I can help with...
- Bereavement and loss
- Educational performance
- Loneliness and isolation
- Low self-esteem
- Major life changes
- Relationship difficulties
- Work-related issues
Types of client I see
Languages I speak
- Room 2 at Elizabeth House, 39 York Road, London SE1 7NQ
Types of therapy I offer
- Person-centred psychotherapy
- Solution-focussed brief therapy
I facilitate a warm, non-judgemental and personable environment, where people can feel safe and listened to. As part of this process, I also offer my own reflections, when I think they can help – as looking at situations from different perspectives can be life-changing – and because I believe that a sense of self-understanding can be co-created through relating with others.
Our exploration will take place mainly through talking and it will sometimes be helpful to draw upon other things such as: literature, art, storytelling, movies and meditation.
