About me

Most of us struggle from time to time with difficulties to do with relationship with ourselves or others, with questions of purpose or meaning, regardless of how successful we may be in our lives. At times, we may experience very strong feelings which seem either unmanageable or simply inexplicable.

We may even have come to a point where we find ourselves questioning the very foundations upon which our life has been built.

One of the most interesting discoveries I have made over the time that I have been working with people is the healing power of being witnessed. That is to say, the transformation which becomes possible when a person is able to fully tell their story and to have it really heard - with respect and understanding, and free of judgement.

People come and see me. We have a conversation. It is a particular type of conversation. It takes place over a period of time and within a particular kind of space. My role is to create and hold this space and to use my being and my experience to facilitate the dialogue. In the process of having the conversation, the person begins to have an experience in which their thoughts and feelings begin to make more sense to them and therefore their particular life begins to make more sense.

In other words they begin to have an experience of being deeply and profoundly witnessed.

The experience of being so witnessed seems to mobilise resources within us such that genuine healing can take place. New possibilities can then become available. Resolutions can then present themselves.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been running a private practice since 1999 after having completed a four year Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE).

I have also trained in Family Constellations at the Centre for Systemic Constellations. It beautifully complements my approach and widens the lens through which to observe a person's emotional landscape.

I have worked as a therapist at the Richmond Counselling Service and at the North End Road Medical Centre.

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.
