About me

My main aim is to put you at ease. When problems become overwhelming it can be hard to talk to friends or a family member and to make sense of life in general. At times like this,  it can be helpful to talk to someone who is professionally trained. I am experienced at working with anxiety, depression and relationship issues such as divorce and compulsive affairs.

Relational issues in the workplace is another area I have relevant experience, having helped clients through the stresses of being bullied, power and  authority in relation to superiors and colleagues.

If you feel overwhelmed, stuck by your circumstances or going round in circles as if nothing was ever going to change, then counselling by a professional like me can help you. I provide a confidential and non-judgmental space where you can talk and explore troubling thoughts and emotions.

I am experienced in providing one to one therapy to clients that come with a wide range of issues. My office is conveniently placed in East London (E14) serving - SE21, SE24 and E15 and people from other areas mainly working in Canary Wharf and Stratford.

I also practice in Banstead, Surrey, serving the SM7, CR5, SM7, KT18, KT19 and KT20 areas.

I look forward to hear from you. Call or text me on 07930 62 48 24 or visit my website -

Training, qualifications & experience

I have gone through some personal challenges in my life and after benefiting from counselling myself, I decided to use my experiences and training to support others.

Having also worked for 20 years in the financial sector, I find that my background in finance helps me to understand the anxieties and challenges confronted in the work place, as well as the demands it makes at a personal level.

Additionally, my experience working as an Honorary Psychotherapist in the NHS and in a Multi Ethnic Counselling Service, supports and helps me understand issues at a deeper psychological level.

Fees

Canary Wharf:   £70.00 per session

Banstead: £55.00 per session

First session - What to expect
The initial consultation will help us to explore what has brought you to therapy. It is an opportunity to talk about any concerns you might have about counselling and a chance to ask me any questions you may have about therapy. It is also a chance to reflect how you might feel about working with me and for me to see if I am the right counsellor for you.

Frequency and length of sessions
Sessions last 50 minutes and take place at regular times once a week. The length of the therapeutic contract varies and can be established at the initial consultation.I offer short term: 6-8 sessions, mid term: 12 sessions and longer term ones. The length of the counselling can be agreed on after reflecting personal needs, and during the initial consultation we will also have the opportunity to clarify timing for the sessions.
