I have concluded my formal training in Transactional Analysis Counselling and Psychotherapy at Connexus Institute, England.
I have experience working with individuals and couples from many different walks of life, both in my own consulting room and as a volunteer with the public health sector (NHS) providing counselling to hospice patients, family members and the wider community.
I am a member of the National Counselling Society (NCS), the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA), and the United Kingdom Association of Transactional Analysis (UKATA), to whose codes of ethics I abide.
I am in my early 50’s and I come from a varied cultural background. I have overcome many difficulties myself, have worked in various roles, experienced different cultures and I find it very rewarding to share my experiences with individuals who want to begin a new chapter in their lives. I have been based in Granada for 10 years, where I live with my beloved wife.
My dedication to psychotherapy arose from a life-long inclination to reflect on the extent to which somebody’s upbringing, family impositions and early experiences in life might shape their internal landscapes and the way they carry themselves in the world. I find it very rewarding to support individuals taking control of their lives and stopping undesirable past experiences interfering in their present.
I am very interested in the relational patterns people establish in their infancy and tend to keep in place throughout their lives. The wonderful plasticity of our brains fascinates me, as it makes it possible for us to complete previous developmental stages and free ourselves from painful, repeating patterns in the present.
I feel both humbled by the trust clients place in me and immensely privileged to witness the transformation in their lives.
