I am an Accredited MBACP Registered Humanistic Integrative Counsellor & Counselling Supervisor with over 10 years of experience in working with individuals, and groups of all ages, sexual orientations and cultural backgrounds. I am based both at London Liverpool Street EC2 and Colchester CO1. Dependent on your presenting issues/needs I will draw on cognitive, psychodynamic, attachment, and relational theories and concepts, to provide either short-term-focused counselling/therapy or longer-term in-depth psychotherapy.
I offer a confidential, safe and reliable place for you to make sense of your current difficulties, and through the establishment of a trusting therapeutic relationship will help you to explore any past formative experiences and future concerns, which may be impacting on your present-day choices/decisions, and ways you may form and maintain relationships.
If you're ready to embark on a transformative journey towards self-discovery and personal growth, I invite you to take the first step. Together, we can explore your challenges, uncover underlying patterns, and develop strategies to overcome obstacles. Through collaboration we can work towards creating meaningful changes for a more fulfilling life.
