About me and my therapy practice

My training and therapeutic approach is integrative, drawing upon a number of frameworks to provide the appropriate support for each client’s unique, personal experience. 

I work with various presenting issues which may be long-standing, or the result of a current event or crisis. Current-day pace of life and challenges can be extremely stressful, and anxiety-provoking, making it hard to cope and function.

My journey and training in Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy has evolved over the last 20 years. I completed a BSc in Psychology in 2002. Since that time I have attended numerous training courses completing the Foundation Course in Counselling at Regent’s University in 2007. I then trained as a bereavement Counsellor for Cruse in 2012 and worked as a volunteer Counsellor and at a private practice in central London. Bereavement and loss can be complex and nuanced and I offer a safe and confidential space to support you through the grieving process.

I completed my MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regent’s University in 2018 and my dissertation was on the topic of Resilience. I have also completed a number of additional short courses.

Much of my training and voluntary work was completed while also working in various senior roles in the corporate world. I have worked extensively with individuals and organisations undergoing major change often resulting in employees being made redundant and requiring outplacement services. I have worked with most sectors and industries both in the private sector and more recently the NHS.

The key focus in my work has always been helping individuals to reach their full potential. These experiences have given me real insight into the many challenges and demands we all face in the current world and gives me a lot to draw upon when helping clients in the therapeutic setting.

Practice description

During the current lockdown I am seeing clients remotely, either by video conference or telephone. 

For face to face sessions my practice is centrally located and a short walk from Upminster station. Sessions are 50 minutes in duration, usually held at the same time every week. Additional sessions can be organised if you need extra support. I have availability from 8am to 8pm.

My first session

During the current lockdown I am seeing clients remotely, either by video conference or telephone.

I appreciate that making that first step towards therapy can be a difficult one. Also, the relationship between therapist and client is the key to successful therapy. 

I offer a free, no obligation initial call or appointment (usually lasting 30-40 minutes) for us both to explore whether I can help and to answer any questions you may have about me and how I work. If you decide to go ahead we will then agree a regular time to meet.
