About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm a BACP accredited counsellor with 26 years clinical experience. I love my job & it’s an honour to work alongside my clients at important parts in their lives.
I am currently offering ONLINE therapy during this time of 'social-distancing' & TELEPHONE counselling.
I qualified in 1993 with a Diploma in Integrative Counselling (AEB) & working at a well-woman clinic, supporting women with unplanned pregnancies. I set up a customer care training for doctors & a post-abortion service too.
I branched out as a freelance therapist working in The City.
I believe that everyone can benefit from a session of counselling.
Post-Graduate Certificate in Gestalt Psychotherapy Theory Studies, Gestalt Centre 1998- 2000
Masters in Psychodynamic Counselling at Goldsmiths University of London 2011.
Certificate in Integrative Clinical Supervision Regent’s University London 2013 Offering: Individual & Group Counselling & Supervision.
Freelance training ‘Introduction to Gestalt Counselling’ & ‘Cert In Humanistic Counselling Skills'
Facilitating Personal Development groups.
I have a general practice working with all people including high achievers, burn-out, bereavement, trauma, parenting, anxiety & on-going personal development.
All work is currently online due to government guidelines and social distancing. Online sessions are usually via ZOOM which is a nice and straightforward 'cloud-based' video conferencing tool. For safety, it is also highly encrypted for our confidential work together. Zoom is reliable and the technical side is very straightforward, just click a link that I send you and we are in the room together. You don't have to download anything on your device.
WhatsApp video can also be used as an option, although I think it is less encrypted but a good option .
My first session
First session is an assessment, this session lasts up to an hour.
It is the best time for you to assess whether you feel comfortable talking with me and for me to assess how I can best support you psychologically.
Some people feel nervous opening up about what is bringing them there and others dive in. The most important thing to remember is that it is your session and we can do this at your pace. I will ask you some questions and I don't expect you to answer them if you don't want to. We will discuss confidentiality, your safety and what has brought you to therapy. The session will start and finish on time and I am not there to tell you what to do, more like to support you in what you need to talk about and explore how you are thinking, feeling emotionally and bodily.
