Aside from therapy itself, I have two passions: being outdoors & existential philosophy. These hugely inform my work as a therapist and over the years I have developed a way of working that synthesises existential and eco-based therapies. In a nutshell, I consider myself an existentially informed outdoor therapist.

I am particularly interested in the way that we (humans) make sense of our lives, how we take responsibility for our place in the world, and how we can come to terms with things that we do, and do not have control over.

Some people are looking for a directive experience in therapy (solutions, techniques, and exercises, etc.) however, generally speaking, I don’t work in this way. I instead opt for a gentle and supportive investigation in the ‘thrownness’ of ‘Being’ to help you discover new perspectives and develop a greater understanding of self. No diagnosis or pathologising, just simple curiosity and reflection in a confidential, supportive, boundaried, and non-judgemental space. My work is primarily outdoors, drawing on ecopsychological theory to ground the process in a way that brings it more in line with our fundamental Human-ness

I currently work with adults, and I am happy to offer my Counselling service to anyone 16 years or older.
