Welcome. I work weekdays including evenings, with sessions currently being either on Zoom or on the phone, although I will be commencing face-to-face sessions from early 2022 in the Wimbledon/Putney/Wandsworth area of SW London. I always seek to accommodate clients’ availability and needs, so please do not hesitate to contact me to explore how we can work together. I offer a free initial 15 minute online or phone session to discuss your situation, expectations, and hopes, and for you to gain a sound impression of whether you feel we could work together.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified integrative counsellor with a wealth of life experience gained from the Armed Forces, commercial operations management, adult education within prisons, working with victims of crime, and as a Samaritan for 13 years. As well as private practice, I am also a volunteer counsellor in a low-cost agency. I believe that everyone has the potential to identify and resolve their issues, and I feel it is my privilege in helping them in this process.

Practice description

I offer integrative therapy, flexibly incorporating a variety of therapeutic models as appropriate throughout our sessions together. I strive to create an empathic, validating, and trusting environment in which you feel safe to explore your issues in your own time, without judgement or pressure from me.

My first session

You may well be apprehensive, especially if you are unsure what to expect, and I will do my utmost to put you at ease and to welcome you into a safe and trusting environment. We will begin by establishing our working relationship which will include recognising the ethical and safe nature of our work, what you hope to achieve from it, and some ways in which we can work towards your goals. It has taken you courage even to consider counselling, and some of your processing will be emotionally painful for you; I hope, through our work together, you will reap its potential benefits.
