About me and my therapy practice

I am a person-centred Counsellor who believes that clients are the experts of themselves. The counselling relationship is a special one and I am consistently privileged to work alongside my clients whilst they explore what is going on for them and / or who they are; and find acceptance, make changes or whatever the objective is. Together, we work towards creating an equal, genuine, honest, open and empathic therapeutic relationship, where problems can be explored safely. I have been trained integratively so have a range of other therapeutic tools available should you request it. I am committed to ongoing learning through courses, CPD days, podcasts and reading. 

Practice description

As a person-centred practitioner I offer a safe private space, where you can bring whatever you choose for discussion. My role is to listen, reflect and facilitate exploration, understanding, acceptance, change and / or growth without judgement. I do not advise but I will offer practical solutions or referrals if needed. My counselling room is in my house but is accessed separately, so please be assured of complete privacy. 

There is free parking and plenty of access to buses and several Central Line underground stations. 

I work with all kinds of lifestyle issues and common mental health problems. I have experience of working with survivors of abuse and domestic violence, including childhood sexual abuse, historic abuse, PTSD, dissociation and all of the problems which come with these traumas. 

I also have extensive experience of career and work stress. I have worked in the world of recruitment for many years as a career counsellor and business owner, and have a wealth of knowledge, empathy and understanding with problems in the work place. I am also a Career Coach, although please note that this is charged at a higher rate. 

I offer weekly or fortnightly sessions and ask for commitment from you which I will match.  

My first session

The first session is charged at a reduced rate, as this is an opportunity for us to explore if we can work together. It is important that clients are able to feel connected with their therapist and feel comfortable and safe in the therapy room, so I invite all clients to have an initial face to face session where possible, to ensure that you are comfortable with me as your therapist.
