If you feel that counselling might be help you to overcome a difficult period in your life, I would be pleased to talk to you. I work in an non oppressive way to celebrate the uniqueness of each individual. I use the therapeutic relationship to explore and help clients come to terms with difficulties such as loss, bereavement, feeling stuck in areas of life, feeling unhappy, anxious or depressed. I am an intergrative psychotherapist and MBACP Accredited and UKRCP registered. I offer therapy in a choice of warm and comfortable therapy rooms one in Teddington, which is within easy reach of Teddington or Fulwell Stations. Integrative means working with different aspects of several models of therapy to suit your individual needs. Another room is in Kingston - a walk away from Kingston Station. Therapy can be short term, such as one session, six weeks or long term.
