Catford, Forest Hill & Sydenham Counsellor & Psychotherapist (South East London)

Is life feeling difficult right now? Maybe you're struggling with anxiety or experiencing relationship issues or just not feeling 'quite right'? More and more people - me included - have found it helpful to explore life's struggles in a confidential space. Taking a closer look at our life's in this way can be transformative.

Together we can work towards creating more fulfillment in your life.

Choosing to begin counselling & psychotherapy with a therapist can feel like a big step...this choice often comes at a time when we might be feeling at our lowest or our most vulnerable - this can make the step feel even bigger:

As a private practice counsellor & psychotherapist, in the Forest Hill area and surrounds, I am experienced in working with clients through many life challenges including but not limited to:

  • Abuse
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Identity
  • Loneliness
  • Relationships
  • Shame
  • Stress
  • Feeling stuck
  • Trauma

    Maybe your difficulties don't neatly fit under a 'heading' - please feel free to get in touch and tell me a little about what is going on for you.

    My counselling & psychotherapy practice is based in SE6 (South East London) - centrally located between Catford, Forest Hill & Sydenham - and easily accessed from other locations in South East London such as Beckenham, Hither Green, Honor Oak & Penge.

  • What To Expect From Me As Your Counsellor/ Psychotherapist

    I will offer you a relationship within which you'll come to find it easier to listen to, know and accept yourself and from there make more fulfilling choices for yourself.

    I will encourage you to tell me how you’re feeling as I believe that putting things into words, to someone else, helps all of us process our feelings: explore them, manage them and begin to move on from them.

    We'll meet once a week at the same time and day - this allows us to build up trust to enable you to go to potentially difficult places.

    In order to cope, our daily life's difficulties may have needed to have been put to the side. Opening up and taking a closer look at difficult areas of our life's may leave you feeling a little tender initially...similar to how a physical wound might sting as you clean it in order to allow it to heal. As difficulties are faced some of us find that there is a period of feeling like things have taken a bit of a dip prior to the relief of feeling better. This is a well-known phenomena in therapy and it does not mean the therapy is not working...often quite the opposite. I encourage you to remember this and hold on in there. As your therapist I will be alongside you to support you.
