I am a counsellor practicing in the South West London area. I aim to provide effective counselling within a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment. I offer individual counselling in Wimbledon, Richmond and Surbiton all easily accessible and close to public transport.
If you are looking at this site, perhaps your life is at a crisis point or you are sensing a lack of meaning and the old patterns and behaviours are no longer working. You might be looking for someone to talk to and wondering where to begin.
Counselling can help with this.
Choosing a counsellor can be a difficult process and needs careful consideration. I offer a service which fits your individual needs - a space in mutual relationship where we could work on whatever you bring. I believe it is the quality of the relationship between us that remains the heartbeat of the work we explore. What happens between us is also part of the exploration, as it can shed light on other relationships & experiences, past and present.
I draw upon Psychodynamic, Jungian, Developmental and Transpersonal perspectives. I take both a relational and analytic approach using these models to look deeply at issues from your past which may be affecting your life in the present. It also helps find meaning in our complicated world, by unpacking and reframing painful experiences. This ‘meaning-making’ approach puts soul at the heart of human growth.
I am passionate about my work and I believe it is effective having witnessed client’s capacity to change and evolve. My philosophy is that the most important is not always what happens to us, but how we live with the experience and learn from the events in our lives.
Background influences on how I work
I have lived in three different countries over time and this has given me an understanding of the unique challenges of culture adjustment, cross cultural relationships, displacement, identity, depression and anxiety that arise from migration. Living within and between different cultures, I welcome diversity of every kind and appreciate both the bounty and the challenges it brings.
My work and life experience is equally diverse – I have worked in banking, the hotel industry and for many years in pharmaceuticals. Alongside I have a deep interest and passion for the arts and interior design. My work background has given me a long established practice of developing one to one relationships and deal with relationship issues which by default became therapeutic. This and a particular interest in self development and esoteric philosophy formed a central belief in the importance of the health of the whole self – mind, body and soul. I was moved to formalise my interest in talking therapy by studying with and qualifying at the Re.Vision Center in North London as a counsellor.
