About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced counsellor, life coach and NLP Practitioner, working with private and corporate clients. Educated to Masters degree level my approach combines the therapeutic benefits of counselling with the more solution focused approach of coaching allowing  my clients to have a fully immersive experience. Sometimes what stops us from moving forward is something related to our past and without therapeutic resolution of that issue, growth will not be as transformative. Counselling tends to deal with past and present issues and coaching helps us move forward to future related goals.

I enjoy helping people explore their inner world in order to make changes in their outer world. I use visualisation, mindfulness, story telling and metaphors in order to help my clients make sense of theirselves. This deep inner exploration allows for clients to understand why they act and think in the way they do and how they may wish to change that. I help clients find confidence, heal past trauma, recover from mental health issues, be more productive and transform their lives. I am an ex City Vice president working with City executives  I am also experienced with working with clients from the arts - musicians, actors, artists and producers. I have worked with the Amy Winehouse foundation helping young women recovering from addiction. Through my interest in yoga, meditation and spiritual practice I can also help people with issues around their beliefs and religion.

Practice description

I am currently offering all sessions online, through either Zoom, Skype or FaceTime. My previous face to face clients have successfully migrated to online therapy without any difficulties and feedback is good, clients often reporting that they prefer the flexibility of the service.

My first session

My first sessions always involves me listening to why that person is coming to see me, what they would like to achieve in the sessions and how we would work together in the future.

I believe the success of therapy happens under the umbrella of a good client - practitioner relationship. Therefore I believe it is important that clients can meet me in order to see if I am the right 'fit' for them. Therefore I offer a free 30 minute consultation either face to face or via telephone or online.
