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 academically to learn to think about the significance of experience and beliefs.
I took up philosophical practice as a way to live well in the world with others.
My philosophical counselling practice is a natural extension of this, offering you a safe space to consider your own life and the living of it.

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