I am a confident, attuned practitioner with 6 years’ experience in working with clients seeking a range of support.
I am particularly interested in working with addictive tendencies, depression, disassociation, loss, intimacy, relationship problems and shame. As a member of the LGTB+ community I like to support clients who are coming out as gay, lesbian or bi, (to include pan and queer) and issues that can arise around that including loneliness, difficulty connecting with others, not being our true selves or a fragile sense of self, or a sense of something feeling not quite right.
I work with both individuals and couples offering using a person-centred model with further training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples. My interest also expands towards kundalini yoga, the breath, and also looking holistically at the body and listening to where it holds tension and blockages.
After my involvement in the field of design I undertook a BACP accredited PostGraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy with Middlesex University and placements at the NHS, and Caris Bereavement Centre – a leading provider of bereavement and grief support in Islington. This was followed by further training to work with couples using Emotionally Focused Therapy with a grounding in Bowlby’s attachment theory.
Following my previous career in graphic design and photography I studied an MA in photography at the London College of Communication. I use my love and understanding of photography and art to inform my own practise, participating in photography and trauma creative workshops with a group of artists regularly.
If you would like to phone or email me we can arrange an initial conversation at no cost to give you space to reflect on current issues, consider how you might go forward, and for us to meet each other. After our first meeting we can decide on further sessions, or you might like to go away and think about this experience before coming to a decision.
Having decided on a course of counselling, sessions are usually arranged at weekly intervals and last for 50 minutes and cost £60.
