About me and my therapy practice

"Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change."Jim Rohn

Have you got that niggling feeling that things aren't right? You don't feel happy or you feel stuck in negative behavioural patterns? Or it could be painful unresolved issues from your past, or daily life issues like anxiety that are affecting you in the here and now. Therapy is a great place to start. Through a collaborative process I can work with you to identify what might be holding you back or keeping you stuck and giving you the support you need to move forward. I work integratively which means I use different styles of therapy but tailor it to suit you as every client is an individual and has different needs.

Relationship in trouble? Couples therapy can be invaluable for providing a safe space to work through all the issues that arise between you. In my experience many couples simply lose the ability to communicate effectively and get themselves heard. I can work with you to help get you towards having a healthy relationship. I find that sometimes just a few sessions can be really effective, but of course I offer long term work and support if it is required.

I have gained experience by working in an NHS environment and privately with issues ranging from:

*Anxiety

*Depression

*Eating Disorders

*Family issues and couples work

*Bereavement

*Lack of self confidence and low sense of worth and self esteem.

I strive to create a relaxed informal confidential safe space. I am currently based at the Awareness Centre in Clapham, Feel Good Balham. I also run my Private Practice in Balham.

I am qualified to work integratively and in CBT. I work with individuals, couples and young people.
