How I can help you
I am a qualified humanistic counsellor and therapist, and offer, short-term and long-term counselling.
As a humanistic counsellor I take a holistic approach in understanding the unique experiences of my clients and their lives, the relationship with oneself, others, and the world around them. I value the uniqueness of every individual and provide a safe, supportive and non-judgemental therapeutic environment. Clients can express themselves freely, can feel understood, reflect on their experiences and recognise their inner resources and strength. I believe with the right support, using empathy and acceptance, there is the potential for positive change, healing and growth to take place.
What to expect
I recognise that people come to therapy for a variety of reasons and want different things. You may be facing a challenging period, struggling to cope, experiencing painful emotions or just want to understand yourself a bit better. Talking to a counsellor and exploring the difficulties you are experiencing in a confidential environment may be a way forward for you. I will support you in finding your own insights, understandings and resolutions to the conflicts and difficulties you are undergoing, building your resilience or overcoming past destructive patterns to live a more fulfilling life in the present.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. I attend regular supervision to support my work.
I have a BSc (Hons) in Reflective Therapeutic Practice awarded by Middlesex University in London with a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling from Metanoia Institute, Ealing, London. Previously I completed an Introduction to Counselling Course from Ewert House, Oxford University. I further have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and Sociology from Oxford Brookes University in Oxford.
As a humanistic counsellor I am trained in Person-Centred counselling, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt therapy, and apply all three approaches in my work.
