peaceful mind' or 'heart at peace'.
How I Work
My aim is to integrate a coherent combination of cognitive, emotional and somatic, trauma-focused approaches within a supportive therapeutic relationship to help facilitate new meaning, new possibilities and new choices to enable you to live a more fulfilling, meaningful and liberated life.
Hi and welcome to my website. I’m guessing you’re here because you’re looking for help for yourself or a loved one. Let me say a little about myself.
I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist, trauma and EMDR therapist with over 40 years’ experience of working in mental health with a wide range of issues. Based in Banbury, Oxfordshire I can help people who have experienced trauma or abuse. You may have been told that you have a personality disorder. Many people who have been told they have a personality disorder have experienced abuse or neglect in their childhood.
I am a secular Buddhist and for me Buddhism is a spiritual training and practice and not a religion. I have found that meditation practice and the study of Buddhism has greatly affected my life. A large part of my life is my therapeutic work and time and time again Buddhist ideas have shown up for me and my clients. I combine the philosophical and contemplative practices of Buddhism with western psychology and neuroscience to inform my trauma work.
