About me

I am a person-centred counsellor, registered and accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.  Our initial session will be an opportunity for you talk about your concerns, experience how I work and decide if you feel comfortable working with me. I consider the relationship between counsellor and client to be essential to the therapeutic process. My aim is to offer you a confidential, safe, understanding and non-judgemental space where you can explore your concerns at your own pace.

I am also on the team of counsellors working with One Therapy London in Central London.  You can make appointments see me at their Central London practice directly through me.

I offer therapy to adults and young people in South East London, Central London, and nationally and internationally via Skype. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including depression, low self-esteem, life crisis and change, gender and sexuality issues, bereavement and loss, self-harm, divorce, relationship and family problems. I work with people in alternative relationships and those who identify as gender queer.

I have experience of running a school counselling service and worked as a volunteer counsellor at the Metro Centre, an organisation offering services to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities in South East London.

My article, 'A Kink in the Process' was published in the July 2010 issue of Therapy Today, the journal produced by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. You can follow the link to the article here: http://www.therapytoday.net/article/52/categories/

I deliver training to counsellors and therapists on raising awareness of and working sensitively with people with alternative sexualities (BDSM) for Pink Therapy and a number of other organisations.  I am a qualified and experienced clinical supervisor, providing supervision to individual therapists and to groups within community counselling services.

I gained my degree in Fine Art from Camberwell School of Art and see many people who work within the visual and performing arts.

I also have extensive experience in the social care sector, working with people with physical/learning disabilities.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I work with people who identify as having an alternative sexuality, are in alternative relationships or who may have concerns regarding their sexuality, sexual identity or sexual practices. This includes people who are in polyamorous or asexual relationships and people who identify as 'kink' or practice BDSM (bondage, dominance, discipline, submission, sadomasochism).

I also work with people exploring their gender identity, or who are considering beginning the process of transition, or who are in the process of or have completed transition.

Fees

I charge £45 for the initial session.  Further appointments are charged on a sliding scale based on gross income, starting at £50.  Regular appointments are 50 minutes long.  I have some reduced rate appointments depending on circumstances and availability.

For appointments in Central London on Wednesdays, where I work for One Therapy London,  fees fall between £60 - £100 per session.  A limited number of off-peak appointments are available at £50 per session.
