About me and my therapy practice
*I am seeing clients online using Zoom, or via phone sessions, and have some face to face availability in therapy rooms in SE15. Please contact me to discuss what would suit you best.*
Sometimes we can feel as though we are never fully seen or heard. Therapy can offer a chance to change that.
You may be exploring therapy because of a specific long-term problem, a crisis, or a more general sense of wanting to understand yourself, and grow. I am here to see you as the individual you are, to listen to you without judgment, and to support you as you work through challenges past and present.
Why speak to anyone? We speak in order to be understood. It can be very powerful to feel acceptance and empathy from someone who has no vested interest in your interpretation of your life, and any decisions you make.
We are all influenced heavily – but not irreparably – by our past. I recognise inequality and oppression make change challenging, but believe that in the right circumstances, it is possible for everyone. I offer a confidential space, in which I support you to untangle what you are feeling – whether around past events or current difficulties.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor, and I am a registered BACP member. I have experience of both short and long term work, across a wide range of issues, ages and backgrounds. I have worked in a variety of settings, with adults and young people. Aside from my private practice, I am a counsellor with a charity which supports parents whose children have been abused.
I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to bring about change and growth, to provide grounding in a crisis and to help understand and manage the painful emotions you may be feeling.
My first session
Contact me for an initial conversation about how we might work together. If we agree to go ahead with a first session, I will send you a contract covering issues such as confidentiality to review and sign, along with my privacy notice detailing how I manage your personal data. We would use the time and space in our first session to explore your history, what brings you to therapy, and the professional boundaries around the therapy.
You may decide you want to commit to a limited number of sessions, or you may prefer a more open-ended approach: either is possible, and I will be led by your needs. Either way, we will regularly review our work to check how you are finding the experience.
