About me and my therapy practice

My approach

​I offer counselling face to face, over the phone or online to young adults, adults, and professionals. 

Clients come to me experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, high workloads, client demands, relationship problems, problems seeking support, perfectionism, critical thoughts, addiction, not being able to set boundaries, feeling stuck, low self-esteem, and trauma.

​We will talk about whatever you wish to bring at your own pace and in your own time, the emphasis is on you and what you are experiencing. I will provide an empathic ear, I will listen to you and we will begin to build a working relationship together that helps you think and understand yourself better. ​

My style of counselling is psychodynamic: this might involve exploring past history and patterns of relating, as I feel that our childhood experiences affect our current experiences, and expectations of relationships and situations in ways that we are not fully aware of. 

I offer a highly confidential space, that is private and peaceful, and where my clients can feel supported and gain new perspective on what's really going on for them.

​I work collaboratively and engage with my clients; listening carefully, enquiring, and thinking. Working together, insight is gained into a client's unique situation, where greater awareness and support may bring about changes for the client that feel real and lasting.

​I am empathic, calm and insightful.

​Please feel free to contact me for more information or about an initial consultation.

​I look forward to meeting you.  



Practice description

About Me

I am an experienced and qualified counsellor, registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) offering counselling to young adults, adults and professionals.

I offer this from my private practice just a few minutes walk from London Bridge Station or in central Tunbridge Wells.

I also offer counselling online and over the phone.

​I have experience of offering counselling to clients from all walks of life and with a wide range of issues.

​I have also worked in the city as a lawyer for some of the most well known law firms and financial institutions, I am uniquely placed to offer counselling to professionals, having lived and breathed the life of a city lawyer with all its stresses and demands.

My emphasis is on finding ways to assist clients to feel more genuinely empowered and themselves, in spite of the outwardly successful image they might project. One that from the outside seems perfect but might come at a high inward personal cost.

This tends towards exploring with and assisting clients to feel more at ease on the inside: replacing perfectionistic or blocked types of thinking or feeling with ones that might feel kinder and good enough. I am open and non-judgemental in my approach.

 

My first session

In our first consultation we will discuss what has led you to seek counselling and I will start to get to you know. I generally invite clients to think about whether they would like to work with me over the first couple of consultations, as I would do too.

We would then agree a fixed time to meet on a weekly basis if you'd like to work together that you can commit to on a regular basis. As the counselling space is held for you regularly any missed or cancelled sessions would still need to be paid for. 

Typically I would suggest ideally to have at least a minimum of six sessions so that you feel you are getting some benefit.

Although work is open-ended you are free to end counselling when you wish, though I would encourage you to discuss with me any difficulties that might be arising for you before you do so. Ideally I would ask for some notice so we can work towards the experience of a 'good ending' of the counselling for you together.

I work in a peaceful and private therapy room just a few minutes walk from London Bridge Station, charging £80 for a 50 minute initial consultation/session. Alternatively I can offer therapy in central Tunbridge Wells at £50 for a 50 minute initial consultation/session.
