Thank you for visiting my website. I am a qualified and accredited Integrative Counsellor & Supervisor here in London. I see clients in private practice and in organisations, providing one to one counselling as well as, one to one and group supervision. I offer short term focused therapy and long term focused therapy.

 

Being an integrative counsellor means that I am able to draw on knowledge and skills from various counselling approaches based on your individual circumstances in order to provide the most effective and personalised therapy for your needs.

Because the counselling sessions are for you I maintain an open minded, non-judgemental,  respectful and collaborative approach. The main aim is that you do not have to face your difficulties alone. I use my training and skills to work with you at the pace, and depth  that is appropriate for you to work through the challenges you are experiencing in order to feel more empowered within yourself and your life.

My work is underpinned with the belief and experience that we all have the capacity to be in control of ourselves and our choices. I work with you to understand what is really affecting you in the here and now, and importantly we can look at how you can take back control and move forward.

I have worked successfully with a diverse group of clients from many cultural and socioeconomic background with a wide variety of issues.

Our first meeting gives us an opportunity to learn more about you, your experiences, the specific difficulties you are facing and how they are currently affecting you. Because we are all unique individuals, the idea is to get an understanding of you as a whole person and not to define you by said difficulties.

 

The aim will be to understand together what is most important for you and what you want to focus on e.g. what are the source(s) of your difficulties? What is the impact and cost to you? And what do you want to be different?

 

We will collaboratively look at how you want to work together, your expectations and your preferences. It is also an opportunity to decide together what are the next steps you would like to take regarding counselling.

I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their ethics and standards for good practice.​

 

Talking about our difficulties even with a professional can feel daunting. That is why it is important that you feel comfortable and safe enough with the therapist you chose, so you can get the most out of the experience.

 

If you would like to discuss what you are looking for and to find out if counselling is the right thing for you, you can contact me for a free 15 minute telephone consultation.
 

I practice close to Canary Wharf Station and very close between Victoria and Pimlico Station. Both locations are easily accessible by public transport.
