Counselling in South London
Counselling and how it might help:
Individuals and Couples
To help you work out what is right for you I offer a free assessment which you can arrange by contacting me directly. This gives you a chance to make sure you get the right counsellor for you that you feel comfortable working with. It is important to be able to trust your therapist and working with you to develop a good alliance will be paramount for me as your counsellor.
Do you suffer from anxiety? Feel depressed or struggle with unwanted emotions? I have helped a lot of people struggling with life and its many pressures and demands. I could also help you find a way forward with what may feel like impossible problems. I have worked with clients mainly in a general service, encountering all sorts of problems and working all kinds of developmental needs. As well as an array of experience in different settings I have also developed a very open, positive and non-judgemental approach that I think will make your experience of counselling a good one.
I have also practised in an addictions setting and a bereavement service. I currently work in a general counselling service, teach on a counselling training course at both foundation and diploma level and also work in private practice (situated in Herne Hill, near Camberwell, Brixton and East Dulwich).
As human beings we are essentially relational and the exploration of relationships in a person's life is the focus of the work I do. This can be troubling, fascinating, helpful, illuminating and deeply profound or all of these at different times. It is not an easy commitment but then nothing worthwhile ever really is and though counselling and therapy can be all of those things fundamentally it is here to help you overcome your problems and develop a more robust and rewarding sense of well-being.
The most important thing is the development of a therapeutic relationship that aids you the client to develop, heal and grow. I work from your expressed wishes with you to find the best way forward for you. I hope that we may soon work together.
I have worked with a broad range of issues and needs and am confident of being able to help you, please get in touch for a free assessment to see if we could work together.
