About me and my therapy practice
I specialise in working with Substance Misuse and have over 20 years experience of working with people who experience Alcohol and Drugs difficulties.
I have worked with individuals and couples over the last 20 years in various counselling organisations, Bereavement Counselling, GP surgeries and since 2004, in private practice.I worked as a Counselling Manager at the counselling services of Addiction Support and Care Agency (ASCA) where I supervised and trained volunteer counsellors. I also worked as Deputy Chief Executive at a local charity MIND in Kingston where I managed a counselling service for local residents. Between 2010 -2014 I facilitated experiential groups on counselling courses at NESCOT College.
My approch, in the main, is integrative, which incorporates CBT, Psychodynamic and Person-centre approaches. However, I also work with other approcahes when appropriate.
I work with adult individuals and couples on a weekly basis. I see clients at my counselling room which is situated in Worcester Park, Surrey. I offer online sessions too, using Zoom or Skype.
Sessions for individuals last 50 minutes and for couples 75 minutes.
