I provide a supportive and facilitative counselling service, where you may explore and work through your concerns in a manageable and timely way, that best suits your needs and requirements.
My approach to counselling and therapy is person-centred in that I respect and encourage your autonomy within the therapeutic process at all times, but work in an integrative way where attention is given to the whole person, (i.e. physical, emotional, your thoughts, experiences and perceptions), whilst drawing from a range of therapeutic approaches, depending on your needs and requirements.
I am also able to help if you wish to explore and gain deeper insight in to your spiritual life (Christian) alongside other issues, drawing on a well established and acknowledged integrative Christian model of counselling, which can form part of the therapeutic process if so desired by you.
Both time limited and more open ended psychotherapy is available, depending on your requirements.
Time limited counselling is offered when you may wish to attend for only a certain amount of sessions (say 10 to 12) in order to focus on a particular issue.
Longer term psychotherapy is offered if you wish to explore and work through deeper issues in a more timely and explorative way.
Our first meeting will provide us with an opportunity to explore what you are looking for and for you to learn something of how I work and whether I could be of help to you. I would also want to learn more about you and what is troubling you.
Counselling is a process which can help in bringing about desired changes for you, your life and relationships. In time, a growing self-awareness may emerge, enabling you to see more clearly beliefs you may have been holding about yourself or patterns of behaviour you may have adopted, which have hindered you or created difficulties for you. By gaining deeper insight and understanding, this can enable you to experience being more at the helm, with a greater ability to make more informed and confident choices for your life and relationships.
My counselling room is located at North Bank House, 28 Pages Lane, Muswell Hill, London, N10 1PP.
I also work in the Harrow area and my counselling room is located at: c/o The Body Factory, 105 Nibthwaite Road, Harrow, Middlesex, HA1 1TE.
