I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, with twenty years experience as a counsellor.
Counselling can greatly increase self awareness, and potentially lead to a deeper, more fulfilled and purposeful life. It can also be a painful process, in which difficult feelings emerge. I aim to help clients explore and contain these feelings in a safe environment. It is important to explore episodes in our past when we are ready to do so, and at our own pace.
I aim to provide a safe, therapeutic and clinically boundaried space, in which a clients can explore the issues that seem most important to them. This is an important part of my counselling philosophy as I believe only a client knows on a deep level which issues to explore. I believe a truer sense of satisfaction occurs when we are in touch with our own individual meaning in life. Counselling can help us discover this true vocation.
I work with clients from all backgrounds, cultures, races, belief systems and sexualities. I respect a client's right to choose his/her sexuality. I work with depression, alcohol, anxiety, relationship problems, couples counselling, childhood abuse, sexuality, stress, low self confidence, anger management, OCD, bullying, childhood trauma, bereavement, employment issues, spirituality and meaning in life.
I have consulting rooms in Clapham and The City. I was manager of a successful alcohol counselling service in South London for nine years, but am now primarily engaged in private practice. I also work as a counsellor in local GP practices.
