My passion is to help those who may be feeling stressed, anxious, depressed, distressed or overwhelmed. I am dedicated to provide the right emotional support and strive to help clients fulfil their potential and help them move forwards. I am passionate about mental health support and helping people manage everyday or even long term struggles. I offer clients a professional, safe, non-judgemental environment to offload and work through any issues or difficulties you may be experiencing.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, meaning my sessions are individually tailored to each unique client. I am able to use the three main schools of psychology to meet the needs of my clients. I work collaboratively with my clients to set the goals of therapy and then structure the sessions around this. I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Person Centred Therapy and Psychoanalysis fluidly to match the needs of the session. In using a integrative model I am able to pull together the best parts of each theory to support clients in their journey to reach the goals they set.
If you feel you need support or guidance I can help by offering you a non-judgmental space to talk through your situation or experiences. I will offer you empathy and encouragement whilst understanding your story.
Training, qualifications & experience
Having studied integrative counselling for 4 years, my passion and dedication to this role enabled me to come away with a first class BA honours. I have an enhanced understanding of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred and Psychoanalysis theories, which enables me to pull together aspects from all to fit my clients specific needs.
I am experienced in working with adults, youths and children having volunteered at the samaritans as well as having worked at the mental health charity Mind.
I am currently a practitioner at MyndTalk London providing corporate therapy and in school therapy.
My counselling knowledge is up to date through my degree and participation in training courses and certificates.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Sessions are charged at £40 per session (50 Minutes)
Telephone or email consultation is available free of charge before the initial session to be sure you feel comfortable to work with me.
If you feel you would benefit from counselling it is important that you feel as comfortable as possible with your chosen counsellor.
You can contact me via email, phone call or text to make the initial contact and then I can help guide you through the process from here. I will only ever ask general questions about your therapeutic needs at this point. Should you feel comfortable and ready to begin session we will schedule the first session and then continue from there after establishing a therapeutic contract together.
My sessions will be held in a cosy log cabin in Collier Row easy access with a bus stop directly opposite. The log cabin looks into an open garden so you can take a break from the noise of the outside world. Sometimes when times get busy and we forget to take time out for ourselves, things build up and we become overwhelmed. Private counselling is a great way to offload some of those worries and stresses onto an outside person, who has the ability to make you feel heard and important. Whether you are living with a mental health condition, suffered a loss or are just feeling overwhelmed, counselling can help.
