- Do you want to feel more confident, resilient and free?
- Are you feeling stuck, lost or overwhelmed?
- Do you have things you can’t talk to your friends or family about?
I’m a qualified, BACP-registered integrative counsellor who can help. I work from locations in Hither Green, Blackheath and Hither Green and provide a warm, safe and non-judgemental space for you to share what’s on your mind.
How I can help you
It can be difficult to make that first step to start counselling. I aim to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you.
Counselling is a talking therapy and I’m trained to support you by listening and helping you to identify patterns of behaviour, thoughts and feelings. This can give you more choice over how you live your life.
I offer a containing presence for you to reflect on anything from relationship problems to anxiety and depression. This can help you to make connections with the past and present and live your life more fully.
Working with you to identify a focus for your counselling, I will help you to get in touch with your inner wisdom as I believe that you are the expert in yourself. The experience of being truly heard can be transformative and help you to see things from different perspectives.
How I’d work with you
I’m an integrative counsellor which means I use different approaches for different people – because I think we're all unique. I combine psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approaches through Petruska Clarkson’s integrative model of counselling and psychotherapy. I’d tailor the way I work with you depending on what you find useful.
I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is the most important aspect of counselling. So I will support you to explore how you relate to me as your counsellor. This will help you to more clearly see how you relate to other people in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I became a counsellor because I am curious about people and what makes us who we are. I’m a trained journalist who works in the charity sector and I started my counselling training at the Minster Centre in North West London. I went on to study person-centred counselling at City Lit and completed a BACP-accredited professional diploma in integrative counselling at the Mary Ward Centre. I’ve also completed training in bereavement and working with trauma.
I have worked as a counsellor at a bereavement service in Kentish Town, offering long and short term counselling to bereaved clients from a range of backgrounds and ethnicities. I also work as a counsellor in the NHS at a GP practice in Putney where I work as part of a primary care team and offer short term therapy to clients with complex needs.
I run my private counselling practice from rented space in three locations, Kentish Town, Hither Green and Blackheath.
I’m a registered member of the BACP and follow their ethical framework. I believe that people from all backgrounds can benefit from counselling and am committed to helping this happen by offering reduced fees for people on low incomes.
