My Experience

I have worked with many male and female clients across a range of ages and different cultural backgrounds, who have shared a wide range of issues.

 

I have worked as a counsellor in Private Practice, for the charities Barnardos and Place2Be in both primary/secondary schools and at the Harrow Women's Centre.

Some of the reasons clients have attended therapy are:

  • Low Mood/Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Overwhelming emotions
  • Unable to function at work
  • Bereavement
  • Miscarriage
  • Parenting struggles (including concerns of repeating patterns from own childhood.)
  • New parents (anticipation or arrival of a new baby/multiple birth)
  • Illness of self /friend /relative
  • Relationship and family issues
  • Feelings of isolation/loneliness
  • Cultural issues (e.g. fitting in, accepting/acknowledging differences)
  • Self confidence/esteem
  • Abuse
  • Stress management 
  • Will I ever.......... (e.g. meet a partner, have children)
  • Exam anxiety
  • Parents' relationship breaking down

If you have a personal issue that you do not think fits into any of the above, I am happy to discuss it with you by phone or at an initial appointment. We can then decide if it would be beneficial for you to proceed with therapy or I can refer you to another appropriate professional.
