About me and my therapy practice
Many people struggle with the challenges of life and their own lived experience. For some this is too overwhelming to manage and can lead to depression, anxiety or health issues. Life can feel lonely and too hard to manage. I offer you a safe space to explore any issues you are struggling with. In confidence and with compassion I will listen to you without judgement, and together we will explore a way forward. I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapeutic Counsellor, and registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I work integratively using a range of therapeutic approaches, and primarily my focus is person-centred. I help my clients explore, unlock and discover themselves beyond their lived experience, and help them to find inner peace for a happier life.
I offer a comfortable and confidential listening space in my home in Wallington. I also offer outdoor sessions in my local park for those clients needing to walk and talk. This can be particularly beneficial for people having experienced trauma and are suffering with symptoms related to that. I can offer a mixture of both if that is required.
For some clients, talking can be difficult at first and they can struggle to express thoughts and feelings in the beginning. I use a variety of techniques including mindfulness, breathwork and meditation to help those clients settle into the session. I also teach these techniques to help clients ground themselves in times of distress or anxiety outside of the therapy room.
It is important that you feel comfortable with me as your Counsellor and I offer you a free 20 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs and my availability, and for you to feel comfortable before meeting with me.
Each session will last 60 minutes.
My first session
Your first session will be for 75 minutes, at no extra cost. This is so I have more time to hear your story, get to know you, and for me to understand your goals. During this session we explore what brings you to therapy and we will establish how long you want to work with me. I take notes in this first session, and in subsequent sessions I make notes afterwards. These are brief and all notes are kept confidential and stored in a locked cabinet. I recommend sessions to be weekly at first and depending upon how long we work together this could reduce to fortnightly. We can discuss this during our first session.
