It can be incredibly isolating to feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious or just simply numb and have no-one to talk to who isn’t biased in some way.

5 Years Experience

It can be incredibly isolating to feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious or just simply numb and have no-one to talk to who isn’t biased in some way. Sometimes we all need some support to navigate these uncomfortable or painful feelings. Being truly seen, listened to and understood can make a profound difference in the way you feel and how you cope with life's challenges.

I'm an integrative therapist, which means I've trained in a number of different modalities including CBT, Person-Centered, Humanistic, TA (transactional analysis) and mindfulness and choose a combination of approaches based on my client's needs at the time. Having trained as a yoga teacher and mindfulness teacher as well as a therapeutic life coach I also incorporate a more active approach with accountability and solution-focused methods built in, as well as some meditation if appropriate. I am currently completing professional training in Gestalt Therapy.

The sessions are your time. So we can talk, or not talk, and I certainly would never try to force you into talking about something you didn't want to. It's a very client-led process whereby you get to explore what is troubling you, and I'll feedback what I heard from you and ask questions which help you to think about what you're experiencing from different perspectives to gain greater clarity and understanding of your situation and feelings.

Whilst it is never a walk in the park to work through your emotions, most of my clients have expressed how much better they feel for bringing their deeper feelings to the surface and having a safe and neutral place to explore them rather than trying to hide them all the time.

I completed my Advanced Integrative Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling in 2014, following a year-long placement at the City and East London Bereavement Service, previously funded by the NHS and based out of the Royal London Hospital. Prior to this, I had completed a Certificate in Counselling, a Certificate in Hypnotherapy, the Level 3 CYQ Yoga Teacher qualification and a BA (Hons) in Human Resource Management and had a successful career in HR and Operations Management before retraining. I also completed my Mindfulness Teacher training in 2016, having studied this as part of my yoga teacher and counselling training and completed a Certificate in Therapeutic Life Coaching with the Integrated Coaching Academy in 2017.

My experience has taught me that it is often not about a specific tool or technique brought into the therapeutic relationship, but rather the genuine human connection between coach and client which can be of greatest benefit. To know that there is someone who isn't going to judge you, or anyone else, outside of your day to day life, who supports you and believes in you is something sadly not enough people have experienced. This external support goes a huge way towards assisting you to build your own strength and resilience and to help you heal whatever it is that has been stopping you reaching full happiness.
