About me

I have experience of providing 1:1 counselling to clients from a variety of backgrounds in a number of  different settings.  These have included specialist counselling agencies where I worked with both adults and young people, providing telephone and online counselling at Childline and also offering counselling to students at the Brit School in Selhurst.  Working in such a variety of settings has given me the opportunity to support a number of clients through some extremely difficult times in their lives.

I work with adults, adolescents and children and I have a vast array of experience in supporting clients with a range of issues including anger, abuse, depression, trauma, bereavement, domestic violence, sexuality, loneliness and family breakdown.

I offer sessions during the daytime, evenings and anytime during the weekend.

I also offer specialist support for children aged between 10 and 17 years old with a range of issues i.e. abuse, anger, self harm, depression, bereavement, bullying, suicidal ideation, family breakdown.

I also use a number of different therapies including Person Centred, CBT, Solution Focussed, Psychodynamic, Existentialism and Play Therapy to support clients that would benefit from different ways of working.
