About me and my therapy practice

I have helped people with many different issues in various counselling services in South West London and overseas, where I lived for some years. This has given me a better understanding of people who have been through changes, and how this might translate as a focus of our work.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ( BACP) and abide by their code of Ethics and Practice. I am in ongoing supervision and professional training development.

I do appreciate how difficult it can be to decide whether or not you need counselling. I seek to foster a confidential and ethical service that gives my clients the space to explore all issues that are important to them.

Practice description

Based in Barnes South West London I hold an MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have been trained in different approaches including Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Grief therapy, and Relational therapy, and I incorporate Cognitive Behavioural therapy, if I feel it will be helpful to the client at some point.

This allows me to work with clients in a way that is appropriate to the clients needs. 

Integrative therapy is an approach that emphasises the Value of all individuals .

I have worked at as a  registered nurse , and have been working in the field for 30 years +.

Nursing interventions are concerned with empowering people and helping them to gain independence. My work as a psychotherapist also looks at healing and growth and development whilst working in partnership.

My first session

The first session is an assessment. This is to see if both I and the clients can feel happy working together.

I do take basic notes at this session. We discuss days , and times, and fees , that suit both client and therapist. There is always a place for negotiation on all we discuss. 

If we do continue on to regular therapy, we will discuss my assessments of your needs, and together negotiate a working contract. What ever issues you bring to the sessions, we will explore together, and what you would like to achieve.

This is an open session so clients can ask questions, and I can inform clients how I work , especially discussing confidentiality and how that works with my therapy sessions.

About me and my therapy practice

I have been trained in many approaches, including Integrative combining Psychodynamic, and Attachment Therapy. I use CBT as an add-on to my work.

I feel that the facilitation of a person's "wholeness" to improve their quality of life is one of the most important features of Integrative therapy. I attempt to bring together all aspects of the personality, such as feelings, perceptions and unresolved conflicts into a cohesive whole, which can then encourage the client to approach life more positively.

In addition to my private practice, I have been a nurse working in the field of adult and children's nursing. Nursing interventions are concerned with empowering people and helping them to achieve independence. My work as psychotherapist also looks at healing, growth and development whilst working in partnership.

Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Cancer, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Depression, Disability, Health related issues, Loss, Pregnancy related issues, Relationships, Self esteem, Stress, Trauma, Women's issues, Work related issues
