I am an experienced Counselling Psychotherapist who can facilitate a confidential, non-judgmental, safe space for you to express your thoughts and feelings.
I am a solution focused individual with empowerment and developing healthy esteem at the heart of my therapy work.
I have experience in providing counselling psychotherapy for depression, anxiety, bereavement, confidence issues, low self-esteem, relationship problems, domestic violence/emotional abuse, sexual trauma and sexual dysfunction, work related stress, eating issues, personality disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and much more.
I specialise in adult survivors of child sex abuse, trauma, sexual assault and domestic violence. I have an additional interest in attachment/separation issues and relational concerns. Culture and identity are also important considerations within my work.
I volunteer for One In Four (a specialised trauma focused charity) and MIND (the leading mental health charity for England and Wales). My private practice is based in Catford and Greenwich.
Psychotherapy enables you to understand your emotions and behaviours, and adapt the way you think to support a process of change that will produce healthy esteem. Healthy esteem is a fundamental element required to develop habitual rational thought processes and helps you to develop positive coping strategies
If you are feeling overwhelmed or depressed, experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety, or maybe you just want a safe space to talk; counselling psychotherapy can be a positive place to help resolve issues that are preventing you from moving forward. Together we can uncover the root causes behind how you are feeling, connecting the pieces of your puzzle to help you feel whole.
About the way I work:
I am an Integrative Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, which means I combine different approaches and styles to tailor the therapy to individual needs. I predominantly integrate:
Psychodynamic approaches; which analytically explore past experiences that may be manifesting in the present. I give insights to enable understanding and personal growth.
Transactional Analysis (TA); which explores the way people communicate with each other. I help to identify ways to communicate more effectively when working through common relationship issues.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT); which aims to identify irrational or negative thoughts that may cause feelings of stress or persistent low mood. I help to modify your thinking patterns to achieve positive cognitions.
“Your vision will become clear
Only when you look into your heart.
Who looks inside,
Awakens” - Carl Jung
I offer both short term (12-24 sessions) and longer term (up to 2 years) psychotherapy, according to individual needs and subject to regular reviews. The duration of sessions are negotiable, with a minimum of 8 sessions to establish a positive working alliance.
About my professional status:
I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and abide by their code of ethics. The organisations I work for are accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I also work within their ethical framework. I receive regular supervision and hold professional indemnity insurance.
