Constance

SW17 South London

My experience 

Constance transitioned from journalist to therapist after three years of working in the city. She has a clear understanding of the impact stress and anxiety can have on the body and mind and the life-changing benefits of therapy.

Constance worked for the NHS through the pandemic and has experience working with short-term (a minimum of 6 sessions) and long-term (open-ended) therapy with people from all cultural backgrounds.

Constance has worked in-depth with panic attacks, generalised anxiety disorder, low self-esteem, stress, depression, guilt, shame, existential crises, identity, life transitions, anger. She also has experience working with trauma, relationships, physical and emotional abuse, self-harm, eating disorders, bereavement, fertility, addiction, life transitions, loneliness, suicidal ideation and a range of other issues.


Constance has worked with multi-disciplinary teams, helping high-risk clients, collaborating with GPs, teachers, pastoral care and social services.


As well as working with adults of all ages Constance has worked in-depth with young adults, adolescents and children in an educational setting. She is currently working as a school counsellor at a private school in south London part-time. 


How I work with clients

"I adapt my practice to each client's needs, incorporating different techniques including, CBT, mindfulness, autogenic training techniques, and creative therapy.


My priority is for all of my clients to feel safe and grounded when working with me. I try to make sure all of my clients come away from the therapy with a better understanding of themselves and with the tools they need to continue forward in their lives and be able to cope with future life challenges.


I believe that the mind and the body are intrinsically interlinked and I am interested in the impact that anxiety and trauma have on the body and mind. I am also particularly interested in the impact that technology is having on our day-to-day mental well-being. I have completed specific training in this area.

I can work in a more goal-focused short-term approach or a more analytical long-term approach depending on what the client needs and wants."
