I offer person centred counselling, which means that I work with the aim of supporting my clients to explore themselves and their concerns in an empathic, non-judgemental and genuine way, to ultimately determine the right path for themselves in a safe and confidential setting. I also offer a range of other tools and techniques to support my clients including Mindfulness, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Hypnotherapy.
An initial assessment session of 50 minutes is the first stage, during which a prospective client and I can meet and get to know each other, so that I can understand what the client might want to achieve through therapy and the client can understand what I am able to offer and whether they feel comfortable to work with me.
If we both feel that we can work together, I can offer weekly sessions on an open-ended basis or over a fixed period of time, if this is preferred.
I can offer appointments at Farringdon (EC1), South Woodford (E18) and Dagenham (RM9).
