About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist based in South Woodford, East London. I provide a warm, empathic and confidential space in which my clients feel safe and supported. I seek to build strong and trusting bonds with my clients so that together we can explore the difficult thoughts and feelings that are impacting on their wellbeing and happiness.
I work as an integrative therapist adapting the way I work to the particular needs of my clients. I am influenced in this by Carl Jung who said, " learn your theories as well as you can, but put them aside when you touch the miracle of the living soul," Jung (1928). I have an extensive understanding of theories gained over 6 years of study which provide me with a solid base of knowledge to draw on when reflecting on my work with clients and reviewing our progress, however when we are together I like to work instinctively and intuitively , responding to my client brings and to their uniqueness and individuality.
In addition to my private practice I also currently work for the North East London NHS Trust and the charity MIND where I manage a large team of volunteer counsellors. I have experience in helping people with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, sexual abuse, relationship difficulties, workplace difficulties and bullying. I have also done a great deal of work with people in a transitional stage of life and people who may be struggling with questions of identity, self-esteem or in finding direction and purpose in life.
I am based in, South Woodford, East London where I meet clients in person for 50 minute sessions . I am also fully trained in working online having received training from the Open University provided by the NHS in response to Coronavirus and am happy to provide online or telephone sessions if preferred. My website contains details of the Covid safety arrangements I have put in place to ensure the protection of clients who prefer to see me in person .
