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. 

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, 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 tailored to 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 circumstances relating to the pandemic, I currently provide sessions online (via Zoom or WhatsApp). Online therapy is different to in person therapy but is still considered highly effective nonetheless. We can discuss any challenges this may pose in your initial consultation (details below).

Once the pandemic has lifted and you feel comfortable to do so, I offer opportunities for face-to-face counselling & psychotherapy sessions in London Bridge. This central London venue is clean and comfortable, and within walking distance from the tube/train stations.

My first session

I offer all prospective clients the opportunity to have a free 15 minute telephone consultation to see how I may be of service to you. Then depending on our availability we can then discuss booking in an initial 50 minute session.

The initial 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 also will send you illustrative examples of my Client Agreement, my Privacy Statement, as well as my Online Therapy Guidelines. Any questions arising from these documents can be discussed during the first session.

What I can help with

Abuse, AIDS/HIV, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Health related issues, Identity issues, Loss, Men's issues, Personal development, Redundancy, Relationships, Sex-related issues, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Stress, Trauma, Work related issues

Types of therapy

Brief therapy, CBT, Gestalt, Integrative, Jungian, Psychodynamic, Psychosynthesis, Relational, Transpersonal
