About me

I know life can often feel overwhelming, painful, difficult and lonely. We are all living in a time of immense additional stress, worry, confusion and fear that limits our lives. Our work can help to ease and understand the pain and empower you to find a way forward. Our work together can develop more CHOICES and work towards CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE.

I have over 10 years experience working with individuals, couples, young people/children and providing family therapy. We will explore the difficult and UNHELPFUL PATTERNS, beliefs and feelings that LIMIT YOUR LIFE to help you gain NEW PERSPECTIVES and EMPOWER YOU IN YOUR LIFE.

You may be experiencing painful feelings including; depression, anxiety, relationship / family issues, feeling sad, confusion, loneliness, anger management difficulties, trauma, abuse, panic attacks, unhelpful behaviour patterns, loss, grief, isolation and low self-esteem. I have worked with clients experiencing; addiction, discrimination, bullying, suicidal thoughts, stress, eating issues, identity, body image difficulties, ADHD, Autism, bipolar and generalised anxiety disorder.

Together we can develop your COPING SKILLS, RESILIENCE and strengths while nurturing exploration and PERSONAL GROWTH. I offer a safe, trusting and PROACTIVE counselling environment. The key to helpful therapy is HONESTY and TRUST therefore the RELATIONSHIP WE BUILD TOGETHER is key. You may be experiencing feelings of worry, sadness, a bereavement, low self esteem, loss, shame, guilt, fear and isolation.

I am a fully qualified therapist (MBACP) and I have a private practice in Kingston and the South West London area and have worked within local counselling services and NHS health centres for over 10 years. I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

Individuals

I support individuals with anxiety, relationships issues, depression, low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, panic disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, relationship issues, depression, addictions and thought disorders. Physical, emotional and sexual abuse from childhood through to adult life, grief and loss, relationship issues, anger management, ADHD and additional needs. I have supported clients with various addiction problems including alcohol, drug and sex/porn addictions, anxiety, relationship issues, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, bipolar disorder and manic depression. Our work will encourage SELF ACCEPTANCE / awareness, exploration into limiting self beliefs/ UNHELPFUL BEHAVIOUR PATTERNS and develop more UNDERSTANDING, helpful COPING SKILLS / strategies and EMPOWER YOU.

Couples

My work with couples has involved challenging relationship issues including; communication difficulties, anger, mistrust, abandonment, rejection, anxiety, conflicting expectations, anxiety, affairs/infidelity, domestic violence, addictions, fertility and conception issues, substance misuse, loss, gambling addiction, sex addiction, pornography addiction, miscarriage, stepfamilies, family breakdown; separation / divorce and psychosexual difficulties. The key elements in working with couples are exploring and improving communication, negotiation, compromise, affection, empathy and honesty. Couples issues can be explored productively and supported within a NEUTRAL, unbiased therapeutic environment. Couples work can involve challenging unhelpful and limiting patterns and beliefs, exploring realistic expectations, negative behaviours and working towards REBUILDING TRUST within an authentic loving relationship. Through the sessions I support couples to IMPROVE COMMUNICATION, uncover, explore and CHALLENGE unspoken hurt, pain, disappointment and resentment that limits their INTIMACY and connection.

Families

I also work with families and help them to explore parenting styles and STRATEGIES, emotional BOND/CLOSENESS, COMMUNICATION and CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR that may be facing as a family group/system. These may include issues around ANGER, CONTROL and BOUNDARIES. I can work with a few family members and the whole family. We explore feelings and behaviours and the ways in which they impact upon individuals and the whole family. We look at ways to become closer, improve practical communication and NEGOTIATION skills at home. Looking at the family history and expectations of each member. I have been trained in and facilitated parenting skills courses which help enhance current parenting skills. I explore alternatives with parents such as improving communication, using empathy and praise, realistic expectations and new behaviour strategies.

Children & Young People

I have worked with children and young people / adolescents / teenagers for over 18 years within a therapeutic environment. The young people I have worked with have experienced depression, anxiety, low self esteem/ confidence, bullying, eating disorders, self harm, behaviour difficulties, PTSD, abuse and a wide range of complex emotional problems. I am highly skilled at building rapport, forming trusting, honest and helpful therapeutic relationships with children and young people that supports their own exploration and growth. We work on building self esteem, healthy relationships within their family and peer group. This includes LEARNING TO MANAGE FEELINGS such as ANGER / ANXIETY and other difficult emotions and learning new COPING SKILLS and SELF CARE. This aims to build practical EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE, self acceptance and a better understanding of their own thoughts and feelings. I provide practical tools and coping strategies.

Supervision

As a supervisor for therapists I work in a collaborative way exploring and developing your style through reflection and support. We will explore how the work impacts you in regards to stress and self care. While using self reflection we will explore your skills, ability and understanding bearing in mind effectiveness and accountability.

I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am a fully qualified BA (Hons) Integrative Relational Counsellor. I have a wide range of experience working with clients of all ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations.

My training as an integrative therapist means that I work within a number of different therapeutic perspectives - Psychodynamic, CBT, Humanistic, Person Centred and Gestalt - which will support our work together and we will find the approach that works best for you.

About me

I have worked locally with children and families within social care for over 18 years. I have worked within NHS Health Centres, local counselling services and national charities including The MS Society supporting staff and volunteers. I have had a private counselling practice in Kingston and the South West London area for over 10 years.

Many years ago I hoped therapy would help me to explore some difficult issues and embark upon a journey of self acceptance. As my feelings and understanding of myself slowly changed I became more interested in therapeutic work and began training to become a therapist.

I offer both short and long-term therapy within a holistic approach. Short term therapy can be 6-12 weeks solution focused (CBT) on a particular issue. Longer term therapy aims to explore a client's life at a deeper level. It is entirely up to you to determine the length and the focus of our work together and this can be discussed at our initial session.

I am able to offer appointments in the day, evenings & weekends.
