About me

If life is getting on top of you, I can help you see things differently. Sometimes the challenges of life can be overwhelming. Emotional issues, in particular, can be painful and confusing. During psychotherapy sessions, we can work together to make these overwhelming issues become more manageable.

My Psychotherapy sessions can address:

- Anxiety, stress and depression
- Difficulties around relationships
- Problems in the workplace
- Low self esteem/lack of confidence
- Difficulties regarding sexuality
-Trauma resulting from abuse
- Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
- Addiction
- Loss and bereavement
- Emotional pain caused by illness
- Isolation and alienation
- Panic attacks
- anger and aggression

My specialties are:

- Relationship issues
- Stress, anxiety and panic attacks
- Bereavement and loss
- Depression
- Feelings of isolation due to relocation to a different cultural background

Every client has a different set of problems and a unique story to tell. I invite you to share yours in a place completely free of judgement, where you can go at your own pace. Working together, we can discuss your thoughts and feelings on a regular basis.

My rate is £80 (concessions available). I see clients for short-term focused work and for longer-term open-ended work, depending on your needs.

I am happy to answer any questions you have, and to help you determine if Psychotherapy is right for you.

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.
