Profile

I am not a conventional teacher or therapist. I do not really like the terms teacher or therapist. I rather think of myself as an old friend who wants to help.

Any wisdom or knowledge I have acquired has come out of personal necessity. In my mid twenties I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Soon after my wife became very ill with Bipolar Disorder. The chaos and suffering that these illnesses produced impelled me to seek out sources of healing.

After much reading, listening and learning I began to create meditations and therapeutic exercises. To my surprise practicing these creations regularly relieved much of my anxiety, depression and trauma. They also enabled me to directly access the awareness of awakening, instilling a deep sense of peace, wellbeing and meaning. Ten years on, in my mid thirties, I feel confident to share with others what I have learnt.

I have two qualifications that I acquired in just over a year. They are a Level 4 Diploma in CBT & Counselling and a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Diploma. I have been practicing since the start of 2021 and have found great gratification in helping others and have received positive feedback from many clients.

About the Nondual Approach

The Practice Of Nondual Awakening
It can be helpful to view the awareness of nondual awakening like the sun.  It is always present but can be obscured by clouds of thought and the darkness of suffering. The aspiration of nondual practice is to clear up the clouds and reduce the darkness so that the sun can naturally emerge…

The peace of mindful presence can reduce thoughts and emotions.
The wisdom of nondual wholeness can relieve inner and outer conflict.
The freedom of awakened awareness can transcend self-centred limitation.

Stage One - Mindful Presence

Learn to return to the present moment with mindful attention and gratitude.

The motivation is simple. The more time spent in the present, the less time spent suffering. The less time spent in the present, the more time spent suffering. Recognise there is a choice to be made every moment.

Stage Two - Find Inner Peace

Bring peace to your inner world with kindness, understanding and compassion.

All parts of you want to survive, decrease suffering, connect, create and increase happiness. They just go about it differently. When you allow every part freedom of expression, peace talks and common ground can be found, paving the way for inner democracy.

Stage Three - Access Inner Wisdom

Live from a wholeness that is deeper, higher and beyond your surface thoughts and emotions.

You have spent over ten thousand hours being you, which suggests that you are an expert in being you. You know best how to heal, how to grow, how to live your best life. You just need to learn how to access this deeper knowing and act from its guidance.

Stage Four - Transcend Inner-Outer Duality

Shift from the entrapment of self-awareness to the freedom of non-self awareness.

You can return to the ease, simplicity and immediacy of childhood. You can bring about a lack of selfness that naturally emerges a loving selflessness. You can break through to the oneness of experience that marries you and humanity, you and other beings, you and the universe.

Stage Five - Access Nondual Awareness

Live from an awareness that is deeper, higher and beyond your ego-based limitation.

Have you ever got the feeling that there is something greater than yourself?  What if ‘yourself’ is your sense of self?  What if the ‘something greater’ is awareness? Maybe the question can be changed. Do you ever get the feeling that there is an awareness greater than your sense of self?

Client Endorsements and Testimonials

I ask for feedback at the end of most sessions.  Here are some responses…

“This does not really feel like therapy, it goes so much deeper, so much faster.”
“I found this difficult at first but over time I trusted you and opened up a bit more.”
“You are very easy to talk to and say things I never would have thought of.”
“When I do not feel good I come back to things we talked about and feel a bit better.”
“Talking to someone else is a great way to stop controlling and let go.”
“I sometimes feel skeptical that this is working but then I realise how far we have come.”
“Having someone who has suffered like I have helps because I know you get it.”
“Your meditations help me access experiences that put all my reading into practice.”
