I value the unique individual qualities which you already hold. I firmly believe everyone has the capacity to think, and therefore take responsibility for their life. My style is to work with you collaboratively, empathetically listening to your story, without judgement. I provide a confidential, safe space centred around you.
We’ll explore any difficulties that you might be facing, inspiring you to find your own answers to possibly deeply buried stressful or emotional feelings, thoughts and beliefs.
I trained in Humanistic Integrative counselling. I consider all human beings are worthy of respect, acknowledging they have within them an in-built desire to achieve their full potential, with a tendency towards growth and positive change.
The beauty of Integrative Therapy is its versatility. I have the freedom to flow seamlessly from one approach to another, as no one approach is necessarily flexible enough to be helpful to all. I have blended the most potent ingredients from Gestalt Therapy, Person Centred Therapy, Transactional Analysis and the Egan Three Stage Model. This gives me the scope to tailor and adapt each session to your unique needs and individual circumstances. I also incorporate mindfulness, meditation and experiential approaches into my practice.
I have worked in several drug and alcohol recovery units in South London, taking additional training in volatile substance misuse, while working with clients in non-residential medically assisted recovery and harm reduction programs. I also volunteer in a hospice working with pre-bereavement (anticipatory grief) and bereaved clients.
I have a broad depth of working with clients experiencing anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, substance misuse, domestic violence, sexual and psychological abuse, PTSD, panic attacks, depression, flashbacks, loss of children from miscarry, abortion and social service and criminal justice Interventions.
“We are all born with the potential for growth and a capacity to embrace change.”
