14+ Years Post-Accreditation Experience

What to Expect

An introductory assessment meeting enables you to discover if you are comfortable with me, share what worries you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy may help you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an initial assessment session in Balham, London.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what matter concerning your childhood or adult life you discuss. The objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Penny helped me from the very first phone call I made. In our sessions, she gently and patiently got me to first understand what was really the cause of my issues (not what I first thought for sure!), before working with me to be certain that everything was out on the open and being dealt with. If you're feeling that there's something wrong but you don't know just what, Penny's your woman!"

"Penny was very good in making me understand and solve my issues rather than spoon feeding me the solution. I always felt at ease and I always had the support necessary. She made me understand my value and helped me become a stronger more secure person."

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Penny was incredibly helpful and instrumental in my progress with my mental health. With Penny i never felt embarrassed or trivial. I found myself making some realisations and learning some key coping tools for my every day life. I moved from the area but miss her sessions terribly, she is patient and wise and was very aspirational to me."
