About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor with 9 years experience. I work with both adults and children from my practice in Charing Cross. Trained in an integrative approach, I can adapt my skills to best match what you or your child needs from counselling.
Counselling for Adults
Asking for help can be difficult and as your counsellor I will be sensitive to how nervous you might be feeling and open to answering any questions you may have about how counselling works. I will look to build a genuine connection with you so you can feel comfortable talking about any difficult thoughts and feelings. Often people experience a great sense of relief when first opening up about problems in their lives. However, over time counselling can also help you feel more confident in yourself and more in control of your life again.Whilst many people will want to talk about their issues, this can be a very limited way of working for some. I can offer more structured or creative techniques where we both feel this is appropriate.
Counselling for 4-11 years
Parents and carers can self-refer their child for counselling with myself. I am qualified by Play Therapy UK to use play, art and talking therapy to support children to communicate difficulties in their lives in a way that works and feels comfortable for them. Using developmentally appropriate techniques, I can assess and apply my skills to enhance emotional wellbeing and promote positive behaviour in children. Parents and carers are collaborated with throughout their child's counselling whilst still maintaining the confidentiality their child needs to work through difficult feelings or experiences. Costs for counselling are higher for children due to the variety of creative materials, toys and games provided. Sessions are charged at £50 per session.
