I am a female counsellor offering one to one sessions. I work with adults only, both male and female. My particular areas of interest are: depression, anxiety, stress, anger, separation/divorce, loss, domestic abuse, rape and sexual assault, self- esteem and self- worth, spirituality, effects of racism, identity & belonging, adoption issues and personal development. However, many people are unsure of exactly what they would identify as their own particular issue and just feel that, generally, life feels unsatisfactory to them and I am also very much interested in this area.
My practice is located in Stratford, East London and the Gestalt Centre, Kings Cross.

What you can expect from counselling
You can expect to be heard, to be respected and valued.
Your counselling sessions would normally take place weekly and provides a confidential, non-judgemental and safe space in which you can truly be yourself and have the time to focus entirely on you and your concerns.
We would work together to help you to gain a fuller understanding of yourself, your particular difficulties and how you might begin to address them.
To find out more, or to book an appointment for an initial, exploratory session please give me a call. If you reach my voicemail, please leave a message and I will call you back.
