What I do - Counselling in Central London

I am an integrative counsellor and supervisor working with individuals and couples. My humanistic approach is rooted in the person centred model. With integrative counselling I weave through different modalities to meet client need at the time. In my work I provide a safe confidential non-judgemental space to promote self growth. I value empowerment and recognise each individual capacity to heal and determine their own lives. The aim of my work as a counsellor is to help people rediscover who they are as people value their personal strengths to reach fulfilment

What Counselling Can Help With

  • Find a way to move through struggles present in your life
  • Gain awareness of your own strength and resilience
  • Looking at life's difficulties from a different perspective
  • Be more compassionate towards yourself and your feelings
  • Explore who you are and your goals in life
  • Discover choices present to you and the inner strength to make changes

    My therapeutic approach can help with historic or recent traumatic experiences, problematic relationships, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, loss and bereavement, health problems, IVF difficulties, substance struggles, gender and cultural issues.

    My work with trauma does involve revisiting past difficult situations at times. Being reminded of painful memories can initially increase fear temporarily while at the same time opening the way towards personal growth and change. Here the opportunity to move from a life of fear and pain into a life of peace and personal fulfilment is the goal. When held back by a painful past leads to low self-esteem reinforcing negative self perceptions. This is a situation I often encounter as a counsellor I welcome challenges involved. My resolve when I work remains to facilitate personal freedom moving away from emotional pain anxiety and depression.

  • Have better relationships find relief from painful behaviour patterns
  • Gain awareness of themselves and their relationships

Areas of Specialism:

Encountering problems when trying to relate to self- identity defining your place within family setting or wider society can often be an issue. Difficulties related to racial sexual identity or family dynamics present at such times. You may have concerns involving how other people may perceive you or struggling with finding a sense of self expression that reflects the true person you are.
