Areas of practice
Contact me for Online and Telephone Counselling SessionsHi, I am a counsellor with over 17 years post qualification experience. I provide a private and confidential counselling service to individuals and to couples in the Greenwich and surrounding South East London area. I work with a diverse range of people from a wide range of backgrounds and identities.
There are a wide range of reasons why people may decide to seek counselling, that is individual to each person. There may be issues or traumas in the past that are in some way effecting you now or there may be present day issues that are having an impact upon your life. You may be seeking counselling for bereavement, anger issues, depression, anxiety, abuse or relationship issues.
Whatever the reason, it can be helpful to have a counsellor to talk with that is not going to judge, analyse or tell you what to do. My aim as a counsellor is to create a safe space to explore, to help you to a deeper understanding of yourself and assist you in finding your way forward.
As well as my private work I am a Senior Counsellor at Rape Crisis.
I have several years experience providing counselling to women in a domestic violence project.
I worked in an agency for several years providing counselling for young people aged 13-25.
I also have experience as a counsellor working with young people in a secondary school setting.
Further infoMy aim in working with you is to create an environment in which you feel safe enough to explore your concerns. Therefore, I don't tell you what to do, nor do I analyse you, or lead the therapy in a certain direction. My expertise lies in being genuine in my relationship with you and facilitating you in expressing your thoughts, feelings and experiences without judgment. In empathising with how you feel and experience things, and in communicating that to you, you can gain further insight and deepen your understanding of your self and the issues troubling you.
