About me

I am a BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor and a Registered Therapist with Bupa and Aviva Health Insurance.

I offer therapy to individuals and couples, a safe space for you to explore all feelings without being judged so you feel accepted, valued and understood. My approach is person-centred and non-directive.

I have extensive experience working with people from diverse backgrounds on a range of issues

Specialist areas: identity, longing and belonging
This may (or may not) relate to:
- anxiety, depression or stress
- bereavement or loss
- ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity inc dysphoria
- relationship issues, breakdown or separation.
- family issues, breakdown and rifts
- workplace issues, change or redundancy

Specialist interest: managing change
- making a major decision in your personal or professional life
- coping with upheaval at home or at work
- facing a crossroads in your life

I offer a welcoming and inclusive practice that is culturally sensitive and gay and Trans affirmative. I have extensive experience working with BME and LGBTQ people of all ages and backgrounds.

Testimonial - “I was going through a lot of changes, feeling overwhelmed and not coping. As the sessions progressed, I would leave feeling stronger, happier, more able to trust in my ability to look after myself again.”

Training, qualifications & experience

Experience
I am an experienced Therapist. I trained in classical Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy at Manchester Person Centred Counselling Services and completed my training placement at BlueSCI, a holistic well-being centre for people living with enduring mental health distress.

I am also an experienced Equality and Diversity Professional. I founded and chaired the first Equality and Diversity Network for Housing Practitioners in England and led on equality policy and training for 10 years. Prior to this, I worked for 15 years across London in advice and advocacy contexts. I draw on this broad experience to inform my counselling and supervision clinical practice.
