About me and my therapy practice

In this sad time of Covid-19, I’ve adapted my practice to offer: Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp or mobile/phone counselling.

The COVID-19 pandemic is placing into question, directly or indirectly, how we relate to others and ourselves - our fears, anxieties, stresses, desires, ability to seek help, health, intimacy & relationship communication with loved ones. We ask why now? How can I/we get through this? Am I depressed? How can I handle my anxiety?

My passion is to support and walk alongside my clients experience of uncertainty & change - from couples & individuals who feel it's make or break to families in conflict. As a specialist relationship counsellor, I can help you navigate the challenges and fears you face together or alone. I've been featured on BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06hfxg9

Being a relationship specialist, I use my insight and expertise to work with you on your issues, helping you “stop being stuck” and moving you forward.

In my work, I see many people struggling with how they communicate - often this can be symptomatic of something else, from infidelity, depression to sexual or family issues. Often the same patterns keep repeating. I can help you break this cycle.

Together we find new ways of being, with tools to help you manage better and navigate life’s twists and turns. I help my clients to dig deeper and look beyond their behaviour and emotions, so that they feel they are more in control.

Now more than ever, I can help you through one of the toughest times in history. As I used to live in SE London (last 20 years) and recently moved north, I understand the strains & nuances the Capital can bring. Whatever part of  London, email or call me and we will work through the rest together.

Practice description

As a counsellor, my practice and how I am accessed by people is hugely important to me - particularly, NOW, during this climate of a global health pandemic.

The online/virtual world is going to be everyone's saving grace - allowing people to connect and gain help, support and guidance. My practice is usually in person, with a small amount of people I work with online. But now, it is all online counselling - to assist in managing the spread of the Coronavirus.

Being trained in many different psychological theories, from psychodynamic to mindfulness, I will adapt and fuse my training according to the needs of the people I work with - to be of most benefit to them.

My practice is open to all people. In the past, I worked with a charity, supporting parents, the elderly & vulnerable adults with issues such as pregnancy, depression, anxiety, isolation, eating disorders, abuse, personality difficulties, race, age, gender & sexuality. Please don't hesitate to get in touch and talk through how online counselling might work and could adapt to your situation, now that many of us are in isolation.

For families and couples - there are online tools, such as Zoom, FaceTime and WhatsApp video that all allow more than two people to communicate if in different locations. As a couple doing online counselling, it's simply a matter of positioning your laptops, ipads or phones on a stand or against something where both of you can be seen - which all makes sense once we start - I will help you with this. Individual counselling online works in the same way. 

My first session

Our first session, is always your time to tell your story and be heard. You can ask any questions that you have and get to feel what it is like to talk to someone, such as myself, in a completely non-judgemental and confidential way.

I will contract with you in the first session, discuss what confidentiality and data protection mean, time boundaries, payment and cancellations. I will email over this information before the first session and then ask you to sign the agreement that you have understood what confidentiality means. I provide the forms in session for you to do this.

In addition, the first consultation is always at a slightly reduced price to allow you to absorb and work out if you are happy to carry on or not. There is no obligation to continue.

But most importantly, the first session sets up the beginning of your process to seek change, understand your issues and find a way forward that helps you become unstuck and breathe again.
