07412644987 / 07412644987
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist registered with the BACP. I work with individuals on a one-to-one basis once a week in a therapeutic environment. I offer open-ended therapy or time-limited/problem focused therapy for either six or twelve weeks. I have therapy rooms available in Wallington, Sutton.
Working together in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space we will explore the presenting problems you are facing. If working with me short-term then we can focus on a particular problem and find a way for you to manage better. If you are working long-term with me then we can work on a deeper level getting to the root of the re-occurring issues. Each weekly session lasts for fifty minutes, at the same time, in the same place. There will be a one off initial fifty minute assessment before we start our work together, this is to discuss what is going on for you and to make sure we can work well together.
