Counselling and Psychotherapy for individuals in Kingston Upon Thames

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Depth Psychotherapy and Counselling Services.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are life's challenges getting on top of you? Is there something about your life you really want to change but don't know how?

Get in Touch

I am an Integrative, Holistic, and Transpersonal psychotherapist and counsellor. I have been working in private practice and in the voluntary sector since 2003. I am a registered member of BACP and UKCP. I work online, and have a private practice in Kingston Upon Thames and Hampton Hill providing in-person sessions for individuals/adults, and counselling students around a wide range of issues.

Over the last 22 years, I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of issues. My bespoke one-to-one sessions are tailored to each client’s individual needs and can help with anxiety, depression and loss of meaning, bereavement, grief and loss, abuse, trauma, chronic shame, dissociation, Anger, relationship difficulties, domestic violence, isolation and withdrawal, difficulties involving difference, discrimination and marginalisation, life-transitions and creative self-discovery.

I have worked with PTSD, Borderline Personality and Dissociative Identity Disorders, Institutional Abuse, and with neurodiverse clients, counselling students and artists.

What I'm Like as a Therapist and How I work with Clients

I bring all of me into my work. I care deeply about my clients and the situations they are struggling with. My training and experiences enable me to foster and maintain deep and sustained emotional contact, and a supportive relationship that empowers and embraces difference and diversity. You will be respected in your unique diversity, race, gender, neurodiversity, and spiritual and sexual orientation in a professional way. I believe that to truly transform our lives in a lasting way, we need to engage from the roots. For some clients working in depth, including with soul-loss, brings a way of accessing a deeper wisdom and reconnecting with parts of themselves that have fragmented, been disowned, or frozen in time. The approaches I use facilitate the exploration of the underlying, repressed, and unconscious patterns that may have been directing your life, and influencing your thoughts, emotions, behaviours, and relationships beneath your conscious awareness. Rediscovering these disowned parts of ourselves can bring a sense of wholeness.

My Approach

I bring to my work a unique alchemy by using a broad range of therapeutic approaches, which means that I seek to develop a way of working with you which is especially tailored for you, in order to facilitate the transformation you yearn for. The approaches I draw from I draw especially from Humanistic, Relational, Psychodynamic, Existential, Jungian, Archetypal and Transpersonal approaches, In Psychoanalytic work the emphasis is on how past patterns repeat themselves, and also can transform themselves, in the present. Existential and Jungian approaches offer specific methods to relieve the manifestations of particular difficulties. Transpersonal practice draws from that creative renewal for living, through the exploration of dreams, myths, creative mediums and imagination to address issues about ‘way of life’, which can have a surprising impact on specific life difficulties. Or, we may explore transpersonal matters such as meaning, calling, soul, ecology and the more-than-personal.

Integrative psychotherapy draws from the wisdom of the psyche and its creative and integrative functions to widen perspective, release feeling, to address deep-rooted emotional concerns, to increase self-awareness,

and to open doors to new life possibilities. Today, I bring these experiences and approaches together in an eclectic approach to a healing practice.


How Can Counselling Help?

Throughout the years, I have seen how working with a therapist can be especially helpful in terms of having a positive relationship with another person who really listens, is sensitive to our needs, and to the issues that we face in life and in today's society. Being truly seen, heard and valued by another is often a rare occurrence. This is especially true for those of us who had difficult family relationships in childhood. 

You might think that you just have to learn to communicate better or be less 'this way' and more 'that way', or you may convince yourself

that you should be able to stay connected by sheer will power, or a change in behaviour, but in reality, these coping strategies leave us feeling empty. The work of healing requires human connection and genuine care, that is why this work is so creative and profound for both the client and therapist. Something happens in therapy that would not happen if you were talking to a friend or considering things by yourself. so whatever your reasons are for coming to therapy; I am here to support you, and hold a space for you in a way that allows you to get in touch with the the healing potential and the compassion within you. A space where you can connect with your wellbeing and

your desire to live, fully alive and fully awake.

Words of Wisdom from Rumi

This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture,

still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the door laughing,

and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,

because each has been sent

as a guide from beyond. (The Guest House - Rumi)
