About me

Welcome to my profile page. If you are currently seeking a psychotherapist or counsellor in Waterloo SE1, then perhaps I can help?

I have over 25 years’ experience of working with individuals and couples at a number of agencies, charities and in private practice whereby there is a sense of unease with a past or present situation, a crisis has occurred which feels daunting, or meaning ascribed to aspects of day to day life has changed.

My therapeutic orientation is integrative, influenced by existential-phenomenological thinking. In practise I aim to create a compassionate, safe and confidential environment in order to develop a working partnership, thus allowing my clients to better understand and clarify their views and values about life and experience of living. This journey calls for personal honesty and reflection on responsibilities. I believe psychotherapy creates opportunity for insights and extends a capacity for choice and decision, within the context of the unique dilemmas being considered. It is a space where my clients can consciously embrace and change how they would like to live.

Each person has individual needs and I have experienced using a short-term brief therapy model (6–12 weeks) and an open-ended long-term basis with a wide range of presenting issues to support my clients in finding their solutions. These have included (but not limited to) affairs and betrayals, bereavement, expatriates, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, relationship unease, sexuality, shopping addiction and work-related stress.

I offer therapy face to face, via skype and telephone.
