About me

Welcome! I know that talking about feelings can seem scary - and yet I believe human connection is essential in difficult times.  The word therapy literally means ‘to stand beside the other’ and together, in a safe space, we can work with whatever's challenging or overwhelming you, and explore new choices - at your own pace. If you’re feeling lost, scared or distressed, I'd like to support you in finding some clarity, offering you warmth and integrity whilst we do that.  I work with issues from fear, loss and grief; family, parenting and relationship issues, fertility and pregnancy issues, work problems, anger, general stress or ‘stuckness’; addictive behaviour, anxiety, panic and depression and trauma.

I'm also very interested in how we hold emotions and anxiety in our bodies - and how to locate what causes tension and distress, making it easier to bear.  Crucially, I believe we all deserve the chance to express ourselves without feeling judged, and the chance to find our own light. During therapy, I'm always led by your needs. If you want to simply talk, or are interested in using creativity to gain new perspectives, such as journal writing or free drawing, we can do that together, exploring how to move into new cycles of experience. I draw on different therapeutic models: being particularly interested in what's happening for you right now in the present moment, as well as looking at the past, and any fears for the future.

Training, qualifications & experience

My belief in the vitality of connection with others led me to become a Samaritan at the age of twenty, some decades ago! Working in drama, the arts and media enabled me to experience and research countless walks of life, whether it was Relate's Sex therapy, stress at work or young people who persistently ran away. This background, along with writing and university teaching (working with students), led to my counselling training: at the renowned Gestalt Centre in London and at the Psychosynthesis Trust.

As an experienced humanistic practitioner, I believe that mind, body and emotions are linked and that good therapy can help in most areas of life. I've worked in community counselling for some years now, with clients of all backgrounds & age groups, from teens upwards. I continue to train in different areas, from bereavement to trauma.

I’m BACP registered, and always work within the ethical framework.

Fees

Counselling works best on a weekly basis. I’d suggest an initial meeting to help identify the key issues you wish to address, how I think I can help, and for you to decide if you want to work with me. My fees are dependant on where we see each other.

Further information

I'm at the Sunflower Centre in Brockley on Monday mornings, and in Moorgate Light Centre on Wednesday am. If you're interested in working with me locally (SE10/ SE3/ SE12 areas) we can discuss other time slots.
