About me

Are work, family or other relationships troubling you? Perhaps something that happened long ago has suddenly started to bother you, or you are struggling to cope with a recent change in your life? You might be feeling overwhelmed, or unable to see the woods for the trees, suffering with symptoms like anxiety, depression, phobias or panic attacks?

I work collaboratively with people when they're feeling vulnerable, helping them with difficult emotional experiences. Whether you want to feel like your 'old self', find relief from symptoms, or develop new self belief, I can work with you to help you achieve this.

Training, qualifications & experience

I had counselling myself when I was in my 30’s, when I was working in a corporate career and it helped me so much that it inspired me to retrain as a therapist; I have been practising since 2013.

MSc Integrative Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute, accredited by Middlesex University

Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling, Metanoia Institute

I am a Registered Member of UKCP and BACP.

Free telephone consultation: I don’t charge for an initial telephone consultation as this can help you decide how you feel about working with me.
