With over 10 years experience as a professionally qualified psychotherapist/counsellor I aim to offer a safe, confidential, reflective space for you to explore emotional difficulties/feelings/anxieties/situations that might be overwhelming or preventing you from managing life as you were once before.
I believe it is very important to meet for an initial consultation(s) before anything else, because a consultation is a space to find out if I can help you and if you feel comfortable talking to me.
I work with many presenting problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, relationship difficulties, loneliness or may be you are not sure what is wrong but know you are not feeling yourself?
I have over 10 years experience working as a therapist. My training was indepth and extensive lasting about 7 years.
I first qualified as a Psychodynamic Counsellor (which is a rigorous 5 years of training at WPF), and then I continued in further extensive training at WPF and qualified as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, licensed to work in twice a week therapy. WPF is one of the most respected training bodies in London.
I am also a qualified supervisor to counsellors and psychotherapists. OCN Cert in Counselling Supervision.
