I am a fully qualified and highly experienced psychological therapist / counsellor based in Northwood, with over twenty years experience working with both adults and young people, families and individuals. I also work as a school counsellor where I hold clinics for students, run workshops, offer mindfulness training and group work.
I offer an opportunity to talk through and share your concerns in a non-judgemental empathetic manner and help you obtain a deeper understanding of yourself and make more informed positive life choices. It is a safe place to explore and find resolutions and resilience to some of the difficulties that one has to navigate during their lives. My aim is for clients to build an emotional tool box and inner strength in order to deal with day to day problems.
I have experience in working with individuals, couples and families impacted by such difficulties as:
- Separation & Divorce

- Suicidal Ideation
- Self Harm

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
