About me

When life events feel overwhelming, thinking about your challenges with an experienced practitioner can provide a safe and nurturing environment within which to consider the best path forward and achieve greater feelings of wellbeing and clarity. I offer a confidential counselling and psychotherapy service based in West and Central London and I aim to work collaboratively with my clients to develop a treatment plan which is tailored to best suit their needs.

I prioritise the therapeutic relationship and approach each individual in a respectful manner. I have experience of working in long-term and short-term frameworks with clients of varying ages and genders. I am an integrative practitioner, trained to work in a variety of modalities including: humanistic and Person-Centered Therapy (PCT); Psychodynamic approaches; and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); as well as Mindfulness and compassion-based work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Master of Science with Distinction in Psychology from the University of Westminster and am in the final year of my Doctoral studies as a Counselling Psychologist in Training at City, University of London. I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a member of the BPS Division of Counselling Psychology (DCoP). I am also a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have worked in a variety of NHS and charity settings, including within Clinical Health Psychology at The Whittington Hospital - an NHS District General and Teaching Hospital affiliated to University College London (UCL) - where I also lectured to the fourth year medical students. I have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist for the mental health charity Mind, The Duchess of Cambridge’s schools charity, Place2Be, and within a counselling service supporting carers.

I originally graduated from the University of Bristol with a BA (Hons) degree and a Master of Arts in English Literature. I then trained as an Editor and Journalist and worked for the BBC before retraining in psychology.
