I have an open and down to earth approach and set out to create a warm and safe environment, for you to explore what is troubling you. I offer a confidential, supportive and non-judgmental space.
My approach is integrative which means that I draw on different theoretical approaches and styles depending on your needs. Together we may decide to approach an issue both practically, finding resources you can use, and also more soulfully, looking at the possible causes and where issues may stem from.
I have worked with clients from a wide variety of back grounds and with many different issues, including grief, loss, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, feelings of powerlessness, midlife transition, sexual abuse, OCD and relationship issues.
I offer both short term and also longer open ended work. Throughout our time working together we will review our work; this is to make sure that you are getting as much from our sessions as possible.
Finding the counsellor who is right for you is important. I offer an initial session for £25 this is an opportunity for us to get a feel as to whether we can work together.
I have a passion for psychology, sociology and personal development which started 30 years ago.
Over this time I have had the privilege to be able to explore a number of areas of interest, these include; yoga, meditation, dream work, birth and parenting and women’s health.
I have a degree in Psychosocial Studies and a Counselling diploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such abide by their ethical framework http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/
I have had my own private practice in London and Kent for over 5 years
I regularly undertake various CPD (continuing professional development) courses.
