Working as a counsellor is like working as a detective, whilst a client might discuss a challenging life situation, I see it as my job to investigate the origin, and help determine the source of the current conflict or suffering. The narrative is typically a manifestation that has taken years to surface.
Many of my clients have continued to work with me due to the fact that we have quickly and easily gained a good rapport, it is not my job to be liked but I find that as soon as we start to understand one another, through a process of active and compassionate communication, respect, and rapport is quickly established.
My educational background includes a Bsc. in Psychology from London Metropolitan University. Certified Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner, and more than 10 years of experience counselling, as well as suicide prevention with the Samaritans.
I am well aware of the diversity of my clients needs and have therefore explored a variety of alternative healing modalities. I am also a practicing Reiki Master, a Thai Massage Therapist, and a certified Yoga Teacher.
