Are you experiencing feelings of depression, low self-esteem or suffering from feelings of anxiety, without fully understanding why? Perhaps you are having relationship difficulties or extreme feelings of anger, shame, guilt or loneliness may be affecting your daily life, keeping you stuck in an uncomfortable place.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor specialising in working with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, low self-esteem and anger management. My integrative training means I combine different approaches to my counselling work including psychoanalysis, person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I offer both short-term solution focused therapy (6-12 weeks) for those looking for a more goal-orientated approach as well as long-term (open-ended) therapy for those who wish to reflect at a deeper level.
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 understand that each client has their own unique set of experiences and I tailor my approach to suit those specific needs. Together we will work to develop a realistic plan to help you move forward and achieve the results you are looking for.
I've also worked as a school counsellor at a secondary school in London, 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.
My experience also includes working as a volunteer counsellor at Sutton Counselling Service, Kids Company, The Awareness Centre and as a befriender for Crisis at Christmas.
I believe counselling should be accessible to everyone and therefore I offer low cost spaces for those on low income. Please just ask.
If you feel we would work well together please contact me by email or phone and we can book an introductory session. During this first session you will be able to talk through your concerns and decide if I am the right counsellor for you. Please call me on 07948 2626 77 to book an appointment or send me an email.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Telephone counselling works in the same way as that of face to face counselling but is conducted over the telephone. It 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.
