I am a fully qualified humanistic psychotherapist working with individuals and couples in a warm and insightful way. Relationships, anxiety, parenting, change, depression and anger are some of the issues I specialise in.
I have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2004. I am supported in this work by my extensive training in humanistic and integrative psychotherapy. As a humanistic psychotherapist I offer a non-judgemental, understanding experience to help you recognise how past experiences have shaped you and to help you find within yourself what you need to manage what you find difficult in the present. I start with where the person is in the process of coming to terms with an issue or experience. I won't try to fit someone into a pre-existing model of growth or change.
I draw on a wide range of techniques in my work depending on what seems to me to be the most suitable at the time. Therapy sessions involve talking: they may also involve drawing, visualisation, somatic work and other exercises.
Before I set up my therapy practice I worked as a college lecturer, school teacher, university lecturer, social policy researcher and environmentalist. I have over 25 years' experience of working in London with young people, adults and children from a diverse range of cultural and social backgrounds.
I am a mother and am passionate about exploring with parents and carers how they can create happier families. I am also passionate about supporting couples to have more satisfying relationships.
At our first meeting you will have an opportunity to talk about what has brought you to seek counselling and psychotherapy. We will look at what you want for yourself from our work together and you will be able to experience how I work.
