About me

Welcome ... I am an experienced counsellor and, working together, I can help you. We all experience loss and disappointment at some stage in life. Sometimes these challenges can be come to terms with without the help of a counsellor; sometimes difficulties persist and life can seem overwhelming and directionless.

Counselling can help you to explore and clarify the changes needed to leading a more fulfilling and purposeful life.

I work integratively. I draw on different therapeutic traditions - psychodynamic, humanistic, existential - to provide the best possible service for the specific needs of each client.

The relationship between client and counsellor is one of confidentiality and trust. That relationship is a means for you to discover new ways of relating to your self, to others and the world.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling (2008) CPCAP. I also have NDD in Fine Art and ATC.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and work within their code of ethics.

I am committed to my own Continuing Professional Development. Further training includes-
Family Systems Perspectives in Bereavement; Attachment and loss; Mindfulness CBT; Creativity issues; Shame; Identity; Anxiety; Depression; Codependency; Addiction.

I have worked as a bereavement counsellor for Lewisham Bereavement Counselling Services for over nine years. My experience includes working with individuals who have traumatic bereavements and sudden loss. Before becoming a counsellor, I worked in arts education and set up creative projects in the community and care home settings. This has given me invaluable experience of working with others - building relationships and understanding difference.
