ABOUT ME

 

I hold a postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling (Humanistic/Integrative) validated by the University of East London and BACP accredited. I am an experienced and intuitive counsellor working with clients face-to-face in Kingston/Teddington/Twickenham area.  My background also includes Gestalt Group Work, Body-Sensing, CBT, Mindfulness and Meditation.

EXPERIENCE

With an early career in publishing and journalism and twenty years working in Special Needs (within mainstream schooling), I have an understanding of a range of issues.  My own personal journey of exploration led me to train as a counsellor.  I feel passionate about giving people the opportunity to tell their own stories and to develop ways of meeting their own pain with kindness and acceptance.  Good listening is often in short supply;  we need to be heard and to be able to talk about difficult issues in a safe space where we can experience ourselves without judgement or denial.
