About me

I am a qualified counsellor offering short and long term therapy to individuals in London Bridge.

I counsel clients of differing ethnicities, class and cultural backgrounds, identities and sexualities, over a range of areas including:

•             Anxiety and overwhelming feelings.

•             Low self-esteem and confidence.

•             Depression and feelings of helplessness.

•             Relationship difficulties.

•             Stress.

•             Personal and identity crises.

•             Lack of direction or meaning in life.

•             Need for self-exploration and self-discovery.

•             Work-related issues including bullying and pressure to perform.

I have particular clinical experience of counselling clients struggling with low self-esteem, anxiety and depression arising in both personal and professional settings.

I also offer a specialist counselling service for lawyers. Please see my website for more information.

The way I work

My core training is in Psychosynthesis, an integrative model which draws on the principles of psychodynamics, person-centred approach, cognitive behavioural therapy, gestalt, mindfulness and meditation.

This model has a holistic view of who we are - our mind, body, feelings and spirit are meaningful - and therefore there is not an aspect of your experience that we cannot explore in counselling. Psychosynthesis also sees our past, present and hopes for the future as interrelated and so enables me to support you whether you wish to explore how you were, how you are and/or how would like to be.

Psychosynthesis appreciates that not all of us express ourselves the easiest through words and so, as well as traditional talking therapy, I am trained in counselling clients using inner dialogue, drawing and working with images and visualisations.

Psychosynthesis also brings a practical element to counselling and I work with clients in helping them develop strategies and tools to support themselves in the long term beyond counselling.

Psychosynthesis respects all of who we are and all aspects of what we are experiencing and it is this inclusiveness that allows me to connect with you in the fullest sense of the word. I will work with you to suit your personal needs and in a way you feel is most comfortable for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from Psychosynthesis Trust, awarded by Middlesex University and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy.

I am a registered member of BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework. This framework means that I am in regular supervision and committed to continual personal and professional development.

As well as my private practice, I have counselled students on a voluntary basis at City Lit and Kingston University. At certain times during the year, I am an assistant trainer on a voluntary basis at Psychosynthesis Trust.

Prior to being a counsellor, I was a solicitor for over a decade in the City working in the private and public sectors.

Member organisations

BACP

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Fees

Our initial session is an opportunity for you to see what it would be like for us to work together and for me to understand what you are seeking from counselling. The session is £45 and lasts 50 minutes.

If we decide to work together, further sessions would be at an agreed fee between £55-65 and we can discuss when we meet, what amount feels most appropriate for you. These sessions would be also 50 minutes and usually at weekly intervals.

My fees are reviewed annually.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
