About me

I am an experienced and highly qualified BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with an established practice in Eltham, SE9.

I am recognised by AXA, Aviva and Vitality private health insurers.

We have all, at one time or another struggled to cope or make sense of our lives and relationships. This can leave us feeling anxious, frustrated and depressed.

You may talk about anything with me - I am not here to judge you and our time together is confidential.


  • Please call or email to arrange an initial meeting.
  • In this meeting we will discuss how counselling can help you and the issues you wish to address.
  • If you are comfortable we agree a time and day for further sessions.

The general aim of counselling is to help you through whatever emotional and psychological problems you are struggling with. These could be issues from your past which affect the quality of your life and relationships in the present.  Or perhaps something has happened - a death, redundancy, divorce - and you are finding it difficult to cope or make sense of how you are feeling. 

I will offer you a safe space where we can explore your thoughts and feelings together. This exploration will allow you an insight and understanding into who you really are and why you behave as you do. This can afford you an opportunity to move your life on in a more positive, healthier way.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.
