About me and my therapy practice

Life can be overwhelming. Perhaps things are feeling too much right now, but you are telling yourself that you *should* be able to handle it. Maybe you are happy to support others, but struggle to give yourself permission to ask for help.

You no longer have to do it alone. 

I can offer you a warm, safe, non-judgemental space to explore and express what is causing you difficulty, supporting you to reconnect with yourself, with others, and with your life. I do this by helping you raise awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours in the present moment, allowing you to look for new possibilities and to respond to life in a more balanced and choiceful way.

I work with adults on an individual basis. These are some of the things people bring to my practice. It is by no means an exhaustive list, and nothing is too small to bring to counselling if it is causing you difficulty or distress.

  • Feeling anxious
  • Feeling overwhelmed, stressed or burnt out
  • Feeling stuck, trapped, or lost
  • Feeling low, sad, or depressed
  • Low confidence or low self-esteem
  • Life changes or periods of change
  • Relationship difficulties; or difficulty connecting with others

Qualifications & training

I am a fully qualified, registered counsellor, having trained at The Gestalt Centre, London. I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), and I adhere to their ethical guidelines. My registered member number is: 389602.

Diploma in Counselling - The Gestalt Centre

Certificate in Humanistic Counselling - The Gestalt Centre

Practice description

I am currently offering online counselling sessions via a video platform. Online sessions have many benefits:

  • Save time: Online counselling fits around your lifestyle. There's no need to travel, saving you time and planning. This makes online counselling well-suited to those with busy schedules.
  • Access counselling, wherever you are: You may live in, or often travel to, a different area (or even country). Online sessions offer a way to break down those geographical barriers to your preferred counsellor. With online sessions, you can access counselling, wherever you are.
  • Stay comfortable: Online counselling allows you to access counselling from the comfort of your own space.
  • Connect: In my experience, online counselling allows for deep, moving, and vibrant connection, just as with face-to-face counselling. Have you ever laughed or cried at a film or TV show? If so, you have experienced the powerful emotion and connection that can be conveyed and received through a screen.

How will I work with you?

In keeping with my training, my main approach to counselling is relational Gestalt therapy. The approach focuses on what is happening between you and I in the present moment to help us identify and understand habitual patterns of relating with others, and to support you in raising your awareness of your thoughts, feelings, sensations, and behaviours. I will often pay attention to what might be happening between you and I, and I will gently invite you to do the same. The Gestalt approach can also be creative, and if it seems helpful and if you are happy to, I may invite us to experiment with new ways for resolving your difficulties.

My first session

Introductory telephone call - FREE

I offer a free, no obligation, 20-minute telephone call for us to meet one another and see whether it feels right. During this call, we will discuss what brings you to counselling, and you can ask any questions you might have about me and how I work.

Weekly individual counselling session - £50

If we choose to work together following the introductory telephone call, we will then arrange our initial counselling session, and an ongoing time to meet weekly. Counselling sessions are 50 minutes long.
