About me

I am a professionally qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with experience in working with a range of presenting issues including depression and anxiety, anger issues, social anxiety, panic disorder, feeling sad, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, work stress, bullying, relationship problems, bereavement and unresolved childhood issues. I work with adults, couples and young people and I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy).

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.

I am trained as an integrative counsellor which can be seen as one of the most effective forms of counselling. It combines a variety of approaches to suit your individual needs including psychoanalysis, person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). My aim in working with you is to provide a warm and non-judgmental space where you can freely express and explore your thoughts and feelings, helping you to improve your awareness of yourself. I also like to work creatively, using methods to help clients communicate when words have become too difficult.

I hold a certificate in spiritual healing which serves to support personal growth and looks at working with stress management through breath work, creative visualisations, meditation, positive thought and colour therapy. I also run a weekly mindfulness group which can help to relieve stress, lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain and improve sleep.

My experience includes working for the NHS in a GP surgery counselling clients with a range of presenting issues including depression and anxiety, anger issues, relationship problems, affairs and betrayals and drug/alcohol addictions. I've also worked as a school counsellor in secondary schools across London counselling students struggling to cope with bullying, exam stress, self-harm, sexuality, friendship issues, identity issues and those on the autistic spectrum. I've worked as a volunteer counsellor at Sutton Counselling Service, Kids Company, The Awareness Centre and as a befriender for Crisis at Christmas. I receive ongoing supervision and am committed to my own professional development.

I believe counselling should be accessible to everyone and therefore I offer low cost spaces for students and for clients on a low income. 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

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.
