Welcome and thank you for visiting. My name is Michelle and I provide therapeutic counselling in London, Brockley, SE4 and surrounding areas as well as online throughout the UK.
I am a qualified person-centred therapist. I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. I have experience working with a wide range of presenting issues including Trauma, Anxiety, Stress and Loss.
I have many years experience working directly and indirectly with clients who have experienced child sexual abuse and domestic abuse
In crisis and need immediate help? Call Samaritans on 116 123 or go to your nearest A&E Department. Need immediate support? Text SHOUT to 85258 24/7 to chat by text.
I offer a warm, friendly and confidential space to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it. I will work alongside you to understand your perspective of the world and the challenges you face.
Sometimes there are things in life that we struggle with, maybe there has been a recent event that has caused you to look for some additional support or maybe unresolved past experiences affect you now and you feel ready to address this.
I am a person-centred therapist, which means I have a empathic, non-judgemental approach and provide emotional support. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives- and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn't about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes
Therapy takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy – and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.
Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression – many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Therapy gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems – and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.
Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, heathier choices moving forward.
People come to me for help for a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through therapy:
Low confidence and self esteem
Issues relating to sexuality
Feelings of stress or anxiety
Grief, loss or bereavement
Trauma and post-traumatic stress
I offer Face to Face sessions at my office in Brockley SE London and I offer online sessions to anyone living within the UK.
My sessions are for 50 minutes, usually taking place on a weekly basis or fortnightly and cost £70 per session. I offer a 15 minute telephone consultation to answer any questions you may have and to gain a better understanding of your needs. Note that if you want to cancel a session I require 48 hours' notice: otherwise you will still need to pay for any sessions missed. I accept cash and bank transfer.
