I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, with 8 years of experience as a practicing mental health therapist. I offer short term counselling or long term psychotherapy sessions in my private practice in Bexley (Mon, Wed, Sat, 8:30- 20:00hrs) and Lewisham (Tue, Fri 9:00-20:00hrs). I have experience supporting people with a range of difficulties from depression, domestic violence, sexual abuse, panic attacks, binge eating, managing stress, bulling, relationship issues, parenting difficulties, sustenance misuse, work related issues, trauma /pTSD, to other diagnosed mental health problems such as manic depression. I have worked in several NHS and private organisations managing and providing mental health recovery support, counselling and psychotherapy services..
I offer weekly sessions for 50 minutes. Fort nightly sessions for 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes). I offer 1:1 sessions, telephone sessions and webcam sessions - to suit my clients needs.
I would meet with you initially for an assessment so you can get to know me and to help me understand your needs. Initial meeting will help you to decide if you would like me to be your counsellor/psychotherapist and for us to explore what support you may need.There is no obligation for you to see me again after this session if you don’t want to!
You may contact me by email with any questions or queries you might have about starting counselling with me, before taking the step to arrange an initial meeting.
I will like to say well done for taking that first step to reach out for help. I wish you find what is it that you are looking for in your journey.
I respect my clients confidentiality. I am open to discuss your mental health issues or your secrets in a calm, non judgmental and supportive environment.
