Hello, I am a registered counsellor and psychotherapist specialising in Anxiety, Abuse, Trauma and Addiction. I practice in Clapham and Tooting in South West London, the heart of the City, just a short walk from Bank tube station and Haywards Heath in West Sussex.
Regardless of the intensity of your dilemma or the depth of your distress, your personal crisis can provide an opportunity for self-awareness. I use my training to help you evoke greater insight, new perspectives, find acceptance and discover patterns of behaviour and their underlying causes. I work hard to help you find new practical and emotional strategies, in order to provide future resilience and a renewed zest for life.
I understand that making the first step towards change can be extremely difficult. So even if you would like to just ask a question in confidence, or make an appointment to meet in person, please do not hesitate to give me a call or send me an email.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience working with a multitude of issues in both private practice, agency settings and within the National Health Service. I have experience of intensive long-term and short-term, solution focussed work. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the National Counselling Society.
My training is essentially integrative, client centred and technically eclectic, it uses elements of psychodynamic theory and blends experiential dynamic approaches with emotion focussed therapy and mindfulness. It is based on evidence from current advances in neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology. As a general principal I focus on a more intense, shorter-term therapy.
