I can’t recommend Mark highly enough.
His approach is grounded on genuine care and generousity, guided by curiosity, respect, and openness and the ability to weave multiple modalities and paradigms with fluidity and ease.
Mark has a very playful and dynamic way of leading me through the many voices of my psyche.
By the end, I felt empowered and connected with my self leadership.
In a short amount of time I could sense my awareness and clarity growing: the strength of my voice was gradually amplified and my inner resources were strengthened and expanded.
What to Expect
Care, curiosity, empathy and creativity are at the heart of my work.
I’m a registered psychotherapist in the UK. My approach is based on Process Oriented Psychology, my clinical practice in the NHS and my qualifications, studies and research in Embodiment and Wellbeing. I use an integrative approach to meet each person individually and to help people overcome difficulties and to find meaning, ease and happiness.
I deeply believe that people already have what they need. That by bringing a gentle curiosity to all parts of our existence, and by trusting the creative pattern that underlie often seemingly disturbing, chaotic or painful experiences, a way forward will emerge organically. This is not to belittle the difficulties and pain that you might experience. More that by becoming aware of all our thoughts, our body experiences and life situations, both the welcome and unwelcome ones, new ways will emerge. And of course it is important to work with what feels right and appropriate for you, and you can expect a safe, non-judgemental and empathetic space to process and journey.
Awareness of the dynamics of power and privilege in our society, as well as in the therapy room, are important underpinnings of my work. I specifically welcome people from marginalised or racialised groups, and actively work on an awareness of my own socialisation, actions and privileges.
From our work together you can expect to:
Uncover patterns that are holding you back
Gain Peace of Mind, Freedom and Respect
Process and find purpose in your pain
Find meaning and insights
Identify changes to be made
Clarify hopes, goals and aspirations
Feel Connectedness and Purpose
