About me and my therapy practice

Finding a counsellor can be an unnerving prospect. I know. It can be a confusing process to manoeuvre whilst life is already challenging. Hopefully I can make this a little easier for you.

I aim to be personable and engaging whilst you share your experience with me. Working with me means that I will aim to create a space to work on yourself to achieve what you need to resolve the discomfort that you’re experiencing. Plus, I will offer this space in a way that is sensitive and accepting to your individual background and identity.

I offer a free 30 minute consultation (either online or on the phone) to discuss your initial needs, but also for you to see what it might be like to work with me.

The first session will be an exploration to help define how we can work together to forge a plan that will help you feel better. Sometimes, it can be so overwhelming that some things can’t be easily and immediately defined. And that’s OK too. Having the space to talk can be helpful in itself, and we’ll be building a collaborative relationship that can support the future exploration for you to gain clarity and move forward in life.

Sessions are 50 minutes long. I offer both open-ended and short-term work (up to 15 weeks). Sessions can be online or face-to-face (in Kentish Town, NW5 or High Barnet, EN5).

Whatever challenges you face, counselling can be the most empowering thing you could do for your wellbeing.

Practice description

From a practical perspective, I'm a qualified Integrative counsellor, so I work using Person-Centred theory combined within a grounding of Psychodynamic practise. 

What this means for you is that my work can be creative and engaging, but to a level where you're comfortable. Perhaps you just need some guided exploration and space to reflect on where it leads. This is always a good starting point, but as your journey continues, I'll work to make sure that we're using a solution which suits and benefits you.

I have a special interest in inherited and generational trauma, as well as third culture identity work. I also support work where the use of technology has inflicted trauma.

My first session

I offer a free 30 minute consultation which can be done either online or by telephone.

After that, we will have our first 50 minute online session which is framed around a check-in, where we'll explore your needs and goals a little further, and build a plan to achieve this. 

Both of these sessions are also an opportunity to discuss any  questions that you might have about the counselling process and resolve any concerns that you might have. 

They're also a chance for you to see what it might be like to work with me. Therapy can be a long-term relationship so it’s important that you feel comfortable and safe with me too.
