About me

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by life’s many challenges? Perhaps you’re in a dilemma, finding it hard to make a decision. You may be feeling anxious or stressed, unable to cope. You may have gone through a life-changing experience, such as bereavement, disability or other loss. Or are the demands of work so unrelenting, you cannot switch off and long for a work-life balance?

How Counselling Therapy can help

It can be very beneficial to talking to a counsellor, someone who listens to you without judging, who will help you express your feelings and discover your own answers.

A highly experienced and qualified therapist, I am based both in Enfield (North London) and London Bridge/Borough (close to the City of London). I work with both individuals and couples.

I offer a safe, confidential environment where you can explore at your own pace whatever is troubling you. My approach to counselling therapy is warm and welcoming, supportive and professional. I provide a space where you can talk, reflect and gain insights that can have a real, positive impact on your life.

Over the years I have worked with clients, both individuals and couples, on issues such as:

  • Anxiety and depression, and loss of confidence
  • Bereavement and loss, and traumatic experiences
  • Couples, partner, marriage difficulties (intimacy, infidelity, jealousy)
  • Living with illness or disability (yours or someone you love)
  • Work-related stress (fast pace of change, use of technology, long/unsocial hours)

Please do visit my website where you will find much more about the way I work and how counselling therapy can help whether in Enfield or London Bridge.
