I work with adults, young people and teenagers. My work in private practice, at ELOP (East London Out Project) and LCCS (Re-Vision’s Low Cost Counselling Service), has given me experience working with a range of life challenges:
addictions, obsessions and compulsions
eating distress and body concerns
loss, depression and sadness
anxiety and panic
stress, burnout and breakdown
abuse, violation and trauma
self-harm and suicidal thoughts
intersections of culture, race, disability, gender, sexuality, and relationship diversity
spiritual crisis, dying and death
inter-generational and ancestral trauma
I work with people from a diverse range of backgrounds and welcome you in your individuality. You are welcome in your individual ethnicity and heritage, social class, gender identification and sexuality, with any disability, religious or non-religious beliefs and other identifications.
I am qualified as an Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor with a Diploma from Re-Vision, a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy accredited training, and I am a registered member of the BACP and follow their ethical framework. My integrative orientation means I draw on a range of approaches (including analytical, humanistic and transpersonal), as a way of working with what you might bring. I take a relational approach which means that, theories aside, I believe the development of a therapeutic relationship, where we notice how we relate to one another, can be a potentially meaningful endeavour.
My approach invites a soulful perspective, which is an invitation to look deeper. Whatever soul might mean to you, in counselling we may discover what eats away at your sense of soul and with that, find ways it might flourish again.
“Invite the soul in with your story.”
