About me

I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor based in Clapham, SW London and Bembridge, Isle of Wight. I understand that taking the first steps to psychotherapy can be a daunting prospect especially if you are in distress and suffering from anxiety, relationship or family issues, depression or any other stresses, and there may also be considerable anxiety about talking to someone new.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic and government advice about social activities, I have moved all my work online. I am offering sessions via Skype or Zoom or telephone. Do contact me for further information.

I welcome you to contact me by phone or email for an initial enquiry. I aim to respond within 2 days to see if you'd like to then arrange a first meeting where I will listen to your concerns and explain how I work therapeutically and if you’d like to continue we can arrange regular ongoing weekly sessions.

I believe the quality of the client-counsellor/therapist relationship is the most important experience in therapy, essential to a positive outcome. I hope to build a therapeutic relationship with you that is supportive, trusting, genuine and provides a safe, secure and confidential place for you to talk openly with someone who is neutral and non-judgmental.

I offer short-term or long-term therapy to help with a variety of psychological issues including anxiety, depression, addiction, low self-esteem, bereavement, work problems, low self-confidence, anger management, addictions, divorce or relationship issues and many other things that may seem overwhelming or frightening to you.

Psychotherapy can help us to understand and gain awareness of ourselves and why we behave in certain ways. We can become conscious of how we express and respond to different emotions, how we communicate, how we form and maintain relationships or how we manage conflict, and we can develop the capacity to change things for the better.

How I work

I work as an Integrative Psychotherapist. This means that I draw on a number of different strands of psychotherapy including psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive to create a unique way of working depending upon the needs of the individual client, but always based upon building a deep and trusting collaborative relationship with the client and using this as a supportive platform to explore your concerns with you.

I work with clients from all backgrounds, cultures, races, beliefs and sexualities. I have some reduced fee availability for students or those struggling to pay the full fee, these would normally be during the working day time, please ask for further information.

I also offer one to one supervision to both trainees and qualified practitioners.

I am a Member of the BACP and I am registered with UKCP (UK Council of Psychotherapists) and abide by their ethical guidelines.

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.
