Hello and welcome. If you're struggling with something in your life or having difficulty coping, then I'd like to help. I am a qualified experienced counsellor who works with a range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems and stress.
Counselling can help you to find an inner strength helping you to manage and reduce stress or anxiety, and make positive change in your life. I work from a warm, comfortable room and provide a safe space for you to explore what is happening in your life. By providing a trusting and accepting environment where you feel valued and understood, we can work together to make the changes you desire.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London and am a member of the BACP. Being an integrative counsellor I tailor my approach to your needs and the issues you are facing.
Through my work with Home-Start I have supported parents who are struggling with the challenges of raising children, holding a job, and adjusting to life as a parent. Parenting can be full of countless pressures and obstacles we are just not prepared for. I also understand the effect these struggles can have on the whole family from my previous experience counselling children at the Place 2 Be.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Carer support
- Child related issues
- Family issues
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
I offer 50 minute sessions at a cost of £45 per session for individuals and £65 for couples. I do offer some spaces at a reduced rate if circumstances require.
I first moved to England 19 years ago from New York. Since then I have also spent some time living abroad in Barcelona, but have called England home since in 2003. I feel my life experiences from each part of the world contribute greatly to how I see the world and to who I am as a counsellor.
Below are some testimonials from past clients...
"I can't thank you enough from the bottom of my heart for helping me finally be free from the terrible illness that is depression. With your help I have got to a place I never thought possible and for the first time ever feel truly free and able to live a happy life"
"Thank you so much for the process you have taken me on over the last year. It has truly been life changing and has really enabled me to find joy, peace and a new enjoyment of life."
"Our sessions have helped me enormously and have equipped me to deal with many difficult situations in a way that has allowed me to process the sadness, but walk away feeling I've made steps in the right direction, with no regrets."
