There are various factors that contribute to the way we think, feel, and behave. Taken together they can produce symptoms of sadness, depression, anxiety, fear, stress, helplessness, hopelessness, anger, or frustration. Counselling can provide the support that you need.
I believe that healing comes through relationships. Working together we will craft a therapy that is informed by both my awareness and experience of ideas and practices from a wide range of different therapeutic approaches and your life experiences, abilities and personal resources. This framework creates an atmosphere of discovery and a positive approach to therapy that will help to reduce symptoms, open up choices and provide new possibilities for you.
There is no charge for the initial session, I believe it is important that you feel we are a good fit before we begin therapy. In that initial meeting I will share with you how I work and what to expect in counselling, we will discuss a general idea of what you are experiencing and how we will work together. If that feels right for you we will then contract for 6 sessions. After the 6 sessions we will do a review and plan together for the next 6 sessions or begin to work toward an ending.
I emigrated from the United States with my family in 2009. I earned my Diploma of Higher Education in Theology and Counselling from The London School of Theology and my Post Qualification Certificate in Cognitive Behavioral Skills from the Grove, in London. I received a Post Graduate Certificate of Completion in Somatic Trauma Therapy from Trauma expert Babette Rothschild. I am a registered member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and the ACC. Before Counselling I had a twenty-year career in Business, worked in Ministry, and as a Life Coach.
