What is therapy?
Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about issues that are affecting your life; anything that may be confusing, painful, difficult or uncomfortable. It is a space to explore your thoughts and feelings and consider all aspects and alternatives, making some changes, should you wish. It allows you to speak to someone who is trained to listen attentively and to be supported in a non-judgmental way.
I am an integrative, humanistic counsellor.
In plain English, that means I will encourage you to consider your feelings, and take responsibility for your thoughts, actions, choices. The emphasis will be on your self-development and achieving your potential.
I use my knowledge of several distinct theories, primarily drawing on the Person-centred therapy of Carl Rogers, and including Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Existentialism and Jungian therapy, applying them seamlessly in a way that is best for your needs.
I provide general counselling to individuals, and have a particular interest in Highly Sensitive Persons and working with parents of Highly Sensitive Children.
Please get in touch if you would like an initial 15 minute on-line consultation free of charge, to see what brings you to therapy and for me to check if I can be of help; it is also for you to see if you would like to work with me as a counsellor.
I offer face-to-face appointments in Islington, London, close to Angel tube in N1 and also in central Stroud, Gloucestershire.
In addition, online therapy is possible, where appropriate, for those who can’t see me in person.
