About me

I offer a confidential space for clients'  who are taking the time to face issues that may seem insurmountable or difficult. If you are experiencing anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, or feelings of low self esteem; taking the 'space and time' to speak with a qualified therapist can help facilitate a way forward.

I am a registered and accredited
psychological practitioner, working privately in South Woodford, offering individual therapy for adult clients.
Bupa/AXA PPP & Aviva recognised therapist.

My work is informed by my former experience working within the NHS and in the voluntary sector for a National Bereavement organisation.  This has given me opportunity to work with a diverse client group and a wide range of issues for over a eighteen year period. If you would like further information, please access my website at

During the initial meeting,  you will have the time to speak about your concerns.  This meeting is for 50 minutes and will give you an opportunity to see if you will be comfortable with me as your therapist and to gain some focus for the way forward.

My work as a Humanistic Integrative therapist means that I draw on a range of therapeutic models to respond effectively to clients'. My first degree in Psychology led onto my training in Psychological Counselling at City University in 1997. I have a specialist qualification in Bereavement counselling and Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. Additionally, CBT cert' from Bristol University (UWE)
