I work in long-term therapy in Private Practice with the symptoms of complex trauma originating from childhood. For the past two years, I have also been working for Oneinfour, a specialist charity for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, violence, torture, and domestic violence in London.
I work relationally, and I am committed to establishing trust and a safe, non-judgemental therapeutic environment for all my clients. The therapeutic relationship alliance is paramount to enable you to explore and work through difficult thoughts and feelings related to the traumatic experiences you have been living with. You will gain greater insight and awareness into how those thoughts and feelings have impacted you and your life in terms of intimate relationships, work-life, social life, or other aspects of your life.
In our sessions, we will engage in psychotherapeutic talking therapy that will offer you a chance to explore in a confidential, safe space how you feel to create a greater awareness of who you are today. Counselling is an investment in yourself and your future wellbeing, and as such, things can change throughout therapy. This is why you will have frequent reviews, where goals and outcomes can be revised and tailored towards your specific needs so you gain the most from our sessions.
I trained as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Practitioner in the modalities of Psychodynamic Therapy, CBT, Transactional Analysis, Person-Centered Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and Narrative Exposure Therapy.
During our sessions, I may use some of these modalities and additional therapeutic tools in an integrative way, or maybe just one. But, again, it will be solely dependent on the uniqueness of the individual client's presenting symptomology you bring to each session.
It takes immense strength and resilience to acknowledge you need to talk to a professional practitioner, but you've already taken the biggest step by being here today.
