I run a Counselling and Psychotherapy service in the South West London/Surrey Borders.
I offer face to face and online counselling to young people and adults looking to make changes in their lives and enhance their psychological wellbeing and development.
I tailor my work to meet the individual needs of my clients, integrating a combination of Psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural techniques amongst others.
I will work alongside you, helping you to explore your feelings in a safe and confidential setting, at a pace you choose.
My specialist areas are anxiety, panic disorder, compulsive behaviours, depression, bereavement, attachment, relationships and addiction.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
