About me and my therapy practice
Thank you for clicking on my listing. Seeking help is the first step towards a happier future and I would like to help you find that future. If you scroll down you will find a list of the areas with which I am able to help.
Whilst I offer counselling on a range of issues, I also have a special interest in counselling for people dealing with anxiety or depression, especially those who have had difficulty with relationships or have suffered abuse.
People need relationships of all kinds, but if something is making this difficult for you the effects can be problematic, far-reaching and even overwhelming. You may be feeling anxiety, stress, low self-esteem or depression but all of these can be overcome with the right help.
I understand that trust can be a major hurdle, which can make reaching out that much harder. It isn't easy, and right now it may even seem impossible, but the freedom to talk to a warm, caring professional in a safe, supportive and confidential environment can help you work through your problems.
I respect confidentially and data protection by working strictly within the BACP's Ethical Framework.
I offer long-term, short-term and time-limited counselling, depending on your needs.
I have an office in Kingston (KT2) which is a safe, private room where you can be yourself without risk of being overheard.
The room I use is up one flight of stairs but it is possible for me to use a ground floor room so please let me know about your accessibility needs.
I also offer online counselling via Zoom.
You can contact me via this site, email or you can call or text me on the number above. All messages, of any type (including voicemail), remain completely confidential.
If you leave a message, I will aim to contact you within 24 hours. I will always reply to you, so if you ask to be contacted via email, please check your junk mail.
My first session
In our first session we will talk about you - what brings you to counselling and what your concerns and expectations are.
My aim is to help you feel at ease and safe, enabling you to talk freely. I understand that it can take time to build trust but in our first session I hope to lay the foundations to make you feel that you've found the right person to support you.
