About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor, working in south-east London. My therapeutic approach is based on creating an empathic, safe space for you to explore, resolve or reconcile with troubling or distressing feelings and experiences.

Talking therapy is a deep and long-lasting way to work through life’s challenges. In fact, studies now show that effective therapy works better and is more enduring than medication.

Counselling provides a safe space in which you can explore issues that are affecting you and nurture your self-awareness. For some of us, the experience of therapy may be the first time we feel listened to and fully understood and this in itself can lead to powerful self-growth.

The relationship that is formed with a counsellor may feel very different to other relationships. It is confidential environment, held for you, in which there is no right or wrong and where no judgments are made.

Counselling sessions take place weekly and last for 50 minutes. I tend to work within an open-ended model of therapy, which enables clients to go at their own pace and reach a deeper level of healing and self-growth. I also offer a short-term counselling model of twelve sessions, which may be more suitable if you are facing or have recently experienced a specific life event or transition.

An initial assessment meeting will help us to determine together which type of therapy is in your best interests. It gives us the change to establish whether we will be a good fit for each other and gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about our sessions or counselling in general.

I hold a Certificate in Humanistic Counselling, a Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. I am a professional member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by their ethics, standards and practices.
