About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist which means that I am trained to work in a variety of ways to help you with your personal and emotional problems. I will listen closely, and without judgement, to what you say, to help me walk alongside you as you explore your issues. We can discuss how past experience has affected your present-day feelings and circumstances. For distressing problems, like panic attacks and phobias, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) might help you.
I have experience of working in youth and adult counselling services and also in cancer and bereavement therapy. I have an MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Roehampton and a BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.
Facing up to problems and coming forward for counselling can be daunting. However, I aim to put you at your ease by creating an open, accepting and informal space where we work collaboratively on the issues you bring. Together we can identify the roots of your difficulties, what change might look like and what steps you can take to help you feel better.
I am very happy to work with you 'in person' or online depending on your preference and convenience. I use the secure conferencing platform Zoom for online sessions. I have consulting rooms at two locations in South West London: Hampton (TW2) and East Sheen (SW14). Covid measures are in place for 'in person' work.
My first session
The first session is an assessment consultation and is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to talk about what brings you to therapy. You may have questions about how therapy works and what you can expect from future sessions and I will ask you to tell me about your background, relationships and life events. Together we will decide if the approach I offer is right for you.
