I am an integrative registered Counsellor / Psychotherapist working in London.
Is life becoming more problematic?
Struggling to manage or understand your feelings?
My experience of working with people over many years as an Integrative humanistic Counsellor / Psychotherapist leads me to recognize and value the ability of each individual to heal.
In my practice I provide a confidential safe environment to explore, reflect and promote wellbeing.
I have been working for over twenty years with individuals struggling with various forms of addiction. However, I also work with people facing issues such as: Emotional trauma, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, sexual identity and anger management.
I am also trained to work with survivors of violence, trauma, abuse and experiences connected to post-traumatic stress disorder. My experience is reflected through my acceptance (and familiarity) with all sexual and cultural differences which I value and place at the core of my work.
I run a private practice in Central London working with both individuals and couples were I adapt my therapeutic integrative approach according to client needs. I also work for WDP Recovery London, a therapeutic day-programme as both an individual Psychotherapist and group facilitator. Furthermore I have worked long-term as a trauma specialist therapist for Women & Girls Network at their West London Rape Crisis Centre.
