About me and my therapy practice

Are you finding life hard as a result of the pandemic? Perhaps feeling isolated, lonely or overwhelmed by relationships, family or friendship difficulties? Maybe you find yourself seeking comfort in food, alcohol or drugs? Or, you find yourself excessively working, online shopping or using social media, etc? Do any of these things sound familiar? If so, and you are new to counselling or psychotherapy, I know how nervous you are probably feeling. Taking such a step can be challenging, so I am here to support you. 

I have been offering online counselling for several years and am currently available online for new clients in lock-down.

So depending on your hopes and needs, we can work together over a brief period or for however long you require.

Whatever your focus, therapy can help you:

  • Feel less anxious and less stressed
  • Cultivate better personal and work life relationships
  • Improve your confidence and assertiveness...

.... and in turn, help you to feel happier within yourself.

I am a trained Psychosynthesis practitioner (holding a Masters level equivalent Post Graduate Diploma). Psychosynthesis is a style of counselling and psychotherapy; utilising a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques depending on your needs.

Whatever difficulties you are experiencing, I will be there to walk alongside you.

Whilst respecting your identity, your background, your past, your present situation and future aspirations, I will help you to find choice where there appears to be none.

Practice description

Given the current pandemic lock-down, I provide sessions online via Zoom. Further details are available upon request.

Once the pandemic lock-down has been lifted, I offer opportunities for face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy sessions in central London; London Bridge & Oxford Circus. Both central London venues are warm, comfortable surroundings and are within walking distance from tube stations.

My first session

Our first session is an opportunity to see how we can work together, explore your expectations and desired outcomes from therapy, and for you to ask any questions you may have regarding the process. Offering you a safe space to be seen and heard is my top priority.

Prior to the first session, I will send you illustrative examples of my Client Agreement, my Privacy Statement, as well as my Online Therapy Guidelines (if relevant). Any questions arising from these documents can be discussed either prior to or during the first session.
