About

Counselling - a time set aside for you to talk in a confidential setting about what's distressing you. A safe space where you're accepted, held, listened to and not judged. I will support you to gain insights and strategies for a better way forward. Whether it is for anxiety, depression, panic attacks, OCD, low self-esteem, bereavement, relationships or cross-cultural issues. I am an experienced BACP-accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist using an integrative approach, drawing on various models to best serve the unique person you are.
Having lived in Asia & Europe, I relate easily to ethnically diverse clients. My specialty - overcoming setback/loss (e.g. a relationship, bereavement, career, health..) To be more self-compassionate and let go of negative emotions; to discover and live again from the values you hold dear. I offer both Individual and Couples Counselling.
It takes courage to seek help from a stranger, especially if you've never had counselling before. My free 20 minute phone / online initial consultation allows us to get to know each other a little, understand what brings you to counselling, and decide if we can work together. Absolutely without obligation - you're free to try another counsellor if desired.
