About me

I'm a qualified, accredited counsellor offering open-ended therapy. Counselling is a confidential relationship for the purpose of discussing problems in your life.

What happens during the counselling process?

We’ll meet and discuss our expectations of each other and the process. We’ll discuss boundaries around the relationship e.g. contact, confidentiality, payment. After that, I’ll follow your lead. You decide what we’re going to talk about. I’ll ask questions and make observations about the difficulties you describe. I might offer alternative viewpoints to help you explore them further. We’ll assess your progress as the relationship develops.

How I work

I provide an integrative therapy which is based around the humanistic models and transference issues. This means I pay particular attention to our relationship and its development as well as the content of our discussions. If you’re not familiar with these terms, it won’t be a problem. I share as much of the process as I can when it is appropriate during the sessions.

I offer open-ended counselling. There is no set number of sessions. We continue to work as long as you need the support.

Credit for my work

In 2017, I got a mention in the Evening Standard for my work with a student experiencing PTSD. The article is featured below in the Photos & Videos section.
