About me and my therapy practice
It's good to talk, even better to be heard. I like to help people find their voice by building a safe and trusting space together. I've worked with many issues, including:
trauma, generalised anxiety, intrusive thoughts, depression, addiction, compulsions, sexuality, coming out, shame, bereavement and loss, managing anger
I'm particularly interested in working with young LGBT+ people who have been shown to be at greater risk of mental ill health than their straight counterparts. Being bullied at school because of one’s sexuality is sadly still common, and the trauma caused by this in later life affects many.
People often come to counselling feeling stuck and unable to move on from a difficult situation in their life, whether it happened recently or many years in the past. I try to work with this feeling of 'stuckness' by offering a calm and containing environment, where you can express exactly what you are feeling without fear of being rejected.
Experience: since qualifying as a therapist I have worked for the NHS offering short term, solution focused therapy to people who were referred by their GP's. I have also worked within a university counselling service providing free therapy to students.
In the current environment I am offering a free initial assessment, followed by weekly online sessions for £30 to all clients. Normally I see clients in Central London.
I have a diploma in integrative counselling, and my training took place at City Lit. I also have a Bachelors degree in Psychology.
