About me

Are you looking for non-judgemental help and support with your difficulties and concerns? People come to therapy for many different reasons. Whatever your reasons, therapy with me provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk with a qualified therapist about your difficulties. The goal of therapy is to help you understand your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours and to develop skills to manage your life in a more satisfying way.

How I can help you

I am a trusted Psychotherapist and draw upon many years of training in psychology and counselling, and experience in helping people. I combine my knowledge and experience with therapeutic skills to help you in the best possible way according to your needs.

What I can help with

I help people with most of life’s difficulties, relationship problems and mental health concerns. I have a particular interest in:

*Anxiety                 *Burnout                 *Life transitions       *Identity/ self

*Loss                     *Work-stress            *Bereavement          *Relationships          

Group therapy is available for:

*Bereavement                                    

*Burnout/ work-stress

How I work

People describe me as warm and easy to talk to, which is helpful for most people, especially at the start. I work in an integrative way, which means I integrate knowledge from a variety of therapies. We will explore what it is you would like to deal with in therapy and we will agree therapeutic goals. I will offer you therapy tailored to your needs and we will work in a way that works best for you.

I work in a humanistic way, which means that I will support you to freely explore your whole life experience over the past, present and future. My main framework is known as Existential Psychotherapy, which helps people to live a more satisfying life, on their own terms, with the responsibility and freedom that comes with it.

Available Therapies

*CBT                      * Humanistic                * Existential                  *Mindfulness

What I offer

I work mostly with adults and offer both individual and group therapy sessions on a weekly basis.

Individual psychotherapy: 50 minutes weekly.

Group therapy: Weekly 1.5-2 hour session.

Meeting regularly with others who are going through a similar experience as      you, provides you with support at a difficult time. A group usually consists of 4-6 individuals. We meet on a weekly basis for 12 weeks. You have to carefully consider if you are able to commit to attending a group for the full 12 weeks, because it is disruptive to the group when anyone does not attend a session or leave.

Email me for more information if you would like to join a group. Depending on demand, there may be a waiting list.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a master’s level qualified counsellor and registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. You can be assured that my work adheres to the highest professional and ethical standards.

I have had many years of education up to Masters level in Psychology and also Organisational and Occupational Psychology. This means I have a deep knowledge of psychological theory which informs the way I work. Complementing my learning and education, is the way I work, which is by connecting with you in a human and practical way, and not a ‘heady’ intellectual way.

I have previously worked in the NHS and other counselling services and have experience of helping people with a range of mental health, relationship, and life difficulties.

In my personal journey, prior to becoming a Psychotherapist, I had a corporate career which have had its own challenges and many ups and downs. It is fair to say that I have had my own dealings with stress, work-life balance, strained relationships, and burnout.

I am currently completing a Doctorate in Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology at The New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology and Middlesex University. I am exploring the lived experience of burnout from an Existential-Phenomenological perspective, which means exploring the lived experience of burnout from the individual’s perspective. Surprisingly, there is hardly any research exploring burnout from this angle.

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.
