Whether you have had previous experience of counselling or are thinking about it for the first time, I know that taking that first step can be a daunting experience. The relationship between you and your counsellor is paramount, so it’s vital that you choose one with whom you feel comfortable.
I am passionate about supporting my clients, both in their present circumstances and, where possible, in seeking to achieve the best possible outcomes for their futures, by offering a safe, supportive, non-judgemental and empathic counselling service.
I believe that being supported in exploring your difficulties can help you to make a positive difference to your emotional well-being as well as improving your chances of fulfilling your potential.
I am trained in Person-centred and Psychodynamic orientations and am able to incorporate CBT skills and Motivational Enhancement Therapy. I combine these, working intuitively and creatively, tailored to your individual needs. This might involve exploring your current difficulties or looking at your past and childhood experiences to discover how they are impacting on the present.
My therapy room is in Hayes, on the borders of Bromley and Croydon boroughs, with ample free parking and excellent public transport links via train, bus and tram, making it easily accessible. I am also able to offer counselling in Croydon.
I am able to offer short-term, focussed therapy sessions as well as longer term counselling, to suit your needs.
