About me

I am a qualified integrative counsellor, with 9 years experience working for a drug and alcohol a charity organisation based in London. I currently work with clients who are experiencing substance misuse who would like to either reduce or work towards abstinence by using various motivation and cognitive behaviour techniques and skills to help individuals work towards their long term goals.

As part of my counselling qualification I successfully completed over 150 hours of counselling both adults and children within a drug and alcohol service and also within a primary school setting.

I am a conscientious, self-motivated and reliable individual with over 'twenty years’ experience of supporting vulnerable adults and children. I regard myself as an effective problem solver with the ability to remain calm and maintain a professional approach adhering to the ethical guidelines and principles of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapist who I am registered with, completing my Certificate of Proficiency .

I am passionate about empowering and motivating clients to  reach their true potential by helping clients to explore themselves or any obstacles, past or current issues they feel stuck and unable to move forward in their lives.  I work with clients by using person-centred or psychodynamic counselling or art approaches within a safe and confidential environment which help clients to eventually move forward.

I offer up to 12 sessions with the possibility of extending up to 24 sessions.
