About me

I offer a space to be, and to talk about whatever you bring to the sessions, with someone who is trained to listen with empathy and without judgement, to reflect and to offer insight. I practice from my home between Blackheath and Kidbrooke,south-east London, near to public transport and with space for parking.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2004. Since then I have built up experience of seeing clients with a wide range of issues including bereavement and loss, depression and anxiety, physical illness, relationship issues, issues around self-esteem and self-confidence, and work-related issues.

I also have interests in spirituality and creativity, and how we may fulfil our potential and become more the people we are meant to be.

I have a Christian background but prefer to think of myself as spiritual rather than religious. My background has given me experience and insight into the struggles that can often be experienced on the journey of faith. I welcome enquiries from those who may be undergoing struggles on their faith journey or experiencing prejudice from within their faith community, or indeed those who may be looking for spiritual guidance. However, I do not think of myself as a Christian counsellor, and therefore this would not come into the counselling sessions unless it is brought by the client.

My professional experience has also included working in student support in a university.

On the website you will also find some reflections on depression on the blog page.

Training, qualifications & experience

Post-graduate diploma in Psychosynthesis counselling from the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust, London Bridge. My training is accredited by BACP and the University of East London.

As well as my work with private clients, I have experience of working in a busy community counselling service, seeing clients with a wide range of issues. I have also practice as a counsellor in higher education, and recently did a year's placement with Place2Be, working with children in a primary school.
