A Safe Place:
A place where you can explore difficult things in confidence, with someone who believes in you. Where you can unpack your anxieties, depression or relationship issues.
I believe the relationship formed between the client and counsellor is fundamental to counselling. In a good relationship the client feels accepted without being judged, supported and believed in. Here they know that they have been understood and met as they explore the difficult issues, shame and anxieties in their lives.
Therapy and counselling provides a safe and boundaried space for the client/counsellor relationship to develop so that you can explore how the world within is impacting the world without. How your self identity, relationships, anxieties, shame and behaviours are affecting your life. It enables self-discovery and can facilitate change.
My desire is for people to enjoy living with "the whole of you in all of life", not governed by broken relationships, fear and shame.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I blend a number of different theories and approaches. My practice is informed mostly by the psychodynamic and person centred approaches. I also draw on attachment theory and the transpersonal (spiritual). I am a Registered Member of the BACP.
I see clients on a private basis London, in counselling rooms found in Central London, Marylebone (W1) and South West London, Balham (SW12).
Training, qualifications & experience
In addition to my training as a counsellor I have specialist training in working with sexual addictions provided by the Institute of Sex Addiction Training (ISAT) and I am a member of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC).
Prior to professional training, I have had about 10 years experience successfully helping people address behaviours and attitudes that they did not want, did not like, but could not stop or move on from.
Post training I continue to work with a wide range of issues including anxieties, low self esteem, behavioural addictions, depression, sexual addiction (both those struggling and their partners / family members) and bereavement.
I have also run support groups helping men struggling with sexual addictions and have taught at conferences about addiction issues and shame based behaviours.
