Availability

I am a BACP registered integrative counsellor and therapist currently working in Peckham and Camberwell. My working schedule is Monday to Friday 8.00 am to 6.00 pm with some limited later evening availability.

I am comfortable and able to offer online sessions to suit different requirements.

About me and my therapy practice

“Psychotherapy is the attempt of two people to recover the wholeness of being human through the relationship between them” R.D. Laing. 


I am an established BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist and I work with my clients referring mainly to an integrative approach, offering a broad set of tools deriving from different theories and schools. It gives me the chance to be flexible and to adapt my work to fit my client’s needs and requests. I believe that each of us has an inner capacity for healing and my role is to shed light on it, supporting you to find and use the resources that you already have within yourself.

Life can be very challenging and many of us can experience distress and confusion in different forms: relational difficulties, sexual and identity issues, loneliness, emptiness, intrusive thoughts and anxiety that seem to have no explanation. My role is to welcome you in your wholeness as a person and to work with you towards understanding your difficulties within context. You can expect me to be present, attentive and available to explore any challenges that you are currently facing with curiosity, integrity, and respect.


Practice description

Finding the right therapist for you is essential. It can be a daunting task to know what to look for or what to ask. You will need someone you can work with and trust. I can offer a confidential, non-judgemental and open space.
