About me

Location: South West London, SW4, Stockwell.

I am a fully qualified person-centred  counsellor, graduated from an accredited course, as well as being a registered member of  the BACP and abide by their codes of ethics.

I offer warmth, empathy and a non-judgmental attitude which are the key components of my approach in counselling.  I can enable you  to explore your presenting issues which might currently bringing you to counselling. It is a collaborative process.

My approach is non-directive and client centred whereby you are in charge of your session which in itself can be enpowering. Thus, my role as a counsellor is to accompany you on that journey of self discovery, I am here to walk with you at your own pace.

From time to time, everyone experiences events which are stressful. In particular when stress makes us feel out of control, it can get increasingly difficult to see the wood for the trees. Counselling can give you a space to see things in perspective and help you to find balance.

I truly believe in individual potential for change and growth. It is with this in mind that I will encourage you to come up with your own solutions to your behavioural and/or emotional difficulties.   In the process , counselling can help you to find the strength to overcome the difficulties and the feelings that accompany them.

What I offer
I can offer one-to-one, short to long term therapy tailored to individual's need in both English and French for the following:

  • low self-esteem
  • identity issues
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • abuse
  • gender identity
  • bereavement & loss
  • sexuality

Initial session
I offer an introductory session during which we will focus on exploring what brings you to counselling and what are your expectations, as well as some practical matters such as:

  • discussing of contract
  • confidentiality
  • fees
  • scheduling
  • and cancellation of sessions.

The initial session will also give you the opportunity to ask further questions and ensure that the person-centred approach is suitable for your needs. And though the assessment is different from a counselling session, it still might give you a feel as to whether we can establish a working therapeutic relationship.
