About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, which means I can draw on different approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-Centred and Psychodynamic therapies.  This allows me to work in a well rounded-way that is right for you. 

I recognise the impact that different life events can have on how we cope or experience the world. These might be family issues, relationship breakdown, losing a loved one, work stress or coping with financial or housing challenges. These can often lead to great emotional distress or feeling stuck and lost. 

Therefore in my sessions I create an accepting, empathic and safe  space. This will help you to speak openly about any emotional distress or life struggles, with a view to helping you understand what is going on for you, and to look at ways in which you can make longstanding change or develop helpful coping strategies.  

I have experience of counselling in a South London based charity supporting carers and  people who have experienced loss and bereavement.

I also currently work as a mental health practitioner in an NHS setting, supporting people (using a Cognitive Behavioural Modality) with common mental health problems. These include (among others) anxiety, worry, panic, phobias. stress, low mood and perinatal depression.
