Welcome to my profile,
I am a qualified and accredited UKCP registered psychosynthesis psychotherapist working in a beautiful and tranquil setting in East London, a short distance from the City on the border between E5 and N16. My practice is 3 minutes from Clapton station and 5 minutes from Rectory Rd, both are on the line from Liverpool St station.
I provide a warm, safe, calm and non-judgmental space where you can be seen and heard and where you can reflect upon your struggles and upon the changes you would like to see in your life.
If this sounds like it could be helpful to you please get in touch and i will arrange an initial meeting to explore the issues and to answer any further questions you may have about the counselling process.
I can be contacted on 07818 832 352. I regard my work with a diverse range of people and situations as a great privilege and i look forward to receiving your call.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited and registered [UKCP] psychotherapist with over 30 years of experience in the helping professions.
My work reflects a holistic and inclusive approach to the person that stresses the importance of experience at the level of body, feelings, mind and spirit because each of these are important to the art of 'living well' and achieving our full potential.
I have extensive experience working with people from different cultural backgrounds and a strong commitment to anti-discriminatory practice.
