Keith is an integrative psychosynthesis psychotherapist, qualifying at the Institute in 1990. I am also a supervisor, accredited by the Institute in 1996. I am BACP senior accredited (no: 508615) and UKCP registered (no: 930276). From 2003-2010 I was training director of the Psychosynthesis Trust, where I am still a trainer and supervisor. For about 10 years up to 2017 I have been Chair of Training Standards of the Humanistic & Integrative College of UKCP. I am currently completing Roger Evans’s 5DL coaching training. My other field is I am a qualified and registered Alexander Technique practitioner. For many years I have also been a Clinical Associate of Pink Therapy, a network of senior practitioners working with LGBT issues. In terms of therapy and supervision work, I would describe myself as a generalist, with specialisms in the areas of self-esteem, sexuality, relationships and life crises. I work mainly from home in the Rotherhithe/Bermondsey area, and at the Psychosynthesis Trust near London Bridge. (The latter offers disabled access.) My regular fee is £65 per hour for individuals, and £80 for couples, but can make reductions by arrangement.
Psychosynthesis practitioner, facilitator and guide. I began my professional career as a practising lawyer but branched out into other interests while living abroad with my husband and children. A ‘spiritual awakening’ in Indonesia eventually led me to train in psychosynthesis and from that time I have committed to a deepening of my experiential understanding of ‘Self.’ Since qualifying as a psychosynthesis psychotherapist in 2005, I have added energy therapy, Mindfulness practice and a training in supervision to my portfolio. Nowadays I balance a career in novel-writing with family life, and a thriving private practice in Penn (near High Wycombe), Buckinghamshire. I have a particular interest in the creative process, and use of the imagination in therapeutic healing.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a specific type of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy developed in the late 1980s by psychologist Marsha M. Linehan to help better treat borderline personality disorder. Since its development, it has also been used for the treatment of other kinds of mental health disorders.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD, ABPP. It emphasizes individual psychotherapy and group skills training classes to help people learn and use new skills and strategies to develop a life that they experience as worth living. DBT skills include skills for mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.
Why does DBT teach skills?
Problematic behaviours evolve as a way to cope with a situation or attempt to solve a problem. While these behaviours might provide temporary relief or a short-term solution, they often are not effective in the long-term. DBT assumes that clients are doing they best they can, AND they need to learn new behaviours in all relevant contexts. DBT helps enhance a client’s capabilities by teaching behavioural skills in areas like mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills help people develop effective ways to navigate situations that arise in everyday life or manage specific challenges.

‘When the existence and marvellous power of the deeper self is recognised, the “Know Thyself” of the Delphic Oracle acquires a new and profounder meaning. It no longer means only “analyse your thoughts and feelings and actions”, it means study your most intimate self, discover the real being hidden in the depths of your soul, and learn its marvellous potency.” This quote from Roberto Assagioli is one of my favourite and says it all.
