About me and my therapy practice
Perhaps this is a time in your life when circumstances seem very difficult for you to manage. Is there something you haven’t been able to think through which is stopping you from progressing? Something which feels distressing and yet seemingly even harder to improve or resolve.
I am a calm and friendly counsellor and I work with adults who are looking to build their confidence, gain a new perspective on life and increase their self respect. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore what it is you are concerned about. You may come with goals in mind, or these may form as we go along. Together we can consider what possibilities you have, in your circumstances, to foster change so that you do more that you want to do and less that others want you to do. I work with individuals aged 18 years and older.
Currently, I work with zoom and on the telephone, and I offer face to face work or a mix of face to face and online, based in Enfield.
I qualified as a Person-Centred counsellor in 2013 and I am also trained to use Person-Centred art therapy skills as a practitioner member of APCCA (apcca.org.uk). sometimes it seems hard to put something into words, such as why you are feeling particularly anxious or depressed, it might seem hard to know how to begin, so I might offer this as an alternative way of working, if you want to. It is a gentle but powerful way to start exploring underlying issues.
I have worked with survivors of sexual and domestic abuse, with those suffering bereavement or loss, those living with a serious medical condition and with clients whose family relationships are strained or broken.
Often, my clients say they don’t know where to start, and feel disheartened because they can’t see a way through, however they want to make changes because being so stuck is making them unhappy.
Within a safe listening relationship you will get the opportunity to experience acceptance, respect and support, which can restore confidence, open your perspective and rebalance your ideas about who you are.
My first session
During my first session, which lasts 50 minutes, I will ask for some personal details and listen while you outline what has brought you to me. You probably know what you are looking for as regards a therapist and will need to ask me questions too. It is a time for you to weigh up whether to embark upon therapy with me. My first session therefore is free.
