I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist offering face-to-face counselling with adults, couples and teenagers. I have experience in working with a range of presenting issues including depression and anxiety, anger issues, panic attacks, social anxiety, relationship problems, low self-esteem and bereavement.
Sometimes it can be difficult to express ‘real’ emotions as we can often feel guilt or shame - we may even fear disapproval from others. Everybody experiences negative emotions like anger, guilt, jealously or depression and there is nothing ‘bad’ about these feelings, in themselves. They are just your response to certain situations. My aim as a counsellor is to help you explore these emotions in a safe and nurturing environment, without the fear of judgement or criticism.
My integrative training means I combine different approaches to my counselling work including psychoanalysis, person-centred, existential and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I also like to work creatively, using methods to help clients communicate when words are too difficult.
My experience includes working for the NHS at a GP surgery counselling adults with depression and anxiety, anger issues, affairs and betrayals, social anxiety, low self-esteem, work stress, panic attacks and drug/alcohol addictions. I've also worked as a school counsellor at a secondary school in Brixton, counselling students with issues such as bullying, exam stress, self-harm, sexuality, identity issues and those on the autistic spectrum. I like to integrate some creative arts approaches with my younger clients including play therapy and art therapy, as I believe this allows a deeper level of understanding to unfold.
I believe counselling should be accessible to everyone and therefore I offer low cost spaces for students and for clients on a low income or retired. Please just ask.
If you feel we would work well together please call me on 07948 2626 77 to book an appointment or send me an email. I have daytime and evening appointments available.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Telephone counselling can be offered as an additional avenue of support between face to face counselling sessions or may focus solely on conducting the counselling over the phone.
It offers the same level of support and confidentiality as that of meeting face to face with a counsellor but means that you are able to receive support from the comfort of your own home.
