About me and my therapy practice
I have been offering therapeutic counselling to clients since 2012. Initially working with new parents and helping them build confidence to build a loving relationship with their children. In 2018, I expanded my practice to support clients suffering with anxiety, depression and relationship challenges. My broad experience supporting parents has created a unique approach to counselling because I have observed the parent/child relationship from birth. I therefore work with clients to gain understanding into where your anxiety originated. Gaining insight to how patterns of behaviour was learnt, releases us from past traumatic experiences. New coping skills can then be learnt to enhance enjoyment in everyday life and to value your individuality.
Counselling offers a confidential place for clients to talk freely about their difficulties in a non-judgemental environment. Receiving long term support from someone who listens to your turmoil and fears enables you to discover ways to enrich your life and regain some control. The death of a close member of your family or friend, even if estranged can trigger challenging thoughts, deep sadness and create physical symptoms. Together we will identify the roots of anxiety, depression and relationship challenges and work on creating new coping skills to navigate daily life.
My first session
The first session is a time to get to know each other and decide if we can work together. The therapeutic relationship is built on trust, hopefully this is felt during the first session, but sometimes takes a few sessions. There are certain safety questions we have to ask clients and gather GP and contact details, and explain our particular style of counselling, but there is always time to talk through the reasons a client feels they need help and some clarity on their thoughts and feelings.
I offer sessions on zoom and in a practice in Balham, London SW12
