Types of therapy I offer
I am an experienced integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor working with adults and young people.
My approach helps me to facilitate an empathic and non-judgmental exploration of the issues that bring you to counselling.
Often clients first come to counselling because they feel like life is getting on top of them and that their usual ways of coping are not working.
It’s not unusual for people to experience a challenging time in their life. Perhaps you are suffering from higher levels of stress and anxiety? Maybe your mood is especially low, or you might be suffering from work-related stress, bereavement or family problems?
Talking things through with a therapist, in a confidential environment, may enable you to focus on how you are feeling. It can help you to explore issues from the past that might be affecting you in the present, and to address behaviours and issues that might be unhelpful.
Most importantly, you are at the centre of this collaborative work.
Training, qualifications and experience
I am trained in integrative psychodynamic and person-centred therapy. I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Integrative Counselling (awarded by CPCAB). I have also done additional training in mindfulness and coaching support for parents and carers.
I have extensive experience working with parents and carers of a loved one with an eating disorder. I co-facilitated and ran the London Carers (Parent & Carer Eating Disorder Support Group) for 3 years. I now work as a peer coach for parents and carers for Beat, the national eating disorders charity.
I also work for Parent Carer Counselling Service (Camden), counselling parents with school-age children.
I worked for 2 years at City Pregnancy Counselling & Psychotherapy, counselling on pregnancy-related issues.
I’m a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) (membership number: 375891).
