I offer a confidential, non judgemental, empathetic, safe space for my clients to explore any issues they are having and that is why it is imperative to find a counsellor that is right for you. As the relationship between the counsellor and client is where most of the work will be done. I am an experienced Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor who believes no issue is too small. My private practise is in London, Swiss Cottage NW3 and London, St John's Wood NW8.

Counselling provides a safe, impartial and confidential space in which to explore your feelings. Talking to a professional in a confidential setting, safe in the knowledge that what you say will be respectfully listened to, can sometimes help us to understand what is making us feel a certain way.
All of us at some point in our lives will experience times when we feel that we are overwhelmed or cannot cope. These feelings often impact on other areas of our life. These feelings may affect our academic studies, our relationship with others, or our personal life, to the extent that we feel unable to live in a successful or satisfactory way. This may be the time to seek out a counsellor.
Feelings such as anger, grief, anxiety and loneliness can be distressing and cause anguish, especially if they have been with us for a long period of time. Counselling can help you to explore and reflect upon these feelings. It can help you to understand what is at the root of the concern, and can help you to work towards resolving these difficulties.
What happens in a counselling session?
Counselling is not advice and may feel different from other types of help. It is a process where the counsellor can help you to explore and understand difficulties, and then help you to develop your own resources to cope with them. The counsellor will treat you with respect and treat your concerns with sensitivity. You will be carefully listened to, and at the end of counselling there is usually a better understanding of how to cope with existing and future difficulties.
How long does it take?
Each counselling session lasts for 50 minutes, the first meeting with the Counsellor is an assessment session and provides you with an opportunity to discuss issues you wish to explore and what you hope to achieve from the Counselling. This session may not be with the counsellor with whom you are allocated for your next session, once you have a Counsellor allocated this person will be with you for your allocated sessions. Sometimes one or two sessions will be enough for you; sometimes the Counsellor will suggest a limited number of sessions, we generally work in blocks of up to six sessions which occur weekly at the sane time and on the same day - for some people less frequent meetings can be arranged and if you need to take a break this is fine too.
Is the counselling confidential?
Confidentiality is paramount within counselling, the Counselling Service adheres to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework.
Your counsellor will not communicate with anyone about you unless it is with your explicit permission. You and your counsellor may agree to speak to your GP in the event your GP can be helpful in your treatment process. The only circumstance under which information might be shared without your explicit permission is in the event that the counsellor believes you are in danger of harming yourself or others. Even in these circumstances, we would normally seek to speak to you first before contacting anyone else.
