About me

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, offering my clients a safe and confidential place for support, exploration and transformation. You can check my website if you would like to learn more about me and how I work.

I believe that a respectful and non-judgmental environment is crucial in therapy, and this is an essential element of my work. I always welcome whole authentic feelings from my clients, without putting a negative label on them. To be able to explore overwhelming feelings such as: guilt, embarrassment, shame, anger, envy, fear, and many others, without feeling judged, requires trust to be present. Even the decision to come to counselling is a courageous step – facing our difficulties is never easy.

I encourage my clients to work with me in creative ways, adopting curiosity to potential underlying dynamics, as I too, work with commitment and interest in whatever I see.

I combine well-established therapeutic approaches with innovative techniques. Together we will search for the root of your problem, then work together in a holding, yet creative and instinctive way, moving towards meaningful change to your life.

I am a warm, compassionate and open therapist. Despite my extensive training and continuous professional growth, I believe that no techniques or approaches will ever work without a strong client-therapist connection. I see each person as a unique being and I work in a holistic way - I work with people, not with problems. I am passionate about facilitating clients to work through issues and improve their lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

Following several years studying psychology and counselling, I am a professionally trained Humanistic and Psychodynamic counsellor. As a member of the BACP register (accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care), I abide by their ethical guidelines.

I have a background in business psychology, and had a successful career as a consultant prior to my clinical career.

Throughout the course of my training, I have worked with many different people in generic settings, and I continue to do this, enjoying the variety of people I meet in my private practice.

Other areas of work include: self-sabotage, procrastination, depression, relationship issues, emotional and sexual abuse, domestic violence (with victims and perpetrators), bi-polar, low self-esteem, shame, trauma, personality disorders, and anger.

I am 12 step program literate, and I work with addictive issues, compulsive behaviour and co-dependency. I offer support to AA and Al-Anon members.

I also specialise in divorce and breaking-up issues, and run weekly support groups in South East London.

I continue to attend further workshops and courses, consistently enhancing my knowledge base, and developing myself as a practitioner.
