About me

At different points in our lives we might feel lost and unsure what to do next. We might feel anxious or sad, perhaps stuck in ways of being that are affecting our relationships, work, or study. Therapy can help us understand ourselves better and heal from past pain and disappointments. Through this we may find contentment, direction, and self-acceptance.

As a therapist I am creative, compassionate, and curious. I offer a warm, safe, non-judgemental space in which to explore what is happening for you. Together we will focus on your emotions and ways of thinking to help you work through your individual experiences. This can help a deeper personal understanding to emerge that can support you to make changes in your life.

I draw on a wide range of approaches to tailor the therapy to who you are and what you want to explore. Most importantly, at the heart of my practice is a belief that change is possible for each of us; that we can all move from just surviving to thriving.

Therapy is personal and can be experienced differently by each of us. If you feel unsure whether it will be right for you, I offer an initial session for us to both see if we might work well together. Please get in touch to find out more.

Both my East London and North West London practices are easily accessible by public transport.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BACP accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre, one of Europe’s leading Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy training institutes.

Alongside my private practice I am a Counsellor at the Maya Centre and the Woman’s Trust, specialising in domestic abuse, childhood neglect, and abuse-based trauma.

I also have over 25 years of experience of working in public policy and have first-hand knowledge of the stress and anxiety that working in fast paced, competitive work environments can bring.

Please get in touch if you would like an initial free phone conversation for us to find out more about each other.

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.

Further information

It can feel daunting to take the first step in seeing a therapist and I keep this as simple as possible. Once you get in touch by either phone or email I will contact you to set up a free phone session in which we can talk about what you hope to get out of counselling. You will have the opportunity to ask me any questions you have. If you are happy to continue, I will set up a second session after which we will see each other weekly.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
