About me

I know how hard it can be to reach out when you need help. A problem can become so large that it takes over most of your life. It can be something from the past or a current situation that you can't move beyond. Whether it is depression, anxiety, loss, abuse, trauma, bereavement, stress or a relationship breaking down, you feel stuck and overwhelmed. Maybe you simply know that something needs to change, but don’t know how to make that happen.

I can help.  I am an experienced, qualified, integrative counsellor and psychotherapist  which means that I am flexible and trained in a number of different approaches. I will work with you however you feel and with whatever you bring, together developing the knowledge and insight  that enables change. I don't expect you to fit the therapy; I expect the therapy to fit you and will develop an intervention based upon your specific needs and wishes.

I offer a confidential service in a discreet and comfortable location where you can be yourself, secure in the knowledge that you will be supported, challenged at times, understood, but not judged.

I work with adults, adolescents and couples.

I am a counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. When I finished my Post Graduate/Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, I became an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Afterwards I completed a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of East London and later qualified as a clinical supervisor.

I have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist for 17 years. During that time I have set up and managed a counselling service in a secondary school for staff, students and parents.  I have also worked with professionals in the City of London and for a bereavement charity. I supervise trainee counsellors at a leading counselling school as well as qualified counsellors and psychotherapists.  I founded Quartz Counselling psychotherapy and Training (QCPT), which is a private practice dedicated to high standards and innovative ways of working.
