About me and my therapy practice

At this stage of your life you might feel hopeless and overwhelmed as your current circumstances seems impossible to understand or manage. Some of your feelings, thoughts and behaviour associated with your situation is too difficult to share with anyone and it makes you feel alone or misunderstood. I am a trained Integrative Counsellor with experience in the NHS and Private sector and a registered member of the BACP. As an integrative practitioner my training includes CBT, Person Centred, and Psychodynamic models which can help me to choose from a range of psychological models to fashion the best approach for you. I have also trained as a Spiritual Director with experience of supporting clients on their spiritual journey. The spiritual journey that a person is on, is of great interest to me especially where there is possible spiritual and psychological tensions due to trauma, abuse, social, cultural, political and religious tensions.Of greatest importance is the relationship that we develop together. Establishing of a trusted alliance will be fundamental to the success of our work together. Our time together will allow you the space and opportunity to open up and share your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a warm, non-judgemental and caring environment. Our session together will usually last for 50 minutes.

Practice description

I have lived in London for just over 16 years after moving here from South Africa in 2006. I originally trained as an accountant and worked in the private, commercial and charity sector for almost 20 years.However, my passion has always been to come alongside anyone that feels excluded, unwanted and just tired of how current or historical situations or relational aspects have tried to remove hope from their lives. The endless opportunity, in the UK and back home, to be exposed to different cultures, religious beliefs, and social environments has fed my desire to further explore the impact that change might have on human development.The prospect of working together and discovering a way forward that can help you to overcome unwanted feelings, thoughts and behaviour caused by current relational/circumstances, historical relational/situations, excites me.
