Breaking News!


 Because of the Covid 19/ Coronavirus pandemic, some of my work and Dharma activities have temporarily shifted online. I have now cautiously started to see clients face to face at the Grey Door Therapy Clinic again, but I also offer the option of working online. My preferred platform is Skype, so if you want to work with me online, I need you to email me with your Skype i.d., the email for that purpose being dervish.terminal@gmail.com.  if you are already on Skype, the above email is my Skype contact, so you can simply ask to connect that way. if you want to work face to face, email using the form on this website to make contact, and we can set up an appointment on Thursdays or Fridays.


On 18th October 2020, at the Meeting House on Falmer Sussex University campus, I had the honour and delight to receive Dharma transmission from my Zen teacher Jeremy Ryokan Woodcock, Sensei receiving the name Shinkai (Ocean of Fidelity), and being installed as a Sensei (Zen teacher) in my own right.











THE HOVE ZEN & MINDFULNESS SANGHA is now renamed as BOUNDLESS HOVE ZEN, and meets on TUESDAYS, online (7.15-8.45pm). I am not doing BIG MIND on the last Tuesday of the month, until we are back face to face.  The current schedule is to have dokusan (individual interviews) on the second Tuesday of the month, and teishos (Dharma talks) on the third Tuesday of the month.


We are part of the Wild Goose Zen Sangha (www.wildgoosesangha.org) which is part of the White Plum Asanga, the lineage from Taizan Maezumi Roshi.


Chi Gong is in the park if fine (for the time being) but online if the weather is bad on Fridays. Same time 9.30-10.30 am.  If the Covid situation worsens, then we will go back online whatever the weather.



Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is still available on Thursdays and Fridays.  I am back at the Grey Door Therapy Clinic, 1st floor, 36 Blatchington Road, Hove BN3 3YN but I'm also offering online sessions.  Contact me by phone 07758574567 to arrange an appointment.
