About me

About Me
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who has worked in a range of settings including the NHS, University Counselling Services and private practice. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist and am also registered with UKRCP.

How Counselling can help
Counselling provides a safe and confidential setting for people to explore what is troubling them or holding them back. Counselling allows people to discuss and think about these issues without being judged or criticised. For many people, not only does counselling help to alleviate some of the unpleasant symptoms caused by emotional distress, but it also supports long-term change by addressing the root causes of the problems.

Location and availability
My consulting room is very conveniently situated , two minutes' walk from Oxford Circus underground station. I see people early in the morning, during the day or in the evening.

Specialist areas
I work with people experiencing a wide range of difficulties and problems in their lives, as well as people who want to break away from old patterns and ways of behaving. Specific areas include:

Stress and Anxiety
Family and Relationship issues
Work-related issues
Studying-related issues
Identity and Sexuality
Self Esteem
Bereavement and Loss
Separation and divorce
Low self confidence
Eating disorders
Anger management

I offer weekly sessions.
