LONDON BRIDGE PSYChOTHERAPY
Whatever is troubling you, causing distress, anxiety, fear or unhappiness, therapy offers a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space to explore and help with a range of life’s issues. These might include relationship difficulties, past traumas, depression, loss, work or creative problems, and issues around identity and
self-worth. As a highly trained therapist with almost twenty years of experience working for various mental health charities and in private practice, I offer counselling and psychotherapy to both individuals and couples.

Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Dip Couns, MA Couns, MBACP
I truly believe that we all possess the power to heal our traumas, fulfill our potential and reach our goals given the right support, care and guidance.
I am an integrative therapist, drawing from a range of therapeutic techniques and ideas to provide an individual service to each client according to their specific needs. My approach is relational, meaning that I see therapy as a joint venture in which I work with my clients to help them understand themselves, their motivations, needs and whatever may be holding them back from achieving their goals and enjoying their lives.
It is important that you find the right therapist for you, someone that you feel comfortable enough with to develop a relationship of trust and understanding.
COUNSELLING OR PSYCHOTHERAPY?
I would see the main difference between counselling and psychotherapy as relating to the time-scale of the therapy and the level of emotional and psychic depth being worked with. Counselling is often regarded as more short-term work, focussed on the present and often targeting quite specific issues in a goal-oriented way. Psychotherapy, on the other hand tends to be a longer-term endeavour which explores the client’s past life experiences and involves working at greater relational depth on more complex and deep-rooted issues.
The needs and wishes of the client would dictate the kind of therapy offered.
