About me

You want something to change, feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed?

I specialise in dealing with relationships issues and dealing with anxiety and I have been a part of the healing and growth journey for clients who were feeling stuck, depressed, suicidal and hopeless, clients who had traumatic experiences and who managed with the help of therapy to change their lives around. I want to help you to do the same.

The reason I trained in and can offer an unique mix of psychological therapies is to have multiple tools to help me adapt to each client needs and personality to help them with a wide range of emotional issues. With over 8 years of training and experience in holistic counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and EFT in Wimbledon & Blackfriars, I have demonstrated high standards of knowledge, experience and development and became fully accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I believe that a non-judgemental, caring environment will facilitate natural ways of developing and using your own inner resources,  where you feel safe to explore your emotions, your thoughts and behaviours to bring about beneficial change. Life and work experiences have taught me to see people as individuals, each having different needs and experiences.

I have extensive experience working with anxiety, relationship issues, depression, illness and chronic pain, anger as well as experience working with people with disabilities.
