Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy Online, reaching clients in East London, Hackney, Shoreditch, E2.

Welcome to my website. Whether you are finding life very difficult, or just have some issues you would like to resolve, I hope you will find my website helpful in deciding if psychotherapy/counselling is right for you at this time in your life.

Counselling and therapy, for you and about you, which is safe caring, and confidential.

I have over 30 years experience in counselling people over all kinds of issues and in different levels of distress or concern. Whatever has brought you to this website, you are very welcome to contact me with questions or to make an appointment.

I am currently taking clients for online or telephone therapy sessions. This can be a rewarding way to explore issues and be supported. Please do contact me if you would like to hear more about this way of experiencing therapy, or would like to arrange to have therapy with me. I offer a free shortened session to help you decide, if you feel this would be helpful to you.

About My Practice

I have offered psychotherapy and counselling since1993.

I offer an effective and non judgemental Client Centred Therapy based on the work of the renowned psychologist Carl Rogers. I aim to be empathic and to truly understand you and the way you see the world.

In therapy with me you will be able to explore any issues or feelings you may want to address, at your own pace.

Being treated with respect and as the unique person that you are, within the therapeutic conditions that I will provide, will help you to grow, to better understand what troubles you and why. This therapy will create the potential for you to make any changes you want to make.

You will be likely to gain better clarity and self understanding, and greater self acceptance. You may come to understand what changes you might find helpful and hopefully will find life more satisfying.

This is a non discriminatory, safe and confidential space and you will not be judged.

A small step in the right direction is sometimes our biggest step

My Experience as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist

I am experienced in counselling people with many different life stories and over all sorts of issues. I believe that you are unique even if you have similar problems and concerns to other people. That means that even if I have helped people with some of the same type of problems that you may have, the way you feel and how you change, is unique to you. I am open and ready to hear about how things feel to you, and to try to help you with this.

There are no issues I would not work with. I have experience of a wide variety of different problems. The people I have helped have had feelings that range from mild upset or worry, through to intense levels of distress and despair.

Alongside my practice as a counsellor and psychotherapist my work in other areas has included over 35 years of helping people in different settings and with specific problems. While in the role of managing a drug and alcohol centre, I set up a Person Centred counselling service to offer a space where people could come for as long as they needed for counselling, and be helped without being judged. I have the same non judgmental values and approach in my work as a private therapist.

My experience in life, and in other work areas has complemented my work as a therapist, given me insight, and deepened my understanding of life outside the therapy room. I think that this wider experience has helped me to be a compassionate and non judgemental therapist.

I supervise other counsellors and offer talks to groups about this type of therapy.

Your feelings are important and will never be too large nor too minor for me to want to hear about and help you with

About Client Centred Therapy

Because everyone is different, the therapy you will receive from me will be individual to you. I will not judge you or make assumptions about you, and will be attentive to you and try to understand you and your concerns. I will listen carefully and closely to you without judgement.

Counselling and psychotherapy is sometimes mistakenly thought of as passive listening, but I will help you to develop your own ability to make decisions and to do that I will be very actively engaged with you. We will work together in the therapy.

The type of therapy I offer is called 'Client Centred.' It is a non-judgemental and well-researched approach to therapy based on the work of renowned American psychologist Carl Rogers. In 2014 I was the Chair of the Association for the Development of the Person Centred Approach (ADPCA) and in that capacity I helped to create the ADPCA conference at Nottingham University in 2014. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.(MBACP)

I have offered person centred counselling and psychotherapy to people struggling with intense problems and strong feelings, as well as people who feel worried, upset, or who need to work out a solution to a problem that they have. I trust my clients to make use of the help I offer to change their lives. Because of my passion and experience in helping people with psychological and emotional problems, I have been asked to write about my work and ideas about therapy. Information about this can be found on the in 'Writings' page in this website.

I am experienced in supervising other therapists and counsellors which I do from my East London practice, and currently on-line.

What issues can counselling help with?

Anger management

Issues relating to sexuality

Difficulties at work or in retirement

Problems with family or school life

Some frequently asked questions

How long is a session?

A regular session lasts for one hour. If you prefer longer or shorter sessions this may be possible and we can discuss this. I will try to provide the length of session you require unless there is a practical reason for not doing so.

How many sessions will there be?

You will be in control of the number of sessions. There is no expectation, take as long as you need - everyone is different.

How confidential is this?

I hope that you will feel you can talk to me in confidence about anything that might be troubling you.

Our talks are confidential which means that unless someone is in real and immediate danger I don't share any private or identifying information about you with anyone else.

If you feel distressed enough, or angry enough, to want to hurt yourself or someone else I will work with you to try to help you from putting these feelings into action. Although it is theoretically possible that I might feel I have no option but to break your confidentiality, I have never actually felt that this was the only option. My preference is always to try help you to seek a solution that you and others can live with.

I have professional supervision to look at how I am working. I do not disclose your identity in my supervision.

What will we talk about?

You will be in charge of what we talk about. You will not be expected to talk about anything you don't want to talk about. There is nothing that you cannot talk about. These are your sessions, for you, and it will be up to you what we talk about.

How much will it cost?
  • The cost for individual counselling and psychotherapy is £70
  • Relationship therapy is £90.
  • Family therapy is £90 per session

  • Supervision costs £70
Is there a fee for cancelling sessions?

There is no fee for cancelling provided a mimimum notice of 24hours is given. The usual fee is chargeable for under 24 hours notice, other than for genuine emergencies.

Is There Any Difference Between Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Counselling usually refers to less intense and briefer contact than psychotherapy. However, in Person centred Therapy you will be free to move in and out of different degrees of feeling and intensity and to stay in counselling or psychotherapy for as long as you wish. There is no real difference between the two in Person Centred Counselling and psychotherapy.

Who can come for therapy?

You can come alone, with partner/s for relationship therapy, with the whole family for family therapy, or if they are willing, you can arrange therapy for a child or adolescent. You can invite any other person if you want them with us, although usually people come alone.

How do I arrange to come for therapy or supervision?

Please feel free to get in touch with more questions or to arrange a meeting here.
