About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I’m a qualified and experienced therapist. I work with a broad range of people who may be feeling anxious, upset, low or overwhelmed by negative or frightening feelings, struggling in relationships (family, romantic or other) or maybe just feeling stuck.
Talking openly about how you are feeling is very powerful, it can help to ease and reduce troubling thoughts. Whether your difficulties stem from things happening now, or from past experiences, we can explore these together, helping you to understand yourself and your patterns of behaviour better, and look at finding ways to help you cope better with emotional demands, challenging situations and relationships.
I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, being integrative means that I am client led and can draw on a range of different approaches that can be tailored to each client’s individual needs.
I am a qualified Humanistic Integrative therapist, and registered member of the BACP. I have over 15 years experience supporting people to explore their personal, professional and emotional lives, initially as a coach and mentor and now as a therapist. I am currently offering therapy to clients through the following counselling services: Women and Health, CPPD Low Cost Counselling and CCIWBS, a London based bereavement service.
With a focus on compassion, acceptance and understanding, I aim to offer a safe and caring space where people’s unique lived experiences are respected; somewhere to talk freely and openly. Working at your pace, helping you to reconnect with yourself, your true feelings and aspects of yourself that you perhaps might find hard to accept or understand.
I work with a lot of clients who are experiencing loss, be that a bereavement, the end and loss of a relationship or letting go of long hoped for life plans. I have also supported many clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, emotional distress, relationship issues, they may be experiencing low self esteem and a loss of confidence. We work together to rebuild their emotional strength, confidence and connection to themselves.
Therapy can sometimes be challenging; reconnecting with feelings, experiences or memories we may have been avoiding, or not thought about for a while can be difficult and upsetting. But it can be very rewarding, allowing you to understand yourself better, and begin to live a richer, fuller life.
My first session
The quality of the relationship between the therapist and the person they are working with is often the key to the work being successful, so choosing the right therapist is really important.
To help explore if I might be the right therapist for you, I offer all potential clients a free 20 minute consultation on Zoom or phone) where we can start to get to know each other and see how we feel about working together. This is also a chance for you to begin to share what might be bringing you to therapy.
If, after that session, you feel that you would like to work with me, we will arrange a regular time to meet once a week. In the first session we can talk more abut how we might work together, and what you hope to get out of the process.
