About me

Feeling life is a mess? Overwhelmed by anxiety? Struggling to cope? Paralysed by decision making? Frustrated with those around you? Consumed by grief or loneliness?  Lost, confused, sad or desperate? These are just some of the reasons why people come for therapy.

My starting point as a therapist is always you and your needs. Whether you are looking for focussed and supportive counselling or longer term psychotherapy, I can offer you a safe space in which to explore and work though the issues you are facing.

I am an experienced, integrative practitioner offering counselling and psychotherapy to individual adults. I have been working with clients in a variety of settings since 1998. These include GP surgeries, longer term counselling in the voluntary sector, a bereavement service, acute and specialist hospital settings, and private practice since 2002. I have been a Clinical Supervisor since 2005 and am also the Manager of Balham Community Counselling Service. 

My base in New Malden is easily accessible for both South West London and Surrey. There is free parking as well as being just a few minutes from bus routes (131, 213, 512) and British Rail.

I can offer concessionary rates for trainees.

I am accredited by the British Psychological Society as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy .

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified
