About me

I am currently fully booked

There are times when life can be difficult and we may experience events that feel out of our control.  I aim to offer a safe, confidential and compassionate space where together we can work through your problems and issues at a pace and depth that suits you.  I believe that every unique person has the potential to live more fully and I can support you to find the inner resources to heal yourself and promote growth and lasting change.

I am a humanistic psychotherapist and CBT counsesllor and I can work in a variety of ways depending on what you bring and how you want to work.   I am happy to answer any questions you may have and please feel free to ring me for a chat, or if you prefer I will answer text or email queries.

I work from the core values of honesty, respect, trust, acceptance and commitment to client well-being.

Since 2009 I have worked with a diverse range of people on a broad variety of issues including depression, anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, phobias, stress, loss, abuse, bullying and low self-esteem.

I have particular experience working with addiction, life transitions, long-term health conditions, confidence and self-acceptance, and those struggling with gender identity issues.  I work with adults, young people and older people coping with changes in their life.

I have a special interest in working with personal development and as such I have worked as a personal development facilitator on a counsellor training degree programme.

I work from a peaceful, bright room that has plenty of free parking and is a couple of minutes walk from Maze Hill Station, bus routes and 10 minutes walk from the DLR.
