Hello, welcome to my profile. I am a qualified, BACP registered and accredited counsellor with 10 years’ experience working with individuals and groups in the workplace, community and education. I work as a person centred counsellor offering weekly one-to-one sessions from my practice locations in London SE1, EC2 and Streatham Hill. Contact me today for an appointment and find out whether my approach feels right for you.
I am a humanistic counsellor but specifically, person centred. This means that I don’t direct the work but I provide the conditions where you can work in your own way and at your own pace. I don’t diagnose or give advice, but instead, walk along beside you to help you find your own best answer.
Sessions are usually weekly, lasting 50 minutes. We start with an initial consultation to explore what has brought you to therapy and what you are looking for. We then decide together how many sessions to start with (usually a minimum of 6) and review the therapy at regular intervals to ensure you are getting the most out of your therapy.
My work is clinically supervised and I undertake regular CPD (continuing professional development) to ensure my working knowledge is relevant and up to date. I abide by the BACP's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
What I work with
I specialise in working with anxiety, stress, life stages, loss, bereavement, bullying, workplace issues, relationship issues, abuse, divorce or separation, women's issues, depression, low self esteem, family issues, fertility and sexuality.
Availability and fees
Daytime and evening appointments available, Mon-Sat. Session fee £60 (SE1, EC2) or £50 (Streatham Hill).

Before becoming a counsellor I worked in the music business which gave me an appreciation of the impact of working under pressure in the business world. After qualifying in 2007 I worked for 6 years with young people at a bespoke therapy service in Medway where I designed and delivered a gardening therapy provision alongside my one-to-one work. I then worked for the NHS in Bermondsey and a community counselling service in Greenwich. I have been offering workplace and personal counselling in my private practice since 2013.
