You might experience a time where you feel stuck, face a challenging period, struggle to cope or you might just want to understand yourself better. You might not know where to turn to. Talking to a non-judgemental and warm counsellor in a confidential environment may help you live life in a more fulfilling and resourceful way. In counselling with me you can explore your experiences and feelings, which may be troubling and distressing you. I am aiming to create a safe, respectful and supportive relationship, where you get the time to heal and grow, restore connections in your life and have an opportunity to nurture yourself.
I am a Humanistic Counsellor, in my approach I use Person-Centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis.
I recognise that people come to therapy for a variety of different reasons and want different things. My approach has a holistic outlook in understanding the unique experiences and lives of my clients, their relationship with oneself, others and the world around them.
The way I work therapeutically values your uniqueness and I believe that you have the potential within you to make the changes you desire. I will support you in your process and when you feel most vulnerable, by providing a supportive and trusting space and relationship, where you can feel free to express yourself. You can feel understood and reflect on your experiences without judgement.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling from Metanoia Institute in London, a BSc (Hons) in Reflective Therapeutic Practice awarded by Middlesex University in London. Before then, I completed an Introduction to Counselling Course from Ewert House, Oxford University. I also have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and Sociology from Oxford Brookes University in Oxford.
I have previously seen clients at Oxford Counselling Centre in Oxford and at Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service (MCPS) in Ealing, London and worked in private practice in North London.
