About me

 As an experienced and qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Supervisor and Group Facilitator, I work with therapeutically and holistically with adult couples, individuals, and groups, as well as qualified and trainee counsellors, therapists and other mental health and well-being practitioners.
My approach to therapy is from a person-centred, transpersonal and integrative perspective. I combine various theories and techniques, and tailor individual sessions to suit your unique needs and preferences, and we go at a pace that you are comfortable with. Therapeutic intervention can involve Internal Family Systems theory, Attachment Theory or Inner Child healing, guided visualisation, breathing and relaxation exercises, EFT, Sandtray or therapeutic art exercises, among other techniques.
Services I provide include:

  • Therapeutic counselling sessions in-person, online and over the phone, depending on your preference and availability.
  • Clinical supervision for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists on an individual or small group basis.
  • Small group personal development workshops in a comfortable London therapy room, for anyone who would like to get to improve their psychological, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, through greater self-awareness and healthier interactions with themselves and with others.

My main area of interest is relationships, both with oneself and with others. This is because relating to others and to oneself is something humans naturally do on a consistent basis, for example at work, with family members, friends and even strangers. The relationships and interactions we have can greatly affect our self-esteem, confidence and general wellbeing, and when it is continuously negative, the effects can be dire.  Getting to better understand ourselves on a deeper level, and making improvements to how we relate to the outside world, as well as to our own internal dialogue, allows us to take better control of our life experiences and ultimately our own happiness.
Self-development could take the form of learning better ways to cope with stress or anxiety, or finding more self-compassion. It might be in setting personal boundaries or figuring out what you really want from life and how to get there. Allow me to support you in finding a deeper connection with yourself, deeper self-awareness and understanding, as well as emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being, and healthier relationships with others. With the right foundation, you can move through your life with more purpose and a healthy sense of empowerment, when you know you have the tools for a calmer, more joyous life. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold advanced qualifications in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling, and a Masters degree in Child, Adolescent & Family Therapy. I have also had in-depth training in EFT Tapping, sandtray therapy, Internal Family Systems therapy, CBT, and hold a postgraduate diploma in Integrative supervision of individuals and groups.

I am experienced in using a variety of therapeutic approaches and techniques.

I am committed to on-going professional development, which I maintain with regular CPD course attendance, to refresh and further my skills. I also attend regular clinical supervision, and have personal therapy to maintain my own well-being.

Throughout my years as a psychotherapist/ counsellor, I have supported many individuals, couples and families to deal with the problems in their lives, and find workable solutions and positive outcomes.

Further information

What to expect:

You will be welcomed into a comfortable therapy room, where you are invited to relax and share your troubles with a friendly, non-judgemental counselling professional. During the initial session, I will request some basic information about you and the issues you are facing, and you are welcome to ask me any questions you might have.

The initial session lasts for up to an hour and ongoing therapy sessions last for 50 minutes each. Sessions usually take place on a weekly or fortnightly basis, but can be ad hoc as well if that suits you better, until an agreed ending between therapist and client is reached.

Telephone / video counselling sessions also last 50 minutes and are arranged in advance, where we agree a suitable day and time for me to call you.

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.
