I am a fully qualified gestalt psychotherapist based at the conveniently located reCentre Health Therapy Rooms on Balham High Road, south London. I have a strong commitment to supporting my clients live more fulfilling and satisfying lives. I am registered with both the UKCP and BACP and hold a Master’s degree in Psychotherapy from London Metropolitan University and an advanced practitioner diploma from the Gestalt Centre London.
I offer long-term, open-ended psychotherapy as well as shorter courses of therapy. I have extensive experience working with themes of loss and grief as well as supporting clients through relationship difficulties, major life events and transitions, self-esteem issues, anxiety and depression, as well as the psychological and emotional impact of the COVID19 crisis.
I treat every client as individual, building a trusting and safe relationship which enables clients to become more aware of themselves and develop more self-compassion. I embrace difference and enjoys supporting clients from diverse backgrounds facing a broad range of life challenges.
I adopt a holistic approach, working with the whole person – thoughts, emotions, body sensations, spirituality and creativity. I do not believe in forcing change but rather creating a space where clients can safely increase their awareness and explore different possibilities in their lives. My style is gentle, warm, down-to-earth and intuitive.
Alongside my private practice, I am employed as a senior counsellor in a hospice. Previously I managed a project for Cruse Bereavement Care offering peer support to people bereaved through a loved one’s drug or alcohol use. Before training as a therapist, I was a communications professional working in central government and the charity sector.
I works with adults aged 18 and over and am also a qualified group psychotherapist. My sessions take place weekly.
