Philippa Madden MUPCA BSc (Hons) PGDip
My name is Philippa and I offer a safe and confidential space for one to one counselling and psychotherapy for individuals 18 and over. My practice is located in the heart of Southwark, London in the area of Borough, London Bridge and Elephant and Castle.
I believe that each person that comes to see me is a unique and valuable person, with their own story to tell and so I base my practice on each individual relationship being at the heart of the work. My aim is through dialogue and exploration, to assist and accompany an individual to become more aware of themselves and to gain a sense of autonomy. I feel it is important to form a collaborative partnership with each person, so that together, we can work through any painful or difficult issues which may be a stumbling block for positive change or development.
In our first session, I may ask a few questions in order to get an understanding of how best we can move forward together and whether counselling would be helpful in bringing about positive change. We can decide how long a person wishes to be in therapy and answer any questions you may have about the counselling.
I enjoy and have had extensive experience of working with diversity and therefore; welcome people from all communities, ethnicities, faiths and sexualities to my practice.
