Individual and Relationship Therapy.

Opening up possibilities for change.

What’s on offer?

At Southwark Counselling & Psychotherapy I work with individuals, couples and multiple partners*.

There’s no “right” reason to seek therapy.  My clients come for many varied reasons including conflict, stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, body image issues, disordered eating, addiction, compulsivity, issues around identity, anger, meaning-making, isolation, relationship challenges, life transitions, bereavement, trauma, and the effects of past trauma.

I recognise the disproportionate challenges and barriers faced by minoritised ethnic and racialised people, migrants, refugees, disabled people, survivors of child sexual abuse, and people who are LGBTQ+ or otherwise marginalised in terms of their gender, sexual or relationship diversity.  I actively welcome people from these groups into my practice.

I reserve 10% of my schedule for people who are unwaged or have a low income: 5% at no charge, and 5% at a reduced fee of £20 for individuals and £35 for couples or multiple partners.  If this applies to you, please ask about current availability.

Sessions are available between 12pm and 8pm Tuesday to Thursday, and between 9am and 2pm on Fridays.

*I work with partners in sexual, intimate, romantic, sibling, parent/child, professional and/or friendship relationships.

What next?

This website is a good place to start to see if Southwark Counselling & Psychotherapy is for you.  Take some time to have a look around.

The next step is to arrange a time to meet.  It’s important that you find the right therapist and therapeutic environment for you, so an initial meeting of up to 30 minutes is free of charge, either in person or via Zoom, depending on how you’d prefer to work*.  You can see the therapy room, and we’ll spend some time getting to know each other, understanding what has brought you to therapy, and what you hope to achieve.

If I think we could work well together, I’ll tell you.  If not, I’ll tell you why (most likely because my skills and experience aren’t a good fit for the specific issues you want to address).  If that happens, I’ll do my best to suggest someone else.

If you decide to go ahead, we’ll agree an initial timeframe (usually between 6 weeks and 6 months), which we’ll review regularly as we go.  You won’t be expected to ‘sign up’ straight away – unless you want to – often it’s useful to go away and have a think, which is fine by me.

*For individuals, working online can make therapy much more accessible, but it’s not right for everyone.  If it’s how you’d prefer to work, let’s chat about it when we first meet.  I usually work with couples and multiple partners face to face, to allow for the more complex dynamic between three or more people in the room.  However there are circumstances where online therapy is a good solution, so again, let’s chat about it when we meet.
