About me and my therapy practice

Hello I am Beth a fully qualified integrative Counsellor, with over 15 years experience. I run a small friendly practise offering Individuals, Couples, Young People and Families in Southeast London a Safe and Confidential space for Support, Exploration, Acceptance and Transformation.

You may be looking for a therapist for a number of reasons and choosing one is an important part of the journey. It is important that you feel able to connect with your therapist and feel fully supported in what ever you bring.  I offer a free initial consultation this will be a chance for you to decide if you feel comfortable and wish to enter into therapy together.

I have gained a great deal of experience in assisting people of all ages  going through big life transitions, feeling of inability to cope, conflicting emotions or low moods. I draw from a wide range of therapeutic methods and techniques, believing that no one shoe fits all. 

 If you have a relationship, family, work issue or are feeling stuck, lost, overwhelmed, in need of a space to talk things through or simply want to gain a deeper insight into yourself. Then counselling may be your next step and I can help.

I will walk along side you supporting you, working in the here and now, to overcome the past,  and plan for the future. Together in a warm empathetic space, we will explore your area of concern/s and empower you to overcome any obstacles, challenges or blocks that prevent you from moving forward.

My first session

What to expect from first session.

I offer a free initial consultation this will be a chance for you to experience the Therapeutic Relationship and Explore what therapy is. Giving us a chance to get to know each other and for you to discuss your concerns and what has brought you here. Also what you would like to gain from therapy and what support I can offer you going forward.  

You will be are under no obligation or expectation to continue unless we both agree to work together. 

Going forward what to expect.

 As the working relationship develops you may feel able to explore more deeply. This increases self-awareness and as a result your confidence and self-esteem will grow. With increased awareness and understanding of past issues, you might like to implement changes for yourself, or simply find acceptance and take the next step.
