The London consulting rooms are both stylish, comfortable and the home of my private London practice. You will find the perfect environment in which you can feel confident to discuss you issues… and if you are at all nervous about the first appointment, I will meet you personally in reception and escort you to the counselling suite.
I am a warm and understanding practitioner renowned for putting my clients at ease.
Sometimes the thought of contacting a therapist can be very nerve racking; most people are a little anxious and find it difficult to make the first call or send an email, but let me assure you there is no need to be anxious, you will receive a very warm and caring response from me.
I know by the time people call they are often distressed. I do my best to make the first time you contact me a comfortable experience. With many years experience, I am fully aware of the issues that people face, and I approach all my clients dilemmas in a truly non-judgmental and professional manner.
During our first meeting we will explore the situation at your own pace and I will give you the space and time to explain to me what has lead you make contact. The aim is to increase your understanding and help you explore options you may not have considered, and different ways of coping with and resolving issues.
'Counselling offers you a confidential, therapeutic relationship in a safe environment where you meet regularly, and where the trust and the empathy of the relationship is as important than the theoretical approach.'
Do come and see me in comfortable surroundings in Harley Street.
Discreet and Professional
Where do I practice?
I see clients in London, and in my Cheltenham practice in the Cotswolds. I also work internationally, travelling to, or with clients for bespoke work, or via Skype or telephone.
How do I work?
I draw on a variety of different approaches that can be adapted to suit each individual client. I find most clients want to achieve a balance between talking about the past and concentrating on the present and future.
I will try to assist you by making links between all aspects of your story. I will also help you look for solutions and formulate goals. I can offer you tools and techniques to assist to achieve the outcome you wish for, or simply help you to understand the way you are feeling and why. At no point will I tell you what you should or shouldn't do...it is your life, your journey, but I am here to help you make it a rewarding and happy one.
