About me

Counselling and You
Counselling is intentional time set aside for you to be with yourself, have a feel of how you're doing and where you're heading in your life. Seeking counselling can in itself be empowering as you might get a sense of stepping back and getting hold of things.

My approach
I give my full and undivided attention to you and the difficulty that brought you to counselling. Starting from a place of accepting you and your choices might get us a bit further already in helping you feel more content and connected. I support you to identify what you hope to get out of coming to see me and explore how you and I work towards that. My approach is grounded in the thought that deepening awareness leads to change and with greater awareness comes more choice.

How do I know that you're the right counsellor for me?
You probably don't just yet. I offer an initial session for a lower rate. This gives you a chance to air the difficulty you're experiencing and have a sense of how I work.

How many sessions do I need?
I suggest 6 sessions to start with to give you a sense of what working with me might be like and that whether you wish to end or continue. This can support you in navigating through a particular difficulty, if you then decide to continue you have time and space to look at your life in a broader context. You can start and end counselling at any point.

Starting Counselling
Email me through here to book an initial session. You can also visit my website - beingwithcounsellinglondon.com and message through there. It only takes a minute or so and I'll get back to you in 24 hours.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a professionally trained and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for good practice.

I hold a BACP accredited Diploma in Gestalt Counselling and I attend regular clinical supervision with a senior psychotherapist, as it is requested by BACP guidelines.

I have experience working with people whose difficulties are around their identities as well as with people whose identities are completely incidental to what they wish to seek support for.
I’m currently part of the East London Out Project, where I see LGBTQ+ people for initial sessions.

I pay sensitive attention to difference, an appreciation of diversity is central to my practice and fundamental to my personal life.
