About me

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, I am still seeing Clients, but have moved my Practice online for the foreseeable future. I am also offering preference to Key Workers/NHS Staff/furloughed employees, so please get in touch if you would like to discuss this further.

What I Offer:
I provide Counselling and Therapy around a number of issues including: grief, stress, anxiety, depression, addictions, finding meaning and purpose in life, transitions, relationship issues, decisions, sexuality, spiritual growth and personal development.

I have particular experience with GSRD (Gender, Sexual and Relational Diversity)/LGBT* clients and those facing personal, cultural, spiritual and workplace issues. I am a member of The London Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity Practice. (https://www.londonsexrelationshiptherapy.com)

Primary Experience:
My primary experience and training is in Psychosynthesis (http://www.counselling-directory.org.uk/psychosynthesis.html), an integrated, holistic and Transpersonal model of counselling and therapy which recognises that each of us are a soul on a personal journey. My main goal with clients is to get you to explore and question your life in ways you have probably never done before and in doing so, get you to the ultimate truth of who you are and how you fit in the world. Central to Psychosynthesis is an exploration of meaning, purpose, creativity, inspiration and values, whilst also addressing the many personal struggles that can effect us. Psychosynthesis seeks to explore, integrate and heal these areas through the search for wholeness beyond the bounds of a person’s individuality.

How I can help:
I work with psychodynamic, integrated, experiential, person-centred, creative and transpersonal techniques that are used to address problems and issues that are experienced in both the materialistic and spiritual world of the individual and how they ‘fit’ into the world.

My role is to offer an emotionally warm, safe and confidential environment for you to discuss your issues or difficulties so that hopefully you can resolve or come to terms with them. Bottom line, it’s about you and your needs.

What to expect in the first session:

After an initial contact by e-mail or phone we will arrange an appointment as soon as we can. The first session is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other. It will be a space for you to ask any questions you may have about me or the counselling process and to talk about what brings you to counselling. At the end of this session we should have a good idea as to whether we want to work together and continue with further sessions, although you may want to think it over for a few days.

I work out of consulting rooms close to transport links in London Bridge (SE1), at my home in Wimbledon (SW19) and online.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma (PGDip) in Psychosynthesis counselling, after completing a three year training at The Psychosynthesis Trust in London, accredited by Middlesex University.

I am an Accredited Registrant with the National Counselling Society (MNCS Accred) and a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) and abide by their Ethical Framework.

I am an Advanced Accredited Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversities Therapist (Accred AGSRDT) with Pink Therapy

I also hold a Graduate Certificate in Psychosynthesis Foundations, also from The Psychosynthesis Trust and an MA in Gender, Sexuality and Culture from University of London, Birkbeck.

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.
