About me and my therapy practice
Can therapy help?
Perhaps you are experiencing anxiety or depression, or you may have gone through a life event that has set you adrift. I believe that loss is central to many of our issues. It can be loss in the most extreme way through bereavement but it may also be loss in a more general way : the loss of our identity or purpose. I help my clients to adjust to change - indeed to see change as inevitable and to embrace the growth opportunities it presents. Clients regularly tell me that after counselling they live with greater authenticity, taking full ownership of their actions and greater confidence in their choices.
I am fully qualified as an integrative psychotherapist. I listen without judgement and believe that every person has the ability to grow. In addition to seeing clients privately, I have been working at a large GP practice in SW London for a number of years, seeing clients referred to me by their GP for a variety of issues. I have also worked at an Academy school as a sixth form counsellor which has given me experience of working with young adults in this transitional stage of their life. I have a particular interest in helping young adults to develop coping mechanisms to deal with the pressures of school, university and working life. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist I worked in the business world of corporate public relations which helped me understand the wish for a focused solution driven approach.
