In practice as a therapist for more than a decade, I specialise in counselling and psychotherapy to support individuals experiencing workplace stress, relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression and low self esteem.
- Are you easily overwhelmed and lacking in confidence?
- Feel you can't 'be yourself' in relationships?
- Wish you could 'move on' and get your life back on track?
I can help you discover a path to a new way forward in your life. I will support you to explore the thoughts, feelings and judgements that you are experiencing, to discover those that feel authentic and those that are keeping you feeling stuck and powerless. As the therapeutic relationship unfolds you will gradually come to a more peaceful relationship with yourself - a more calm and accepting appreciation of who you are, how you got here and what you wish for.
The therapy I offer is called the person centred approach. This is a non-directive type of counselling and psychotherapy which works to help you find your own best answer to your situation. This can really benefit you if you feel stuck or are having difficulty trusting your own judgement. Former clients have reported feeling calmer and more confident in both work and relationships.
WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
1. Contact me today for a brief discussion about your needs, using the phone or email address below.
2. Book a face-to-face initial consultation appointment lasting 50 minutes, to discover if my way of working could be helpful or meaningful for you.
All consultations are strictly confidential and take place in peaceful, comfortable surroundings. Choose from my consulting rooms in West Norwood (close to Streatham, Dulwich and Clapham) or London Bridge (close to the city, Waterloo and Canary Wharf). Please note spaces at London Bridge are limited.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You don’t have to do anything special to prepare for the session - just bring yourself. Your thoughts, feelings, hopes and fears are important to me. Nothing is expected of you and you will not be judged or diagnosed but you will be heard and I will pay attention to the way you see and feel about things.
As a person centred therapist, I relate to you in a real and present way, with my mind and embodied feelings. It's the quality of this relationship that can help you find your own best answer to what you're looking for.
Clients I have worked with have reported feeling more able to:
- Express themselves freely
- Resolve dilemmas
- Feel more calm
- Identify creative solutions
- Feel more ‘playful‘
