About me

When we reach a time in our lives when things feel out of control and scary, we sometimes need a safe space to explore how we are feeling.

Through developing a safe and trusting working alliance with clients I enable them to explore their difficulties and move towards a more healthy and fulfilling way of coping and living.

I am an experienced humanistic counsellor with 11 years of clinical experience.

Since 2005 I have worked for Cruse Bereavement Care as an accredited bereavement counsellor and supervisor specialising, in particular, in the area of losing a child through stillbirth and miscarriage.

In my private practice I have extensive experience working with a broad range of issues. I am especially experienced in working with anxiety, depression, bereavement and eating disorders.

I would describe myself as a warm, honest and intuitive person and practitioner who is both conscientious and passionate about my work with people.

My own personal life experiences have influenced and encouraged me to pursue my career in counselling and enable me to understand and empathise on a deep and genuine level.

Counselling South London is a small private practice where myself and colleague Phil Clarkstone provide counselling and psychotherapy. We have many years of extensive experience and are dedicated and committed to our practice.
