About me

Touch Base Therapy Services

I am a BACP registered and senior accredited, attachment-based integrative counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor.
I have experience of working in the NHS and private sector, offering short and long term therapy to individuals in central London (SE1/Waterloo/Vauxhall/Albert Embankment/Westminster areas).

I work by looking at attachment strategies, developmental stages and patterns of behaviour, helping to connect past experiences to the present, whilst seeking to bring about desired changes.

Goals can be raising self-esteem and awareness, relieving depression, anxiety, panic attacks and traumatic stress, or improving relationships and looking at identity and/or inter-cultural issues, for example.

I provide a safe and confidential space for clients to identify their inner needs, recognise and validate their experiences and manage feelings and emotions. I can also assist with developmental trauma, attachment and family / parenting issues.

I'm experienced in working with trauma and use sensorimotor and attachment focused EMDR in an integrative mode.

Expectations and reasons for wanting to have counselling vary and I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have or to discuss your circumstances and needs. You can email or phone me and I will get back to you.

I am a senior accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and a member of the EMDR Association (UK & Ireland) and follow their respective  codes of ethics), which you can learn more about on their websites: www.bacp.co.uk. and www.emdrassociation.co.uk.
