Experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering counselling in Kingston to adults and young people aged 11+.
My aim is to work alongside you to help you make sense of any issues in your life that are getting you down, and help you to get your life back on track, feel more at ease with yourself, grow in confidence or improve your relationships.
I take an integrative approach that is primarily person-centred, informed by psychodynamic theory and using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or solution-focused techniques as appropriate.
This means that I work collaboratively with you to explore your thoughts and feelings about anything that is troubling you or what you would like to change in your life now, while being aware of any impact that past events and relationships may have in the present.
I can work on a short term or long term basis depending on what feels right for you.

I have experience of working with adults, adolescents and children from a diverse range of backgrounds in both short term and long term work, in a large GP practice, in community counselling settings, and in schools. I have worked with adults with a wide variety of emotional health issues and life events that bring them to counselling. My experience includes, but is not limited to: troubled relationships, low self-confidence, depression, stress, abuse, parenting, caring, long term illness (including hereditary disorders), addictions and living with addiction in the family.
Alongside my private practice, I am currently working with young people aged 11-19 in a youth counselling service and as a school counsellor in secondary schools working with adolescents with issues such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, school or friendship issues, family issues such as parents’ divorce, or struggling with their sense of identity.
I also have experience of offering helpline support and guidance to parents concerned about their children’s emotional wellbeing or behaviour.
