About me and my therapy practice
In this very confusing and testing time with COVID, you might feel very alone or anxious. It might be a good time to take time and be kind to yourself, to open up and reach out.
Whether we are self-isolating or not, we can still do that - assuming we have the technology... - So, I am offering telephone, WhatsApp, Facetime or Zoom by video or face-to-face. Don't hide if you struggle; we can go through this hard time together. It might not be easy to start with and that's ok too. But you will feel better at least for having tried.
This is the content of my page prior to Coronavirus; it still stands:-
Maybe you have gone through or are experiencing something traumatic, you feel stuck, anxious or even scared. Perhaps you have lost confidence and can’t see a way through, feeling that your self-esteem has been attacked or even crushed.
With my training in Integrative Counselling (Person-Centred and Psychodynamic), I offer you a safe place outside of the situation which is non-judgmental, respecting and honouring. I believe that you are the expert in the room, and together we can begin to uncover, understand and accept these feelings, behaviour and consequential situations. This would be the beginning of finding ways of coping and growing, of you becoming who you are intended to be, learning to be kind to yourself and to be set free from guilt.
I have 15 years of experience in working with people with addiction (drugs and alcohol). I have also worked for the NHS IAPT programme and trained as a bereavement counsellor. I am based in South East London (SE4) but would consider home visits if you are house-bound.
I am as comfortable speaking English and French, as I am originally from Belgium.
Our first session will be an assessment where you can ask questions regarding the process. We will discuss what you would like to achieve and see if we feel that we can work together.
