I am a qualified counsellor with ten years counselling experience working with children and young people. I am committed to my work with children and young people, helping to support them to express their thoughts and feelings; to help build up their resilience, emotional well-being and good mental health. This is essential for all to enable them to grow emotionally, academically and socially. I do not to give advice I am there to give support to help make positive decisions and changes.
It is essential when working with children and young people to think systemically, to be aware of the other relationships in the person’s life and how these can be affected when a child or young person is experiencing emotional difficulties. With therapeutic support in a safe and understanding environment, children and young people will be in a better place to develop a good relationship with themselves and others.
I use an integrative approach based on being child and psychodynamic. I like a person centred approach and feel that core conditions of empathy, unconditional positive regard, being non-judgmental and respect are an important base to any human relationship - where there is a relationship – changes can be made.
Sessions depending on age are based on play, art and/or talking therapy. Each session is mainly led by the child or young person in whichever medium they feel comfortable with. Sessions can be time-limited i.e a number of planned sessions (the maximum of 6 sessions is recommended) or open ended.
Areas I work with are:
- domestic violence
- family issues
- difficulties in relationships
- self harm
- other child/ adolescent related issues
I have previously worked with The Place2Be as an Assistant School Project Manager and counsellor. I have volunteered for various organisations. I have volunteered as a bereavement counsellor and a therapist for a domestic intervention programme.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
I use an integrative, psychodynamic, person centred approach and feel that core conditions of empathy, respect, unconditional positive regard and being non-judgmental are an important base to any human relationship.
I believe we all need a space to be able to reflect, a space to feel accepted, understood and supported. This will hopefully enable you to gain a deeper awareness into making positive changes and/ or offer you an alternative perspective on challenging life situations.

Training, qualifications & experience
As well as my private practice, I currently work for a community art project, providing a therapeutic space in West London. I can also visit children and young people at their school and/or family centres to be able to provide one-to-one counselling sessions.
I have previously worked as an Assistant School Project Manager/ counsellor with a children's charity, working alongside the School Project Manager to provide a school counselling service. During that time I have seen how I can contribute to an improvement in the lives of those with whom I worked with.
I did volunteer work with a bereavement service for three years and a domestic violence intervention programme, for one year. This experience gave me invaluable training and experience to go on to manage and develop my own private practice.
