About me

Profile Photo © Dennis Rice - Strictly No Reuse.

Hello, you might have had therapy before, or this might be the very first time that you have reached out for professional help. The first step is always the hardest step. You might have reached a stage whereby you are so overwhelmed that you are either shutting down, and perhaps numbing everything, so you're not feeling anything at all; or you might be so over sensitised that you feel you are over thinking and over reacting to everything. In short you need help and as an experienced, highly-qualified counsellor I am here for you, so let's start the work now without delay. Call or email me and we can go from there.

I specialise in helping my clients acknowledge what is going on for them and then help them mobilise for positive change. To do that we are looking to add resilience and self empathy and greater self care to how they are with themselves in the world. We can't always change others, but ourselves we can definitely change for the better.

I trained at the Gestalt Centre in London, acknowledged as one of the world's leading centres for psychotherapy and counselling. This included the huge benefit of my working as a pro bono counsellor at the mental health charity MIND for more than two years, and in doing so watching people turn their lives around through empathy and support.

I offer sessions starting at £40 for 50 minutes to students and the low waged, moving up to £65 if they you wish to see me at my practice in East London, Counselling via Skype/Whats App/Zoom is also available.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss the type of therapy you need.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Counselling from the Gestalt Centre, London.
  • Introductory Certificate in Humanistic Counselling from the Gestalt Centre, London.
  • I also have an honours degree in English Literature (2:1).

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also work with clients who express what some psychotherapists refer to as "complicated grief," that is to say feelings around loss which are so overwhelming that it feels like you can't move on, that they just won't go away.

I am also interested in how the body itself can hold and remember trauma going way back, and also how stimulating and mobilised clients can become when they start to get back in touch with what is going on in their bodies.

"The body never lies. Whenever you move, walk or talk, you bring with you all your life." Martha Graham, dancer and performer.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
