About me and my therapy practice

I am a professionally trained counsellor working in Herne Hill, South London. I offer an empathetic and non-judgemental space in which to better understand your needs and concerns.

I work with individual adults on a weekly basis. I see clients at Herne Hill Space Therapy Rooms which are located close to Herne Hill and Effra Space community centre within walking distance of Brixton Station. I also offer online counselling.

I believe that successful counselling should result in positive changes to your wellbeing and present day life experiences. I aim to help you achieve a deeper understanding of yourself so you can resolve inner conflicts. I believe that this is best achieved by developing curiosity and self-compassion and I offer a safe, understanding counselling relationship in which to do this.

I can provide tools and insights that can help you understand the ways in which you relate to others so that you can build healthy and affirming relationships. We can also explore how past relationships and unresolved issues are impacting your present. 

I want you to achieve a practical understanding of your present problems and opportunities so that you can make confident and informed decisions. It is my belief that counselling and therapy can have a lasting impact and I work towards this goal with my clients.

Practice description

I am a professionally trained counsellor working in Herne Hill, South London. I work with individual adults on a weekly basis.

I am an integrative counsellor which means I use more than one counselling theory in my work. I can help you explore how past event are impacting you in the present. 

I can help you explore unhelpful patters of relating to others, help you set better boundaries or achieve life or work goals.

I can help you work through the impact of bereavement, loss, discrimination or ill health.

I aim to help you build a better understanding and sense of self in order that you can explore what gives you meaning and purpose.

I can work with a range of issue but I have particular experience in the following areas:

- Anxiety and depression

- Bereavement and loss

- Patterns of relating to others

- Low confidence and self esteem

- Trauma recovery

- Unhelpful habits or behaviour

- Indecision or feeling stuck

- Feeling more hopeful and future goals

- Navigating life stages

- Exploring faith and spirituality

My first session

The first full session will include an assessment in which we will explore issues in more depth and during which I will assess if I am the best person to help you. 

This is also to give you an opportunity to find out whether you would like to continue working with me. There is no paperwork to complete in advance and I hope that this session will feel open and collaborative.
