I am an experienced Psychotherapist working in private practice and I believe that talking about our concerns with someone who is both trained to hear them and respond in a non-judgmental way, can bring about positive change: it won’t “cure” you or delete a painful past, but it can equip you to move on with greater ease and lead to a more fulfilling life.
As an ‘Integrative’ Psychotherapist, I draw upon a range of thinking, ideas and techniques. My approach is based on the understanding that difficulties experienced in the past, especially during childhood, can continue to affect the way we feel and behave in the present and, I aim to address both the causes and the symptoms of emotional and psychological difficulties.
I have worked with individuals presenting with anxiety, relationship issues, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, panic disorder, phobias, affairs and betrayals, internet (pornography) and sexual addictions, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, bereavement, anger management, stress, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma and sexuality - although that's not an exhaustive list..... Sometimes in life, we just don't feel 100% emotionally fulfilled, but we also don't know why and counselling can help with that too.
Our initial meeting is a time for you to talk freely about what has brought you to me, along with any goals you may wish to achieve and questions about therapy. It’s also an opportunity for you to experience what I’m like and how I work.
I am happy to have an informal chat with you by telephone to answer any questions you may have prior to arranging an initial meeting and there's no obligation to continue. Please call me on: 07504 841 989 or email me via: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For counselling to have a positive outcome, it is important to attend regularly*, usually at the same time and place each week, which requires a high degree of commitment, this is because when working through difficult feelings, emotions and experiences, it may seem as though things are getting worse, before they get better.
*I can offer some flexibility for those who might find it difficult, for work related reasons etc, to commit to a regular time each week, so please feel free to ask.
I currently have availability for new clients at Fulham Broadway SW6 and Putney SW15.
My Fulham Broadway location is approximately 2-3 minutes walk from the Underground Station and in East Putney I am 7-8 minutes walk from the Underground. Both locations are easily accessible from: Barnes, Chelsea, Earls Court, Fulham, Putney, Southfields, Wandsworth and Wimbledon.
If I am unable to take your call, please leave a message stating convenient times for me to contact you. To maintain your confidentiality, I do not return missed calls where no message is left.

Together with my private practice, I have worked with clients at a specialist NHS addictions and substance misuse service in west London and additionally I worked with long-term clients who presented with a variety of diverse and often complex issues at the South London Counselling Service in Lewisham.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
My original training was with addictions and substance misuse clients and I have subsequently developed an interest in both sex addiction and working with those who present with this issue. The underlying causes of sex addiction are similar to those underpinning alcohol addiction and substance misuse issues and, my training and skills are relevant to this area of work.
I also have an interest in working with clients who can be termed as ‘boarding school survivors' and the difficulties that arise in later life from being separated from parents and siblings at a young age.

Cancellations and missed sessions:
For therapy to have a positive outcome it is important to attend regularly.

Agreed holidays are three weeks in any six month period. I am happy to offer telephone counselling as an alternative or to reschedule a session, if this is mutually convenient.
