Your reason for seeking out therapy is unique to you. You may be suffering from anxiety, depression or experiencing problematic relationships. The reason might be less clear, but you know that on some level you feel unhappy with how life is right now. Ultimately, what brings anyone to therapy is the sense that life feels difficult in some way.
It might help you to know that feeling really heard can be the first step to alleviating distress and gaining a better understanding of your struggle. Most people benefit from having a compassionate 'other' alongside them during unsettling periods, times of crisis or whilst navigating transition into each new life stage. This is an important experience for us all and can have a positive influence on self esteem and confidence.
Therapy is a deeply personal endeavour; a space for self discovery and personal growth. As a humanistic therapist I work alongside you to support the exploration of your internal life, where you may develop self knowledge and resilience. My approach is one of support and challenge where I aim to facilitate understanding and lasting change in repeated patterns of thinking, feeling and behaviour. Crucially, I bring to our work my own journey of healing through therapy; this enables me to to be wholeheartedly beside you as you embark on yours.
If you would like to make contact you can either send an email on the link above or call me on my confidential mobile 'phone number; 07743 924978. Our first meeting is an opportunity for us to consider how we might work together to bring about the changes you are hoping for.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a PG Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Metanoia Institute, London. A psychotherapeutic training is lengthy and supports me to work at depth with complex issues. My core training has extended to an MSc in Humanistic Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute, London, affiliated with Middlesex University.
Alongside private practice I have worked within local charitable organisations for several years. This reflects my commitment to provide mental health support to those who may not ordinarily have access to psychological services. I have completed an honorary contract as visiting psychotherapist in an NHS eating disorders department. This has given me a unique insight into the complexities of disordered eating.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abide by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy www.BACP.org.
I undertake regular professional supervision to support my practice and engage in continuing professional development (CPD).
