About Me

Hi, I'm Candy, a qualified integrative counsellor based in South West London.

I am very interested in difference and diversity, the needs and goals of each of my clients are important to me and therefore, I offer a unique and tailored counselling service. I am also trained to offer long-term or open-ended therapy.

I aim to create a calm and non-judgemental environment where you are guided to freely explore your present and past. I will listen to you and help you to have insight into your thoughts and feelings. I will support you with your needs, enabling you to make positive decisions about your life.

Before embarking on a career in counselling, I worked in the fashion industry in Milan as both a designer and lecturer/tutor and later running my own retail business.

I understand what it feels like to be under pressure in an intensively demanding and challenging creative environment and how that can affect your self-esteem, self-confidence, it can create anxiety and depression but also experience of isolation, loneliness and stress. I believe that changing your perspective often enables a passion for life to return and with it goals accomplished and aspirations realised.

If you would like to discuss working together, please do call or email me.
