About me

Hi, I am a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor working with individuals face to face. I am able to offer either short term or long term therapy depending on your needs. Together we will discuss how your full potential may be achieved and the support that may be required to enable this to happen.

As an integrative-relational counsellor I am able to draw on many different theories and approaches such as CBT, humanistic, gestalt and psychodynamic, depending on your unique needs and to support you in the process within a confidential, safe and comfortable environment.

Having the time and space within therapy to explore your thoughts, feelings and areas of conflict in an open and non-judgemental way, not necessarily found with family and friends, gives you the chance to reflect, become more aware of your processes and choices, and to make changes in your life when you feel able to do so having the right support.

I feel passionate about giving people the chance they deserve to lead a fulfilling life by getting to grips with whatever troubles are causing stress or pain.

Experience

I see a wide variety of clients experiencing various presenting issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, loss/bereavement, relationship problems, substance dependence, to name just a few, that impacts on their daily lives, and  by talking through what is going on for them in a non-judgmental way and with the right interventions, helps them understand more about themselves and the situations they may be in that is causing them distress and to then make informed choices to better their situation.

I see clients within my private practice and have also had experience seeing clients within a local NHS GP Practice by referral from the GP's.

I am also part of the counselling and wellbeing team at a London University, where I have seen students with many varying issues from living away from home, establishing/maintaining relationships, social media influences and also long standing mental health conditions. I have also recently taken on a role as a Specialist Mental Health Mentor giving longer term support for the students.

I am a registered member of the British of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP)

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.
