Welcome to my profile. I believe that in order to overcome life’s challenges and achieve the sense of well-being you desire in life, developing a strong self-awareness is essential. I have an interest in helping you understand how your early relationships with parents, carers, family and peers can shape how you relate to the world around you at present. I have experience of helping those who have faced depression, anxiety, low self-worth; identity issues, drug addiction and anger problems understand how they can be connected to thoughts and feelings that developed in early life.
I am aware that discovering these connections can be overwhelming and recognise the importance of working at your pace to support healthy, lasting and positive outcomes. I am also respectful of individual differences and adapt my approach to suit you; ensuring that you are comfortable and your needs are met.
Choosing a counsellor that you believe is right for you is a big decision, but if you think it could be me, I guarantee a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment where you can discover, explore and understand your thoughts feelings and responses. I am based at The Awareness Centre in Tooting as a Private Therapist. Please feel free to email or call for more information.
Training, qualifications & experience
For over 10 years I worked as an Independent Service Provider in schools and Pupil Referral Units delivering mentoring and self-development programmes that enabled young people to make positive life choices. While helping young people manage problematic behaviour I recognised the importance of offering ‘here and now’ coping strategies as they explored the underlying issues. I now successfully apply this knowledge and skill in his therapeutic practice - adeptly bringing together aspects of the different types of therapy in a manner that is sensitive to each client’s individual need. By living and working in a multi-cultural environment as both mentor and therapist I have developed a knowledge and understanding that allow me to work empathically and effectively with a wide range of client groups.
I have a BA Hons degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Sociology / Social Psychology), an Advanced Level Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and I am a registered member of the BACP. I am currently in the process of attaining a specialist master’s degree (MSc) with a focus on the psychology of addictive and repetitious behaviours.
