Philosophical counselling

Philosophical counselling is close and careful conversation to find one’s own way in a troubled world – a meaningful and emancipating alternative to psychotherapy. No academic philosophy required! 

 

Welcome to Philosophy in Practice

I began to study philosophy to understand my own experiences and beliefs. 
I took up philosophical practice as a way to live well in the world. 
My philosophical counselling practice is a natural extension of this.

I have been counselling and writing about philosophical practice since 2002.
