About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and an Occupational Psychologist with over 30 years experience working in organisations and with individuals. I have a first degree and a Masters in Psychology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
I offer short and long term counselling to adults and young people (16+ years) and to Couples. I also offer workshops and presentations in organisations on the subject of mental health.
I offer confidential face-to-face and online therapy to help you gain a greater understanding of why you feel the way you do. I am trained to listen and offer a non-judgemental environment where you can talk through your problems and find ways of making choices to improve your quality of life.
I use a relational-integrative approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy. Studies have shown that the most important aspect for a successful therapy outcome is the relationship between the client and the therapist itself. Therefore, it is important to have an initial assessment session to ensure the relationship is beneficial for you.
I work with clients on an individual basis dealing with a wide range of issues. The length of time clients work with me varies according to the needs of each person and includes both longer term psychotherapeutic work as well as short term solution focused counselling. In broad terms, short term counselling will typically be 6 – 12 sessions whilst working psychotherapeutically at greater depth will take longer.
You are at the heart of my practice, so the foundation of my work is client-centred and humanistic. This means you can expect to be accepted as you are, with empathy and without judgement, and for me to be open and genuine with you.
I work in private practice based in Wandsworth and on Zoom.
For Individual therapy the sessions are 50 minutes long, weekly at the same time each week.
For Couples Counselling the sessions are 60 minutes once a week or 90 minutes every two weeks.
My first session
In your first session I will offer you a space in order for you to feel comfortable to be yourself with me. I will listen to what has been going on and what issues you are facing. I will ask some questions to make sure I understand you as well as possible, and you can ask me any questions you have too. It will be a chance for us to begin to get to know each other. We will discuss what you want from counselling and we will agree how we will work together. Getting the most personal growth out of therapy is all about the strength of the therapeutic relationship. Do you feel safe with me, do I 'get' you? Can you be vulnerable with me? Do you feel that I can support you?
