About me and my therapy practice

Therapy can be a life changing experience, a time for growth,  exploration and personal development. You may be coming in the hope to resolve some past or current experiences that you find overwhelming, or you may feel confused, lost, stuck, experience difficult symptoms or unhelpful behaviours that inhibit you living life to the full.  Whatever your reasons are for starting therapy, we will work together to find the right approach for you.  

Being an integrative therapist, I bring together many pathways that can offer different approaches, tools and techniques tailored to fit the needs of each client. Integrative therapy is a progressive therapy offering flexibility and builds on the latest understanding of psychotherapy, neuroscience and how our mind, bodies and spirits are all connected.

It is fundamental that you find a therapist you can work with and trust.  The better the relationship between you and your therapist the more likely you are going to benefit and see changes in your life through your coping strategies, relationships, thought patterns, behaviours and/or perspective. 

I deeply respect difference and actively practice anti-racism. I welcome people of any gender identity, sexuality, background or with any relationship style.  Respect and compassion is the cornerstone of my practice.

I trained at the The Minster Centre, a leading Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy training college.  My qualification is a five-year BACP-accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling.  I am also completing an MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a Registered Member of the BACP and abide by their ethical framework. 

Practice description

I offer short (6-12 sessions) or long-term (or ongoing) therapy which will be negotiated between us.  Each session will be 50 minutes long and take place at the same time and place each week.  

In these current times, our ability to meet and support one another have been restricted. In response, we have had to be more creative and flexible and maximise our use of technology to ensure that support continues. 

I am currently working online (end to end encrypted video calls) and on the telephone.   Subject to restrictions, I will be aiming to offer face-to-face, in person sessions from January 2021 as well as continuing with online and telephone sessions to maintain ongoing flexibility.  However the therapy takes place, I will ensure that it is private and confidential. 

When working face-to-face, I see clients in north-west and central London. 

My first session

Starting therapy can be daunting and it is really important you find the right therapist for you.  I offer a first non committal first session which I will not charge for if we decide not to work together. If we do decide to work together this first session will cost a flat rate of £50.  We can explore your reasons for coming to therapy and whether I might be well placed to work with you.

If you prefer you can email, text or WhatsApp me and/or we can have short 10-15 minute complimentary conversation for me to find out more about you and for you to ask me anything about me and how I work.
