About me and my therapy practice
I am a native Londoner and I love this city with its diverse mix of people. However, cities can be stressful and I equally need the healing properties of nature, whether it be in the parks of south east London or the varied countryside of the UK.
I have lived/worked in different parts of the UK and worked extensively abroad which has given me a deep interest and appreciation of other cultures and ways of living. Being a psychotherapist is a third career for me after working in theatre and performance, and a subsequent career as a teacher and lecturer of the performing arts.
Many people feel 'stuck' and unable to move forward. I can help you unpick the reasons for this paralysis and find a way through your difficulties.
I trained at The Minster Centre and CPPD Counselling School from which I have an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.
As an integrative therapist, I am able to use different therapeutic approaches to suit each client rather than just following one approach with everyone.
I utilise a number of therapy approaches, therefore, to create a warm, supportive environment in which clients feel safe. They are then able to work through issues and feelings that they are experiencing, and face up to challenges in their lives.
Recent research into the effectiveness of different therapeutic approaches stresses the importance of the relationship between client and therapist. In our relationship, I will give you focused attention to help and challenge you.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow the Ethical Framework of the BACP that protects both clients and therapists. I am also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
I offer in person sessions at a variety of South East London locations.
Psychotherapy sessions usually take place weekly and last for 50 minutes.
I also offer online sessions via Zoom if you are more comfortable with meeting online.
Sessions cost £60 for both in person and on line. Concessionary rates available.
My first session
An initial assessment session gives you the opportunity to see whether we will be a good fit for each other and gives you the chance to ask any questions you may have about the sessions or psychotherapy and counselling in general. You may have a particular issue you wish to deal with over a shorter length of time, or a number of issues that require longer term work.
