I provide a safe, gentle and non judgemental space to talk. As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I accept that as individuals we are all unique and have different needs when seeking therapy and support. I believe that it is ultimately the relationship between the client and therapist that is fundamental for a trusting, understanding and safe therapeutic alliance and this allows for the opportunity to explore your feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour.
I believe in the benefits of counselling and psychotherapy to explore and understand ourselves in both our past and present relationships and how, within the working alliance, we can explore and gain understanding and explanation, and how these beliefs may affect ourselves in the here and now.
As a member of the BACP, I am bound by, and adhere to, their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have private practices in Kings Cross, WC1, Clerkenwell EC1 and Hertford, Hertfordshire, SG14.

Making the decision to approach therapy or counselling can be a positive step. It can help to gain a greater understanding to find the resources to make changes. It can also lead to self-discovery and self-awareness to live a more fulfilling life and to have more meaningful interpersonal relationships. You may be deciding to seek therapy because you are feeling low or in distress, or that you are confused with painful feelings that you do not understand, but you may also be coming from a place of curiosity. I am here to guide you through this process.
