About me and my therapy practice

Choosing a counsellor is a big step which can feel daunting. How do you select the therapist who will be right for you? For this reason I offer an initial session without commitment. Empathy and compassion are the essence of the way I work and I will offer you a safe, supportive, non-judgemental, confidential space where you will feel heard, accepted, respected and valued. For many people this is a new experience which in itself allows for greater self understanding. My theoretical approach is Integrative, drawing on the Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) approaches within a relational working model which emphasises the Humanistic philosophy and embraces Person Centred core processes. If you are new to counselling you may be confused by the different theoretical approaches and find it difficult to decide what would be right for you. Current research shows that more important than the theory is the therapeutic relationship (the relationship between you and me) and this is the cornerstone of my work. My consulting room is tranquil, light and airy, in a quiet house surrounded by trees and garden, in a small residential street in Putney, SW15 (easily accessible from Roehampton; Wandsworth; Fulham; Southfields; Wimbledon; Barnes; Richmond; Clapham and Kingston).
