About me

As an integrative psychotherapist, I offer one to one and couples counselling on both a short- and long-term basis. By ‘integrative’ I mean that I draw upon a mix of the best known modalities depending on the needs of the client.

I have experience dealing with depression; anxiety; marital, family, relationship, illness, cultural and work problems; sexual issues; loneliness; and those seeking greater satisfaction and fulfillment from their lives.

I am most influenced by Person-centred counselling, and Existentialism, and also the work of Carl Jung, Attachment and Psychodynamic theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and issues related to living in unfamiliar cultures.

The most significant common thread through all of the above modalities is the relationship between client and therapist, which I believe is instrumental in the client experiencing positive growth during therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

Currently, I am seeking registration to work with couples (where one partner is suffering from depression) with the Tavistock centre.

I gained my Post-Graduate Diploma (2012), Masters (2016), and Advanced Diploma (2014) in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at Regents' University in London. In 2011, I gained a Certificate in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Mary Ward Centre in London.

I have been working with NHS clients three days a week since 2014 in various West London clinics, and work privately in central London.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

During my time living overseas, and in my NHS work I have gained a lot of experience on the subject of cultural difference and integration particularly for those living abroad. My Masters thesis was entitled Voyages into the Unknown.

Fees

I charge £55 per 50 minute session for day-time work in Clapham. For those on benefits, or studying full-time, I can offer concessionary rates from £40. I offer a reduced fee for telephone or Skype sessions although I recommend and prefer to meet initially in person. Evening sessions come with a £5 surcharge due to the higher room rental.

Further information

Before training to be a psychotherapist, I worked as a print and broadcast journalist for over 20 years. I have lived and worked overseas extensively and am particularly familiar with Eastern, European and Latin American cultures and have a good understanding of Spanish and French.
