About me and my therapy practice
Life can present us with a myriad of challenges, and at times, we all need a guiding hand to navigate them. I'm here to offer that support as an integrative counsellor and therapist, trained in working with children, young people, and adults. With a diverse background in schools, colleges, non-profit organisations, community services (in partnership with NHS Trusts), and the private sector, I've had the privilege of helping individuals like you address various emotional and mental health issues.
People seek counseling for various reasons—feeling lost, coping with bereavement, managing anxiety, dealing with depression, or processing past traumas. Counselling provides a safe, nurturing space to explore your inner and external worlds, effecting lasting, positive changes in your life.
Tailored Support for You
I use an integrative approach to counselling, drawing from psychodynamic, humanistic, attachment, creative and systemic theories. This approach is customised to your unique needs, incorporating conversations, creative exercises, or play therapy. My style is warm, empathetic, and approachable, creating an environment where you can feel secure and supported.
Compassion, Presence, and Authenticity
In my practice, I've found that compassion, presence, and authenticity are essential in building a meaningful therapeutic relationship. These qualities create the necessary conditions for positive psychological change to happen. I'm committed to providing you with the understanding and genuine connection you need to facilitate your personal development.
Counselling takes place in a comfortable and informal setting, just 12 minute’s walk from Clapham South or 15 minutes from Balham. Parking is free except for 10:00 - 12:00 on weekdays.
The room is equipped for creative and play therapy.
I also offer online and over the phone sessions. I prefer to use the platform Zoom that complies with GDPR regulations.
Where to start
I offer a free initial phone consultation so that we can discuss your needs and create a personalized plan together. Please feel free to send me any inquiries via email, and I will aim to respond within 48 hours.
My first session
For All Clients - The First Session
In our initial session, whether conducted online or in person, we'll engage in a conversation to gain insight into your current circumstances, both emotionally and physically. This discussion allows us to explore your concerns and goals in greater depth. The insights from this assessment will guide our collaborative efforts to address your unique needs. Together, we'll establish a therapeutic plan and a work alliance contract, covering essential aspects such as confidentiality, safety, data protection, and other important considerations.
For Parents - Initial Consultation
In the initial consultation with parents, I aim to gain a comprehensive understanding of your child's current situation, including their concerns and therapy goals. Subsequently, working collaboratively with both the child and their parents, we'll define specific objectives and create a tailored treatment plan. Utilising techniques such as play and creative therapy, your child will have the opportunity to explore and express their thoughts and feelings. They'll also develop coping strategies and enhance their understanding of emotions, relationships, and behaviors. This approach is designed to ensure that your child feels heard, understood, and empowered to navigate life's challenges with increased resilience and confidence.
