About me and my therapy practice
I have 20 years experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy within one of London's NHS hospital's to patients from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. This has enabled me wide experience in providing treatment for various difficulties, which include; post traumatic stress syndrome, trauma issues, depression, bullying, anxiety, panic attacks childhood issues sexual/physical abuse relationship/family difficulties, loss and bereavement,
I qualified in 1999 as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist in an Integrative therapy model, (person-centred/existential counselling model). I later trained in cognitive behavioural therapy, systemic family therapy, solution-focused therapy and counselling for depression (CFD) experiential model.
What Can You Expect from Your Treatment
Starting therapy may appear challenging if you are beginning therapy for the first time. However therapy is a natural place in which a person heals from psychological or emotional difficulties with a reflective and non directive space where the innate feelings are able to resurface and explored in this holding space, where development through this therapy occurs. You can expect to find counselling liberating, and a place where investing in your emotional well-being a valuable process in accessing and being ones true self.
Thank you kindly for your time.
My Best Wishes,

Personal Investment of Therapy
The opportunity to invest in ones mental health is essential to daily life. Good mental health is in fact the key to psychological freedom and psychological successful. The humanistic model of therapy which I provide is a confidential therapeutic space where a person is able to talk, confidentially and safely about life difficulties that may have affected ones self value or self esteem for many years. Through this talking therapy, an individual's organismic self, (true thoughts and feelings) is given the therapeutic environment surface where individuals are able to hear their true thoughts and feelings. Ones honesty in therapy, is essential for clients to achieve personal goals. Individuals can be assured of a non-judgemental, empathetic and honest clinical space to feel free to express difficult emotions, such as rage, anger, low self-esteem/worth, guilt or shame.
My first session
You can expect the space in your first session to be respected and heard alongside the ability to hear what you are expressing where your feelings are causing you pain. You will be able to work at your own pace, and you will not be judged for who you are but have the opportunity where you can feel confident, your story is confidential. The space to tell your story is yours and you can feel free to express your feelings in the context of how they are affecting you and hearing that back from me, so at the end of the session, you are better able to hear, listen or understand yourself.
