About me

At this difficult time, online counselling might be an answer to getting support. I am experienced in using the phone and online video (zoom or skype) to offer therapy and supervision.

I am an integrative psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor and have been practising since 2003.

I have experience of working in private practice, the NHS and for the voluntary sector as a psychotherapist and supervisor.

I have worked in the voluntary sector for many years in a variety of roles, most recently as Senior Psychotherapist for Respond and previously as Director of the Maya Centre, which is a counselling centre for women in Islington.

I offer counselling, psychotherapy and supervision in Suffolk (in Wenhaston and Woodbridge (monday pm only). I provide supervision in London (Islington). I can also provide Skype or phone sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis Counselling from Re-Vision Centre for Integrative Psychosynthesis (2004) and a Diploma in Psychotherapy (2008) also from Re-Vision. I also have a Supervision Diploma from Re-Vision (2014).

I have gained my experience in a variety of settings including my own private practice and various voluntary organisations. I used to work in the NHS and until 2014 worked at Respond as a senior psychotherapist for people with learning disabilities.

I provide supervision to other counsellors and psychotherapists.

I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and adhere to their framework of ethics and professional conduct.

I have worked with people from a wide range of backgrounds and who have come to therapy with very varied problems and issues. I have particular experience in working with eating disorders and addictions and people who have been sexually abused.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

The centre I work from in Woodbridge is wheelchair accessible, but my home practice has a step leading into my consulting room with a narrow door. In London I work from the 2nd floor of a building without a lift.
