I trained at The Gestalt Centre, London's leading institute for counselling and psychotherapy based on Gestalt principles, and at CPPD, one of the leading Humanistic Integrative counselling training schools in the UK.
I hold a Certificate in Humanistic Counselling, a Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.
I am a professional member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by their ethics, standards and practices.
The relationship that is formed with a counsellor may feel very different to other relationships. It is a confidential environment, held for you, in which there is no right or wrong and where no judgments are made.
You may decide to come to counselling for a number of reasons. Below is a list of issues that many of us experience and come to counselling for. Each of us is unique, however, and have our own subjective experiences of life, which affect and influence our wellbeing. Counselling may help you to heal and deal with:
An initial assessment meeting will help us to determine together which type of therapy is in your best interests. This will give us the chance to establish whether we will be a good fit for each other and gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about our sessions or counselling in general.
I offer one-to-one sessions, which incorporate mindfulness techniques and postures tailored to you. Sessions focus on yoga for mental wellbeing, such as yoga for anxiety, depression, lethargy, stress and trauma. From time to time, I also offer workshops on yoga for mental health and wellbeing.
Our professional and personal experience made us keenly aware that many women experience intense emotional pressures and anxieties related to fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal wellbeing – much of which can go unrecognised and unsupported. The Nurture Hub was developed in response to this crucial gap in care for women at a vulnerable point in their lives. It provides women with wrap-around pre- and post-natal support at a practical, physical and psychological level.
As part of my work with the Nurture Hub, I provide counselling for individuals and couples. I provide one-to-one yoga sessions for specific wellbeing issues and I take part in a range of community projects, workshops and talks. Birth consultations, hypnobirthing and specialised packages are also available.
