I am an integrative registered Counsellor / Psychotherapist working in London
Is life becoming more problematic?
Struggling to manage or understand your feelings?
My experience of working with people over many years as an Integrative humanistic Counsellor / Psychotherapist leads me to recognise the natural capacity for growth in each individual.
I provide a confidential safe environment to explore, reflect and promote well being. Whatever challenges we may face each of us has the potential to manage our lives. Counselling and psychotherapy provides that opportunity when we put ourselves forward. I place the struggles I am presented with at the core of my work.
I practice in Central and West London working with individuals and couples as well as practising as a supervisor. In my work I adapt my therapeutic integrative approach according to client needs reflecting at regular intervals. I work as a Trauma Specialist for a rape crisis organisation. I again help support vulnerable older individuals.
After my initial training I gained experience working with individual clients as well as running groups. I am familiar at dealing with issues associated with depression, anxiety, self- esteem, bereavement, loss, relationship difficulties, sexual identity,anger, Trans-Gender and cultural issues, trauma and substance misuse difficulties.
I have worked in the field for over twenty years covering substance misuse problems, traumatic stress disorders and other issues. In my work as a trauma specialist I help people who suffered traumatic painful experiences recover and move on with their lives. Those impacted by any form of emotional physical or sexual violence either rooted in early childhood or more recent times.
