Guesthouse Counselling and Psychotherapy

There may episodes in your life when you may feel reduced sense of self or hearing from your own internal critics or in conflict with those around you and finding yourself in familiar patterns of behavior. It might be a stressful situation or an impact of previous trauma or a crisis you are experiencing strong feelings of anxiety or fear or dissatisfaction that makes life difficult to cope with and leads you to question how you are living your life or to consider your life from a new perspective to discover what is really important to you.

Counseling and Psychotherapy provide a framework that gives you opportunity to ask these questions in a professional and confidential relationship. The process offers you time and space to reflect on how you are and how you would like to respond what life throws at you. If you are interested in exploring, we may discuss what you would like to achieve and how I may support you.

My focus is to provide a safe environment for you to be able to confide without fear or judgement and protecting your confidentiality and privacy. My approach is person centered with holistic view of Gestalt. I offer medium to long term therapy on one-to-one basis, focusing on your needs according to where you are on your journey.

I have performed a variety of roles as both a professional and a volunteer that have given me opportunities to gain experience of managing, developing and supporting people for 15 years. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and I adhere to the high standards and ethical framework for this membership

I have an UKCP Accredited Post Graduate Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy, an Accredited BACP Diploma in Gestalt Counselling and qualification in Humanistic Counselling. I have experience of working with people who have a wide range of emotional challenges including anxiety and stress, depression, loss, bereavement, fertility problems, relationship conflicts, dysfunctional family difficulties. I have further training on personality disorders that have helped to develop my capacity to support other people in gaining insight to be able to help themselves.

I currently practise in central and southwest London, I work with people age 16 and over. I also work for organisations such as MIND, KWC, and WT that provide high quality and evidence based psychological therapies and monitor client’s health and therapeutic progression.

Following your contact, we coordinate a face-to-face assessment session. During our session together we talk about the areas in your life, which you would like to focus on. If you chose to proceed, subsequent sessions occur on a weekly basis at a regular, mutually agreed time.
