My Counselling Practice
I’m a Psychodynamic Counsellor and I have in-depth experience of working with adults who have experienced bereavement, depression, anxiety, poor mental health, personality disorders or other complex life difficulties or simply ask the question who am I or what is my life direction?
In my work I aim to meet as wide a group of clients as possible including those who do not speak English as their first language. For the same reason I undertake continuous training in professional development.
I am Psychodynamically trained but over the years I have found it helpful to combine the Psychodynamic with the Person Centred approach. My work as a counsellor is to get to know you and to build a good relationship, creating a safe space for you as the client to be able to work together on exploring whatever might concern you and being able to relate to things from a different perspective. Hopefully this will enable us to find the best way forward for you.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I have regular supervision.
Welcome to My Website
and to my Counselling Practice
This may be a first stage on a journey of self-discovery or of relating to different aspects of life in a somewhat different way.
Living in our fast Western World may at times be overwhelming and hectic and from time to time we may all loose a sense of self or our direction and place in life.
Taking the first steps in therapy might bring a new phase and a unique working relationship which can provide us with a type of support and a reflection which we often lack or miss. In a peaceful and supportive space.
I work with adults on face-to-face basis.
In the first session we explore what brought you to counselling, your hopes and expectations . It is a time to ask questions you may have and for me to explain how I work.
I understand that the first meeting could be an anxious occasion, therefore you would be welcome to contact me again with any further questions afterwards.
We start to work together when you feel ready.
As a counsellor I try to create calm non-judgmental space were you feel relaxed and free to speak of whatever concerns you may have and may impact upon yours you inner and outer world .We shall look at your past experiences right up to your present life while focusing on you as the client and trying to relate to the World in different ways.
I started my academic education with an undergraduate degree in Psychology at Metropolitan University and now am working as a part of multi- disciplinary professional group providing eservices for adults with severe learning disabilities.
I then extended my academic education by completing master degree in Psychodynamic Counselling at the Goldsmiths University. While training to be counsellor I volunteered for a number of charity organisations including bereavement, women’s organisations and a service providing counselling for ethnic minorities.
A significant interest for me as a counsellor lies in bereavement work and much of my training and experience is in mental health and personality disorders, however my aim is to meet the needs of as wide as possible group of clients. I have worked with a wide diversity of clients including those whose first language is not English. It is also my aim to continuously progress and develop my skills to be able to work with new groups of clients. I welcome anyone who needs support and time to reflect.
Since having completed my degree at Goldsmiths I have undertaken many other training courses eg. CBT and Mental Health Training, Bereavement Counselling, Trauma Treatments, LGBT and identity.
I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their ethical framework.
I also have regular supervision.
Feedback from Former Clients
Thank you so much for helping me through a dark and painful time in my life. I will never forget the help and support you have given me over the last few months, I wish you all the best for the future.
I can’t thank you enough for taking me through this bewildering and intense year. I literally could not have done it without you! I am very glad we were matched by Lewisham Bereavement, they seemed to pick a perfect fit!
While we have spent the year talking about me I would like to take the opportunity to wish you happiness in everything YOU do.
Thank you again and again

If we agree to work together we would meet for a 60 minute session once a week at the same time.
I also consider counselling every two weeks. Over the phone or online (Skype) in that case I ask the client for 3 to 4 initial sessions.
