About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, currently also working for the NHS as a psychodynamic counsellor- a talking therapy. I always keep in mind how difficult it can be to take the first step to see a counsellor, and I offer a supportive environment, with this in mind. I have experience of working with a variety of issues, especially anxiety and depression, and offer a way of working that is specific to each individual. I use some CBT techniques, where appropriate. 

I work with clients both short term and long term. I also have experience of working over the telephone. I can offer to speak on the telephone initially (no fee), as a first contact. 

I work confidentially and in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. I am a registered member of the BACP and completed a course accredited by the BACP (MHCPC). I have full insurance.

My background is in the Arts and I have also worked in a corporate environment. I have a degree in English Literature (BA Hons).

Abuse, Addictions, Anger management, Anxiety, Cancer, Child related issues, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Cultural issues, Depression, Disability, Eating disorders, Health related issues, Identity issues, Infertility, Men's issues, Obsessions, OCD, Personal development, Phobias, Post-traumatic stress, Pregnancy related issues, Relationships, Self esteem, Self-harm, Sex-related issues, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Stress, Trauma, Women's issues, Work related issues

About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor of many years, until recently also working for the NHS as a psychodynamic counsellor- a talking therapy. I always keep in mind how difficult it can be to take the first step to see a counsellor, and I offer a supportive environment, with this in mind. I have experience of working with a variety of issues, especially anxiety and depression, and offer a way of working that is specific to each individual.  I use some CBT techniques, where appropriate. Recently, a BACP article identified that people often want therapy that promotes change and is supportive, but not passive, and I certainly feel that this is this the kind of therapy I offer.

I work with clients both short term and long term, I also have experience of working over the telephone. I offer speaking on the telephone initially (no fee), as a first contact. Some  sessions are by telephone or videocall, (these are £50), but I am now seeing clients face to face.

I work confidentially and in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. I am a registered member of the BACP and completed a course accredited by the BACP (MHCPC). I have full insurance. 

My background is in the Arts and I have also worked in a corporate environment. I have a degree in English Literature (BA Hons).

Practice description

I use two different rooms, one in East London, one in Essex.

I am now working face to face, in addition to phone or videocall, both with existing clients & new clients. These sessions are less in terms of cost when contacted directly (£50). [Forest Therapy clients are £60]

I always offer a free telephone call as a first point of contact, with the opportunity to chat fully about why counselling is being sought.

What I can help with

Abuse, Addictions, Anger management, Anxiety, Cancer, Child related issues, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Cultural issues, Depression, Disability, Eating disorders, Health related issues, Identity issues, Infertility, Men's issues, Obsessions, OCD, Personal development, Phobias, Post-traumatic stress, Pregnancy related issues, Relationships, Self esteem, Self-harm, Sex-related issues, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Stress, Trauma, Women's issues, Work related issues
