About me

We all have the capacity to grow, repair, find balance and build resilience. Sometimes we just need a little help on the journey.

As an integrative practitioner, I draw on multiple therapy models aiming to create a safe, non-judgmental and highly personalised way of working. I aim to provide a space that encourages authenticity, openness and personal growth.

I offer face to face session in Clapham, London Bridge and Bank as well as Zoom/ Phone sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working with a range of difficulties, including low mood and depression, self-esteem, stress, anxiety, traumatic events, loss, anger, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, relationships, sexuality, and issues around lack of meaning and fulfilment.

I welcome adult clients from all backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, identities, religions, disabilities, sexualities and gender.

I hold an Advanced Diploma in humanistic integrative counselling and am registered with the BACP.

Languages: English and German.

Member organisations


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.
