Difficulties with relationships, depression, anxiety, morbid/suicidal thoughts, work related problems and substance misuse. I use a relational-integrative approach to counselling and Psychotherapy.
I support individual adults and older adolescents in Central London W1 and South London SW9.
I offer short-term (solution focused: typically 1, 6 or 12 sessions) and open-ended/long-term (depth work) interventions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Integrative-Psychodynamic Counsellor (Metanoia Institute/Middlesex University), with over fifteen years experience working within the caring professions. This includes supporting young people, families and adults within social care, youth justice & substance misuse services.
Previous to training as a Counsellor and psychotherapist, I have completed both a Bsc and MA in Psychology, and throughout my career I have completed a range of specialist training's aimed directly at supporting those with emotional, social and mental health difficulties. For example, I have received training's in ADHD, Addiction, Family breakdown/Parenting support and Counselling for Depression.
In addition to my private practice I manage a team of Counsellors deliver short-term individual therapy within the NHS. This service is for adults who are seen across G.P. surgeries in the London Borough of Lambeth.
I also have a professional background in Health and Fitness including being a Head Squash coach. This following being brought up in a family where engaging in a diverse range of sports and activities was always encouraged meaning I have always, and continue to, enjoy sport. Currently, my main sport is cycling, including perhaps the highlight of my sporting achievement: cycling from Landsend to Rome back in 2003.
With my interest in sport and physical health alongside my career in emotional and mental health, along with many other influences, I have become increasingly aligned with nondualism and its underlying approaches to science, philosophy and theology. And, furthermore I recognize this perspective as central to the healing process.
