About me

I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and work "integratively". This ensures that my approach is unique for each client.

Practising in Clapham and Streatham. I provide counselling and psychotherapy to clients with a wide variety of issues and concerns. One of my main areas of work is with clients suffering with anxiety.

Most of us encounter problems at some point in life that we struggle to deal with ourselves, or we may find it difficult to gain resolution to issues which prevent us from moving forward in a positive and happy way. Life can often feel like a jigsaw puzzle where the pieces do not fit or some are missing. Entering into a therapeutic relationship within a safe environment will allow you to explore how to fit the pieces together again to complete a positive picture.

I offer both short term issue focused counselling as well as long term psychotherapy, assisting each individual to find their own way to a happier life. I work with a broad spectrum of psychological and emotional issues such as:

  • Adoption issues
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks
  • Bereavement
  • Self Esteem/Confidence Issues
  • Work Issues
  • Redundancy
  • Relationships
  • Spiritual Issues
  • Sexual Issues/Sexual Orientation
  • Addiction
  • Alcohol and Drug Dependency
  • Anger/Aggression
  • Abuse

I am currently available for daytime appointments from The Awareness Centre, Abbeville Road, Clapham and Minehead Road near Streatham common.

I hold a post graduate diploma in Transpersonal and Integrative Psychotherapy from the Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy Education (CCPE).

In addition to my private work, I work for CAPE an established registered mental health organisation facilitating group therapy, for people who experience severe and enduring mental health difficulties living in the London Borough of Ealing.

I work with a broad cross spectrum of therapy clients. Organisations I have worked with include Bereft bereavement service and Fresh Start Psychotherapy.
