I am a registered member of BACP and UKCP registered trainee.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy on a short or long-term basis within the London area. I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where you can feel fully met, heard and accepted, and a sensitive, flexible, intelligent response to whatever you choose to bring.
The first consultation is free of charge. This is an opportunity to talk about your needs, to ask questions, and to find out whether you want to proceed. It is important to find the right person to work with, so you may want time to think about it.
Sessions last for one hour and take place weekly. I am available weekdays, daytime and evenings. Fees (see opposite) vary according to time, location and circumstances. Some concessionary places are available.
The way I work can be described as mindfulness-based, integrative, relational. This means that we pay careful attention to feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations, to the 'felt sense' of what is happening in the moment; that an appreciation of this ongoing process draws on a broad spectrum of psychotherapeutic understanding and practice; that there is an underlying trust in, and respect for, your inherent capacity for health and well-being.
I have been practising mindfulness and meditation for over twenty years. I bring a varied background and a range of experience to the work.
