About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified psychotherapist/counsellor, with a M.A. in Counselling/Psychotherapy, and have been working in this field with individuals and couples since 2000. I also have experience of providing supervision to others practising in this field, since 2008. I am based at my practice in Welling, near Bexleyheath. In addition, I see clients from the following areas : Bexley, Blackheath, Lewisham, Woolwich, Plumstead, Falconwood, Eltham, Sidcup, Shooters Hill, South East London and Kent.
I believe that it is important to create a respectful relationship with my clients. This means that we will work together in a confidential, non-judgemental space that enables you to express whatever is troubling you. From my experience this way of working at your own pace, can help you to face your issues which can lead to positive changes in your life.
Fundamental to my practice is my view of people that is characterised by an accepting, respectful attitude. This helps to create a safe, secure space that allows free expression of personal issues, or problems.
My work includes :
a) An exploration of how current problems may be connected to past relationships and events.
b) Exploring issues around anxiety. Helping clients to address the cause of their anxiety can improve their quality of life and their potential for change. Kevin Spacey's statement in American Beauty : " it's a great thing when you realise you still have the ability to surprise yourself ", clarifies an engagement with life where change is integral to health.
I am a recognised provider of counselling/psychotherapy services for a number of Private Health Insurance companies, including : Aviva Health, Exeter Family Friendly, Simply Health, Cigna, Pru Health and WPA .
Since 2007, I have been able to help many people who hold such a policy. I am also a BUPA recognised counsellor and psychotherapist.
