About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced, accredited counsellor/psychotherapist. I provide a warm and empathetic space in which you can express your most challenging thoughts and feelings without being judged. I can support you to understand yourself better, challenge unhelpful thought patterns and make healthy changes. As well as working with you on issues affecting you in the present, I will teach you strategies to use in the future.
I offer long and short-term therapy, supporting clients with anxiety, depression, family issues, identity struggles and difficulties with self-worth and self-esteem.
I also specialise in Sex and Relationships therapy, in which I support clients with challenges around relationships, sex and sexuality.
As well as running my private practice, I work for a large London teaching hospital, where I see clients and coordinate a small specialist NHS counselling service.
I trained at Greenwich University to master’s level (MSc); before this, I studied psychology at degree level at the University of Newcastle (BS, hons). I have completed Internal Family Systems training for individuals and couples. I am accredited as an Advanced Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversities Therapist (Pink Therapy).
I work integratively and combine different therapeutic interventions according to the needs of my clients. I will encourage you to explore the impact of early life experiences whilst also examining what is happening in the present.
My first session
I offer assessment sessions at a reduced rate.
In your assessment session I will ask about your current life situation, your background, and what has brought you to therapy. We will work out together exactly what it is you want to get from therapy, and whether you want to work in an open-ended way, or for a specific amount of time. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions that you have about the way I work. You can then take some time to consider if you would like us to continue to work together.
