About me and my therapy practice

I am committed to providing counselling as affordably as possible  and working in a person-centred and non-judgmental way. I have benefitted from undertaking counselling myself which is how I ended up training. 

I work part time in a non-related field and maintain a private counselling practice in Woodford, East London. I am female, white British, age 49. I do not consider myself religious but am accepting of others' beliefs.

I hold a Diploma in person-centred counselling from Metanoia Institute and undertook placements at Mind and at the University of East London.  I am happy to work on a time-limited basis or longer term. 

I have experience in a broad range of issues and continually develop my skills and knowledge via workshops and other training opportunities. 

In addition to my Diploma I have undertaken further training and workshops in group work; pre-therapy in psychiatric settings; fantasies and trauma; working with sight-loss; play therapy; embodied therapy ; working with people withdrawing from prescribed psychiatric medication; person-centred approaches to trauma and working creatively with trauma.

Whilst my experience is broad, the majority of the clients I have worked with have been struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, worries and general unhappiness.

My counselling room is well ventilated for face to face working and I do not generally offer online / telephone counselling.
