If you are looking for support, perhaps I can help. I am warm, supportive and confidential and will listen without judging. I will work with you to process difficult or painful thoughts and feelings, and to identify and draw on your inner resources to live a fuller, more satisfying life.
I am an integrative Counsellor psychotherapist. This means I am trained to integrate a range of therapeutic approaches to best suit my clients’ needs. I use different tools and approaches to find the best fit for you. This could include:
- supporting you to discover your potential and ability to make the right choices
- exploring your past and how this affects you today
- helping you to identify patterns in your thoughts and behaviours and find ways to change them
It's important you are comfortable with your therapist before you make a commitment. If you would like to explore whether we could work together why not contact me to arrange an initial assessment session. This allows you to get a sense of what it's like to be in therapy with me and for me to decide if I am right for you.
How I deliver therapy:
Short-term face-to-face work, Long-term face-to-face work, Online counselling, Telephone counselling, Time-limited.
Training, qualifications & experience

I also work for a leading EAP provider providing assessments, face to face and telephone counselling. I have also worked with IAPT NHS Clients in a Lambeth Doctors surgery.
I also hold an up to date Enhanced DBS certificate.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
