Astrology is the study of the positions and movement of the stars and planets, and the meaning-filled links these make with life on earth. No causal relationship is implied - ‘our stars’ don’t make things happen, but rather reflect or correspond with who we are. Each planet shares an essence with those objects, activities, feelings etc of the same nature; they all move, as it were, in synch. All life is one. Thus I see Astrology essentially having a poetic nature, not one that is material, causal or scientific. A brief description of astrology can be found here.


Welcome to my website. I trust it will give you a bit of an idea of who I am, what motivates and interests me, how I work with astrology, and how I might be of service to you. Whilst my love of people means I enjoy seeing clients and students in-person, almost all my client work and some of my teaching can be carried out remotely using Skype, FaceTime, Zoom etc.


Originally trained in Psychological Astrology and having started my counselling practice in the late 1990s, I have developed over the years an abiding interest in more traditional forms: horary questions, electional work, mundane and business astrology - all of which I offer to clients. I have taught astrology at all levels. You can read up more about me on my About Me page.

Ignorant before the heavens of my life,
I stand and gaze in wonder. Oh the vastness
of the stars. Their rising and descent. How still.
As if I didn’t exist. Do I have any
share in this? Have I somehow dispensed with
their pure effect? Does my blood’s ebb and flow
change with their changes? Let me put aside
every desire, every relationship
except this one, so that my heart grows used to
its farthest spaces. Better that it live
fully aware, in the terror of its stars, than
as if protected, soothed by what is near.
— Rainer Marie Rilke
