About me and my therapy practice
Hi I'm Stephen,
I aim to provide a safe, empathic and non-judgemental counselling space where you can feel free to discuss whatever is troubling you. Counselling offers the opportunity to be heard, and it can also help us to see our life from a different perspective and to begin finding ways of integrating difficult feelings and experiences. In doing so, we can live with greater authenticity. I work with an integrative approach which is client centred and adopts different ways of working according to your needs. In this way, the therapeutic relationship becomes more important than any particular theory of counselling.
I have lived and worked in various parts of the world, including Sudan, Egypt and Japan, and worked in different fields, including teaching and nursing . I am interested in our relationship with our own and other cultures, and how we find meaning and a place in the world as an outsider. As part of my integrative approach to counselling, I sometimes work with 'narrative' - the story we tell ourselves about our identity and life experiences. Counselling can help us to make sense of this story; integrating different parts of ourselves and our experiences to gain a sense of wholeness.
I have worked in the NHS counselling service and now work in private practice. I also teach counselling skills on a foundation course at the University of East London.
