About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified, registered, and accredited person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist working in Tooting Broadway, Southwest London, United Kingdom (Tooting SW17).
I offer a safe, accepting, understanding, and non-judgemental space to help explore what is going on for you at your own pace. Choosing the right professional to help you is important. In order to help you make a decision, I offer an opportunity to speak by phone, online, or in-person to introduce myself and to answer any questions you may have. My contact information can be found below.
My approach to counselling is the person-centred approach which belongs to the humanistic school of therapy and was founded by Carl Rogers, an American psychologist, in the 1950s. Having a genuine, understanding, empathic, and supportive person to speak with about issues that are troubling you can lead to improvements in self-growth, understanding, acceptance and overall greater awareness and flow within yourself. I view you as the expert and will work alongside you to facilitate your explorative journey in a respectful, loving, and non-directive manner. I believe in and I have experience of this way of working providing opportunity and space for real inner change and for the emergence of a more self-loving, self-confident, self-trusting, and self-aware way of being.
As an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I abide by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
I offer individual therapy and couples therapy and have experience of working with people from a wide range of backgrounds across a range of issues. I have experience of working with:
