About me and my therapy practice

Counselling and psychotherapy are processes enabled through empathy, a form of deep understanding and sharing of the feelings of the other, positive regard, and non-judgemental listening, all facilitated through the therapeutic relationship. The first step in the process may often be a form of validation, which supports the truth of past experiences as real, valid and meaningful and provides the building blocks of trust and belief in the self. This is where your journey might begin.

I have a Master's degree in Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Greenwich and am an accredited member of the BACP. I have worked for a number of years in a large NHS mental health hospital in south London working with individual clients ranging from the mildly anxious to acutely psychologically unwell. I have both coaching and mentoring experience and offer in-person and online sessions.

Practice description

I work with loss, grief, anxiety, depression, long-term relationship problems, chronic illness and long term disabilities, and new and expectant mothers. I see clients one-to-one over the short, medium or long-term, once a week for 50 minutes. I do not work for two weeks at Christmas and Easter and the whole month of August.

My first session

This session covers the following: reasons for client seeking out therapy, sharing something about their life, confidentiality agreement (includes use of a supervisor), expectations of therapy, personal details of client plus their GP (if they are happy to share) or next of kin, length of treatment (client-led and open-ended), cancellation procedures, holiday arrangements and fee.
