About me and my therapy practice
I'm an Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and so draw on a number of approaches (Existential, Psychodynamic and Humanistic) in order to meet your individual needs. My approach is collaborative and I seek to meet you where you are in your life, without expectation or judgement.
My training enables me to explore your experiences with you, to reflect and help you find new understanding, perspective and emotional resources with which to meet the challenges you face. I work with experiences of anxiety, loss and bereavement, depression, family or relationship difficulties and many others. Whether it is something recent that you are struggling to come to terms with, or something more long standing, I would be happy to hear from you.
Sessions cost £60.
Initial introductory session costs £50
Due to Covid-19, I am currently working with clients via telephone.
Sessions will be held face-to-face from rooms at City Road Therapy, near Angel, Islington, when future circumstances allow.
Qualifications and Experience:
I trained at Regent's University, London, gaining the following qualifications:
MA Psychotherapy and Counselling. (Distinction)
Postgraduate Diploma (Level 7) - Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling.
Certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling
Therapy sessions provide a different kind of emotional and reflective space from that which is found in daily life: it is a space where thoughts and feelings can be explored without judgement or needing to meet the expectations of others. The relationship between therapist and client is significant, being very different from speaking with family or friends, and it forms a dynamic and important element in the therapy itself. I bring a warmth and openness to my work with all clients.
Prior to establishing my Private Practice, my previous experience was as a counsellor in a mental health charity in London, seeing clients both short and long-term about a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties. Before that I was a counsellor for a London bereavement service, working with clients experiencing complex bereavement and traumatic loss.
Before training as a therapist, I taught in higher education.
My first session
The first session gives us an opportunity to experience how we might work together, whether that is via telephone or face-to-face.
I would seek to listen to what is bringing you to therapy and what your hopes are in working with me.
I may ask some questions to gain better understanding of the issues you face but my aim, in this and any future sessions, is to enable a space for dialogue to take place between us.
I would describe the approach I would take to our work together and we will have the opportunity to discuss the process and terms for regular sessions, should that be the path you wish to take.
I would welcome any questions you have and would seek to answer as openly as I can.
