I am a counsellor/psychotherapist, supervisor, and trainer. Having qualified with a first class honours degree, I now have almost six years experience in the field, working in the UK and in the Netherlands with individuals, couples and groups.
Perhaps you're looking for a therapist because you're confused, down or frustrated... Or maybe something just doesn't feel right but you don't know what. Either way, I'd be happy to help. I counsel face-to-face in East London (Aldgate) and online via Skype.
I frequently support people through the following difficulties. This list is by no means exhaustive, however, so feel free to get in touch if you don't see what you are looking for and we can discuss:
- relationship problems
- feeling low or depressed
- loss - of any form
- a general feeling of dissatisfaction and/or confusion.
My website www.chandcounselling.co.uk gives more detail, including a copy of the counselling agreement that I tend to work to. Alternatively, please get in touch if you have questions.

The first session is £40 (slightly reduced rate) for you to see if you feel comfortable with me. Shop around if not! There is no obligation to continue beyond this.
If we do decide to continue working together, fees are as below. I offer a scale of fees, for example £50-60, hopefully to better suit your circumstances.
London E1 Essex or Online
London E1 Essex or Online
Groups (to learn about/improve/practise communicating and managing difficult interpersonal situations):
£25 per person.
FYI my website refers to the E1 location because as I spend more days per week there. Apart from fees all other aspects of my practice are consistent between locations.
I hope that the reduced fee initial session supports you to find the right therapist for you: research-wise, the click between you and your chosen therapist comes up consistently as the most important factor in you meeting your aims.
