About me and my therapy practice

This might be your first time, looking for a therapist. It might feel strange, or you might feel a little nervous. Maybe you’ve been here before and are looking for a new counsellor or psychotherapist to help you understand what you are going through. Perhaps right at this moment you are in absolute crisis and it may not matter who you speak to, just a kind and listening ear will do. I am here to help you and can offer a friendly and warm space to talk, in my consulting room in Crystal Palace, SE19, or online.

I trained as a Person-Centred counsellor and psychotherapist and have over 7 years’ experience working within the NHS offering time limited sessions and also in private practice doing more longer-term work. Therapy will be different for different people. No one size fits all. No one therapist fits all! You might have a few sessions in mind or perhaps would like a longer period of open- ended work to talk through what’s been troubling you.

My job is to stay alongside you as you explore your internal world, a trained companion if you like, who will take your lead and encourage you to notice and be curious. You might explore things that are hard to explain, painful or sad. We can look at what you might need, and the things that get in the way of what you want. 

The opportunities for growth are endless.
