About me

As an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist, I listen without judgement in a confidential, honest environment. I work with individuals and couples on Relationship Issues, Anger Management, Anxiety, Depression, Abuse and violence, Sex and Sexuality, Sexual Abuse, Identity Issues, Bereavement and Loss, Addictive Behaviour, Low Self-Esteem, Work Related Issues and Personal Growth, to name some of the areas I have experience of.

I take an integrative approach, making use of a number of therapeutic models and techniques, including CBT, suited to your individual needs. I began my career as a counsellor over 15 years ago. To date, I have gained substantial experience in providing successful therapies in different counselling settings on a long and short-term basis; with a wide range of life problems and mental health issues in my private practice and the NHS. I practice privately in Upper Tooting SW17 and Deptford SE8.  Both locations are close to underground, overground and bus routes. Both locations have disabled/wheelchair access and have metered car parking nearby.
If we arrange an initial consultation, you can discuss your concerns in confidence and decide if you feel comfortable in working with me. This also gives me the opportunity to find out more about you and assess your therapeutic needs. Having the professional, emotional support you need can help you to explore your difficulties from different perspectives, access more inner resources, providing new ways to manage and move forward.

As a qualified supervisor, I also provide counselling supervision to trainee and qualified therapists individually and in groups.

As an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, (BACP) I am fully committed to working within their code of ethics. I am also committed to ongoing professional and personal Development

Taking the first step towards counselling can be daunting, especially if you've never done it before. If you have any questions, please contact me by email in the first instance:

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

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.

Both practice locations are fully accessible for disabled/wheelchair users.
