I offer a warm, compassionate and grounded approach. My background and training enables me to draw on a variety of approaches and to use tools that will best support clients. I am passionate about supporting people to have a space where they can feel they are really listened to, where they can come into better understanding of themselves and learn to experience more peace in their lives - and thrive.
I offer a free 15 minute consultation which can take place via telephone or zoom. This gives an opportunity to ask any questions about how I work and to let me know what you are experiencing. There can often be a misconception about therapy; that you have to be in crisis to reach out (which obviously some people are). Accessing therapy can be about exploring any present issues, what has shaped you and where you might like to see yourself going forward. Either way, your first session allows us to share some ideas on how best to support you wherever you're at. I offer short and open ended therapy and encourage clients to go with the flow, if they are in a position to.
As mentioned, I draw on a multitude of approaches. My previous complementary therapy work also informs my practice, for example I have trained in Hypnotherapy and body work. Therefore, we might access tools (where appropriate) which go beyond traditional talk therapy.
Compassionate and highly experienced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I am currently working in private practice offering face to face* (depending on location) and online sessions. To date, I have worked for generic counselling centres and specialist (LGBTQ) centres in London offering support to a variety of people experiencing a multitude of life challenges.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
