About me and my therapy practice

My aim is to provide an empathic, warm and supportive space, where my clients feel safe to explore, express and process their most difficult thoughts and feelings, without fear of judgement. I apply  an integrative approach, which means I understand that each client is a unique individual, and I aim to draw on approaches to fit the needs of the client. By working collaboratively, I support clients through the process of examining their thoughts and feelings from the past and the present, guiding the client towards new perspectives and a better understanding of themselves and how they relate to others. I believe the therapeutic space should be a safe and nurturing place which is free from judgement, where clients can process their most difficult feelings, and move forward with realistic and fulfilling ways to manage their challenges, in a more satisfying and fulfilling way.

With a background in media, I understand and relates to the pressures that individuals can find themselves under. I work with clients to build their esteem and understanding of themselves, guiding them towards greater self-awareness and increasing their ability to make decisions and the much needed changes in their lives

I am an integrative therapeutic counsellor and i'm a registered member of the BACP. My integrative approach sees me drawing from a range of theories, allowing me to tailor the therapy, to address the individual issues and needs my clients bring. Working in private practise at The Awareness Centre in Clapham, I offer sessions on both a short term and open-ended basis.
