About me and my therapy practice

I am an accredited, experienced integrative counsellor offering weekly one-to-one counselling sessions. My style is empathic and sensitive, aiming to create a safe space for you to share and reflect, increase awareness and deepen understanding of what is going on for you and what you truly want; and to find your unique way forward towards solutions, acceptance and healing. I see our work as a collaborative and creative process with the quality of our relationship at it's heart.

I have seven years of experience offering short and long-term therapy. In the past I have worked for CPPD low cost therapy service; as a bereavement counsellor for Brent Bereavement Service and as a short-term service integrative counsellor at a leading mental health charity.

Practice description

Many people come to therapy wishing to change something about themselves. To me, counselling is not about adding or removing of anything from who you are but rather about orienting yourself in your inner landscape, finding your centre and connecting with different aspects of your being through qualities of respect, acceptance and compassion. I would like to support you in trusting your inner wisdom and goodness, to facilitate your own process of growth to unfold and to accompany you on this journey.

Counselling means spending a lot of time untangling your past and present experiences, understanding how your past might have shaped you and discovering how it might still be affecting you today. But it is not the interpretations and metaphors that impact most upon the people I work with. In my experience, it is the quality and depth of personal engagement in the spirit of emotional honesty and mutual respect that feels most helpful. Something special happens when two people really meet whilst being present with each other and with themselves. In my practice, I aim for these precious moments to happen as I place the authentic relationship between two human beings at the heart of my work.
