About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative humanistic and psychodynamic counsellor with experience working in private practise, the NHS and the voluntary sector. I offer both long and short term talking therapy and also the option to combine talking therapy with Somatic body work for an integrated MindBody approach for the the treatment of everything from Trauma to a need for integration in the Self.
Across a life time we encounter many transitions and events that shake the sense of ourselves and our relationships that we had up to that point. This fracturing of the parts of ‘us’, can feel enormously destabilising and lead to relationship problems and the manifestation of physical illness, mental health problems, addictive behaviours and a general sense of dissociation, dis-ease and low functioning. When you reach that point it can be very helpful to have a safe place to talk and be heard.
Wherever you are on the spectrum of the effects, whether they are new or entrenched, holistic psychotherapy & Somatic therapy can help integrate the parts of yourself, and your life, that may have become fragmented.
Over time therapeutic intervention will leave you not only feeling whole again, but fully able to inhabit a revised sense of your self-concept, your body and the moment, for maximum enjoyment and potential in life.
My psychotherapeutic work is fundamentally relational, but my grounding principles are founded in understanding each client from an holistic biopsychosocial perspective, to address all the elements of our experience of ourselves in relationship to others and the world around us.
From this base, I work with you to make conscious understanding of how your developmental and life experiences are affecting your mind, body, relationships, emotions and functioning in the present.
I work in a quiet, comfortable practise a five minute walk from Clapham Junction station. The area is well served by both buses and trains.
My first session
We will arrange to have an introductory phone call so that you can gauge whether you would like to try a session with me.
In our first session we will go deeper in to your presenting issue, hopes and expectations and get a sense of how it might feel to work with me.
After that you can decide whether to commit to long or short term work.
