About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor. This means I’ve undergone training, an MSc in Therapeutic Counselling, in a variety of techniques and approaches to help you, including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, psychoanalysis, and person-centred therapy. As we get to know each other we can see which method is most appropriate for you, or if you would benefit from a combination of approaches.

I have worked in a variety of different organisations in support, pastoral and counselling roles. I have supported clients with postpartum mental health, issues related to immigration or being an ex-pat, addictions, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, and loss.

I think it is fundamental to therapy to build a trusting relationship between us. I tend to work slowly and foster a bond with my clients. Every person has their worldview and I value learning how my client’s experience, perspective, history and relationships impact their understanding of self. I work relationally and create a safe, calm, non-judgmental environment for my clients. 

Practice description

I am currently only seeing clients online via Zoom or by telephone. Once it is safe to do so I will be able to meet in person at an inviting room in Greenwich. I am also undergoing training to offer walking and talking therapy so soon I will have the option to offer to meet at Blackheath or Greenwich Park. 

My first session

When you first contact me I will arrange an initial phone call with you to speak about your reasons for seeking therapy and to talk over what you can expect from your sessions with me. At that point, I can answer any questions you have about my process, how I work, or about therapy in general. If you decide to go ahead we will set a day and time to meet weekly. I am flexible with my availability.
