Below is an introduction to my counselling practice. I am an experienced and fully qualified professional counsellor and psychotherapist.
- What form of therapy do you provide?
I provide an integrative counselling experience; this means I utilise aspects of several models of therapy to suit individual circumstances. It is unrealistic to expect one model of therapy to meet everyone's needs, therefore having access to several models provides an approach that is tailored to each individual's needs. I also believe that therapy should be a collaborative experience where we work together to find solutions.
- How does this work in practice?
Many clients are in a cycle of therapy and regression, therapy alleviates the symptoms but at some stage the symptoms may return. I utilise a range of creative/experiential methods with the goal of finding a longer term solution.

I have experience of working in a busy NHS medical practice, an addiction centre and in Church counselling services.
Therapy may be short term or open ended. I have experience of both and recognise the value of each in the right circumstances; we can discuss what might be best for you during our first session. Sessions last 50 minutes and generally take place at the same time each week.
I offer counselling at Richmond and Kensington, London. I also provide on-line counselling where a relationship has been established initially face to face.
