About me

Summary

I am a UKCP accredited clinical psychotherapist. I offer online and face to face counselling and psychotherapy in London Bridge, the City and East Dulwich (currently all sessions are offered online/by phone). I offer short-term and long-term psychotherapy, depending on your needs.

My Approach

I believe that everyone deserves to have someone in their lives who can listen compassionately and hold a space of non-judgemental understanding. I try to offer that space, first and foremost. Through psychotherapy you can make sense of your past and present situation. In order to do that we often need someone who is able to see our good qualities and our innate wisdom (which many people often disregard), as well as understand where things have been difficult.

Ultimately, the purpose of psychotherapy is to support your growth. Psychotherapy is not always easy. Therefore, it is important to find the right person for you: someone who you can trust and who you feel safe with; someone who values you and your potential. If you feel we could work together, I would like to offer that space for you.

Through psychotherapy, it is possible to feel better, as well as approach your life and relationships with more awareness, self-esteem, direction and purpose. This has been my experience and the experience of many of my clients. It takes work, but real change is possible, no matter how you feel now.

As an integrative psychotherapist, I use a number of well researched and proven approaches (including humanistic, gestalt and relational/intersubjective psychodynamic), as well as draw on recent neuropsychological and trauma research. The underlying core of my approach is based on respecting your needs and safety. Different things work for different people, so let's speak about what you would like to get out of therapy and whether I can support you to achieve a better life.

Accessibility

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.

Wheelchair user access

I ascribe to the social model of disability. Please let me know your accessibility requirements.
