You might be in a difficult place in your life right now, and wondering if counselling is right for you. I understand that coming to counselling, especially for the first time, can seem daunting. If this rings true for you, I would like to commend you on taking these first steps towards trying something different in your life.
I work as a counsellor to help people transform their lives for the better through developing their awareness. I strongly believe that we all have deep within us the ability to cope and respond to any challenge or difficulty we face in our lives.
I practice Gestalt therapy and my approach is to work with you to help you become more connected with your true self and your own processes within your body, mind and soul. Through increasing your self awareness and understanding of yourself and your life situation, you can develop your ability to respond to situations in your life in ways that better serves you than.
Issues I can help you with among others include:
- Self Esteem
- Relationship issues
- Grief and bereavement
I believe that it is important for you to find a therapist or counsellor that you feel comfortable with and who will give you enough support and enough challenge to help you develop as a person and make the most of your time.
I practice from Clapham Junction, Balham and London Bridge. I have availability Mondays, Tuesday evening, Wednesday afternoon and evening and Thursday evening. I also have some availability on weekends.
If you are interested in starting counselling the next step would be to contact me to arrange an initial introductory session. In this session I can explain in more detail to you about the format of the sessions and how we would work together. I can find out a bit about what you have come to counselling for and we can also identify what you are hoping to get out of it. You can ask me any questions you might have about counselling or how we would work together in general. Attending an initial consultation does not commit you to ongoing therapy sessions. If we do decide to continue we will periodically review how the sessions are going.
If you are interested in discussing or arranging an initial introductory session, please feel free to email, text or call me. I shall get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks and I wish you all the best.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am trained as a counsellor in Gestalt therapy and I also use elements of mindfulness, CBT, Jungian and transactional analysis in my work.
I have worked with people from a variety of backgrounds who have brought a range of issues they have sought to address . These include anxiety, depression, loneliness, anger management, loss and bereavement, traumatic experiences, work issues, low self-esteem, relationship problems and family issues. In addition to my private practice, I have worked as a counsellor in an NHS GP's surgery and I also worked in the charity sector with the stillbirth and neonatal death charity SANDS.
