Availability

I am able to offer online and face-to-face therapy on weekdays. 

This address is my new office and will be available from the beginning of July 2021 - until that time I can offer in-person sessions in Fulham.

About me and my therapy practice

Therapy is for everyone, and I will speak to adults from all sections of the community (LGBTQ+, male, female) who feel that they need to be heard and want to express something about themselves, in order to feel better.

I work Integratively; using methods and theories from various schools of thought (primarily existential philosophy, psychodynamic and person-centred thinking) to find a way of working which can show you how to find your unique path away from the bad feelings you may be experiencing.

We will think about your life and the ways that you have learnt how to behave and react to your reality, in order to see what can change, as well as reinforce the strengths you already have to be able to make those changes.

Therapy can help with problems including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, work stress, relationship problems, addictions, childhood trauma/abuse.

I have particular experience and interest in the following areas: Anxiety, bereavment, chronic illness/disability

Practice description

Unfortunately, my practice is not wheelchair accessible, but I am able to offer online sessions, using Zoom, for those who have difficulty in using stairs.


COVID

- I have had both doses of the vaccine and will take regular tests to minimise any risk of transmission.

- All chairs in the therapy room will be sanitised between sessions

- Hand sanitiser is available in the room. 

My first session

Our first session together will involve some questions about you and your personal and family history, the answers to which will give me better context around the rest of what you tell me going further into therapy.

I want you to be able to tell me what you want to tell me, so I will endeavour to give you the space you need to express yourself.  If this "assessment" period goes on for longer than 1 session, then that is what is needed: It is better to start slowly and make sure that therapy is right for you, than to rush the process.

You may be new to therapy, so getting used to a new way of interacting with someone you don't know might be difficult, uncomfortable, or simply unfamiliar, but I hope that we can build a rapport which allows you to feel confident in sharing your feelings with me.
