Providing a safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore, reflect and grow through life's challenges
How are you doing? Really?
Almost all of my clients contact me because they just want to get rid of some painful emotion, feeling or anxiety they can’t seem to shake off, no matter how hard they try.
No amount of friendly ‘advice’ or self-help guides seems to be lifting the dark cloud. It hangs heavy around you and perhaps you are wondering if you will ever feel differently again? Well, simply looking for a therapist is a step towards living the life you want.
Hello and welcome
I’m Stacey, a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist based in South East London. I offer face-to-face counselling in my practice in East Dulwich which is also easily accessible from Peckham, Nunhead, Forest Hill, Sydenham and Honor Oak.
As a certified online counsellor, registered with ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online), I am trained to provide online therapy via video-call (Zoom) or telephone.
I also work alongside Anxiety UK as one of their Approved Therapists providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries*

An investment in you
YOU are wonderful, unique and powerful. Do you believe that about yourself? Or do you feel inadequate? Unimportant? Are your needs at the bottom of the list?
Are you feeling anxious? Stressed? Sad? Angry? Depressed? Or perhaps you haven’t felt any emotion for a while; a numbness that is disconnecting and isolating.
Imagine being able to work on your self-esteem in the same way you might work on your physical fitness? Putting the effort in to get mentally strong, fit and healthy.
Does that investment feel right for you, right now?
Making the choice to begin therapy can be daunting. How do I know it will work? Who do I pick as my counsellor? What if it brings up too much difficult stuff for me? What kind of therapist will be right for me?
I won’t lie. It’s not always easy. It can sometimes feel like an emotional rollercoaster. But with every realisation, you become more aware. That self-awareness breeds acceptance. If you can begin to accept yourself then you don’t need to hold on to any of those negative thoughts or patterns of behaviour that do not serve you well.
You don’t have to hold on to any of those restricting labels given to you by others.
You can simply be, rather than ‘try to be’.
That is my commitment to you as your therapist. To provide a safe space for you to truly be you and discover how hugely empowering that can become.
Talk to me, I’m listening
Whether it be face to face at my practice in Dulwich, a walking session through a park in Forest Hill or online via Zoom, I offer many different styles of therapy, which hopefully helps to make counselling accessible to lots of different people.
Take a look at what I offer and see what might be a good fit for you. If you would like to talk to me further about what is bringing you to therapy, your expectations and to get a better understanding of how we could work together, please contact me for a 20 minute initial consultation free of charge.
COVID DISCLAIMER: During the current COVID restrictions, I am currently only offering online therapy as I do not wish to compromise client confidentiality should I need to use track and trace. I hope to resume face-to-face counselling in my East Dulwich & Forest Hill practice once restrictions lift and it feels safe to do so.
