About me

I have been in practise as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist since 2000. I offer my clients an opportunity to understand and make sense of their current difficulties in a confidential, safe and non judgemental space. The aim is always to find a realistic, effective and lasting way forward towards an improved quality of life.

I offer long and short term face to face sessions to adults and adolescents. I also offer assessments.
The first session is usually an assessment. We will look at the presenting problem and any thoughts and feelings you have about counselling, whilst at the same time you will get a sense of how I work and whether or not you wish to pursue further sessions.
Sometimes it can be useful to take 2 or 3 sessions for an assessment if you are particularly unsure about pursuing counselling, or unsure which type of counselling will be most helpful or appropriate for you.
Short term counselling (6-10 session) can be useful for enabling you to pin point your difficulties, make some sense of them and find strategies for different ways of managing, for example, mild anxiety, some relationship issues.
Longer term work is particularly helpful where the difficulties are more entrenched and complex and as a result further exploration is needed, for example, long term depression, complex bereavement, issues with anger, addictions, long term relationship difficulties, panic attacks or sexual identity issues.
It is often useful to look at family relationships and history, as well as the current present day problem as they can be connected.

Working from an integrative theoretical basis allows for a flexible and creative way of working and responding to the particular need of each individual client.

My practise is in central Brixton, about 1 minutes walk from Brixton tube (victoria line) and a variety of bus routes servicing Streatham, Herne Hill, Clapham, Camberwell and Kennington.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy.

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.

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.
