About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Senior Accredited BACP counsellor, having worked full time within the counselling field since 1996, in the NHS, private and voluntary sectors. I offer face-to-face and telephone counselling. I have had a busy private practice in East Dulwich since 2004.

My approach is integrative, which means that the most effective approach is used to meet the needs of each person. This is underpinned by a humanistic philosophy that assumes the capacity of each individual to shape their own life. I draw from person-centred, existential and cognitive-behavioural therapies, with an emphasis on empowering the individual. 

I have experience of helping with a wide range of difficulties but particular areas of expertise include bereavement, loss, trauma, time-limited work and problems with drugs or alcohol (9 years in the substance misuse field from 1993). Since 2000, I have worked with organisations, provided workplace counselling, mediation and have attended over 120 critical incidents, supporting managers and staff after traumatic events such as major accidents and terrorist attacks. 

If you are interested in the possibility of counselling, please feel free to get in touch for an informal discussion.
