I provide confidential, non-judgmental counselling and psychotherapy in a safe and supportive environment at the Awareness Centre in Clapham, London SW4. I use Transactional Analysis (TA) counselling and psychotherapy to help people who are struggling with a range of difficulties to work through their suffering and make changes in their lives.
Most therapy attempts first to gain awareness of your patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, and in order to do this, it is important to establish and develop a strong working relationship, one in which you feel as comfortable as possible to share your difficult thoughts and feelings. I work in a collaborative way to ensure a safe and trusting relationship so that we can together to understand your difficulties, their meaning for you and their impact on your life, as well as deciding on what you want from counselling and therapy.
I use TA to help people gain awareness of and explore their patterns of feelings, thoughts and behaviours in a way similar to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). As a therapist training in relational TA, I believe in the importance of the relationship between therapist and client, and in finding a way of working suited to your individual needs and personal style.
