Some days in the week are reserved for online counselling sessions only. 

In some cases, I provide flexible appointment structures but this would have to be discussed in our initial consultation. Generally, regular sessions (scheduled at the same time and day each week) are recommended.

About me and my therapy practice

I provide relational therapy with a focus on the integration of our bodily, emotional and thought-based processes. What does this mean in practice? It means that, without us being aware, some experiences can create a deep-seated imprint on our psyche. It is therefore my belief that therapy which pays attention to all three spheres (physical, emotional and cognitive levels of being) can substantially support us in moving forward and fostering resilience and inner balance.

I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Level 2 Sensorimotor Psychotherapist, which means that I am trained in a range of different counselling models. At its baseline, my practice follows humanistic philosophies and is trauma-informed. 

This means that in my role as a counsellor, I do not tend to take an 'expert' stance and instead hold the belief that most human beings are naturally oriented towards growth. In this vein, therapy, can be seen as a co-operative process in which we can explore, untangle, and resolve life blocks or constricting patterns together. 

Practice description

I offer face-to-face counselling sessions in the Kingston-upon-Thames area, as well as online therapy sessions utilising Zoom.

I have both NHS and private practice experience which has led me to provide counselling for a range of symptoms and mental health matters (e.g. depression, relationship problems, and anxiety). 

In addition to this, I have specialised in providing therapy for the mental health impacts of complex trauma, sudden loss, and our relationship to chronic and rare health conditions. I also have experience in the therapeutic exploration of the impacts of family estrangement, as well as issues that can arise in relation to sexual orientation (e.g. coming out and internalised shame). 

In the past I have worked for a local Women's Centre, The Samaritans Charity, and therapy groups for people who experienced severe traumatic bereavements. 

My first session
