Subject to weather permitting, I provide Walk & Talk Therapy from Spring - Autumn.
Remotely: You can choose a quiet outdoor space of your choice where you live that is safe and confidential for you to walk and talk during your session remotely by telephone. Hopefully, you can enjoy being outdoors, siting or walking whilst enjoying your session at the same time.
Face to Face: If you live around my practice location in Bromley Kent and find using online and telephone therapy unsuitable or tiresome, there are lush green open spaces, streams, ponds with ducks and park benches in Churchill Gardens in Bromley Kent. We can walk through the park or sit to chat whilst adhering to the 2 meter rule, using face covering and hand sanitisers.
This is perfect for Disabled clients with hearing loss and speech problems as you can communicate via live chat text on Zoom.
I am aware there maybe some clients who may find it challenging to use the traditional ways of counselling especially, if they are partially deaf or have speech problems which they may feel embarrassed by. This might be suitable for you.
It's been a year since you passed
It turned into a dark winter evening when I was told 12 months ago on 10th March 2020 at 7:30pm that my dad had passed away. The days following that felt darker and the pain of not seeing or speaking to him lingered in my heart. I was in shock as I had only spoken to him 2 days prior and he seemed weak but okay. No matter how old our parents are, we still feel the pain in their death. Not being able to call dad and see him, was like a passing wind I could feel but not touch. I attended bereavement counselling for 9 weeks and it helped me understand my feeling around his death and thereafter. As a Counsellor, this helped me recover quickly so I could support my own clients after taking a few weeks off work to grieve. Grieving takes time and we all grieve differently and over the past 12 months when I think of my dad, the pain becomes lesser because I have learnt to fill my mind with good memories. I know he is at peace and resting well in God's Heaven which gives me so much peace right now. I love you dad. Rest in Peace.

House of Thoughts
As I meditated, I thought to myself. It is a constant battle for us humans to identify negative and positive thoughts and differentiate which is actually ours or that nagging voice from the past or present. It can sometimes feel like the good and bad fighting to gain dominance with a persistent pressure on one's mind that sometimes seem too much to bear. Learning to identify your thoughts and filtering them in order to have a clear view may sometimes feel challenging. You are not alone if your feel that way. Writing down your thoughts as they occur may help you identify them, noticing any feelings you have as you write them down to reflect on.
