About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or uncertain? Imagine setting off on a journey where you are the captain, and I am your trusted navigator. As an Integrative Counsellor & Coach, I specialise in blending Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Coaching to help you overcome challenges, understand your surroundings and yourself, and uncover your true potential.

Every individual brings something special and valuable to the world. With deep compassion and empathy, I celebrate your uniqueness. I believe in the power of each person’s story and am here to walk beside you, honouring your experiences and strengths.

Together, we will use the Personal Consultancy framework, integrating various therapeutic and coaching approaches tailored just for you. This ensures a structured, yet flexible, path to self-discovery and positive change. Our sessions will be a space where creativity and empathy come together to find personal, unique solutions that lead to lasting transformation.

Our work together is like a journey of exploration. You hold the compass, and I hold the map. We navigate this path as equals, exploring and understanding your inner world. My role is to support and guide you with empathy and compassion, recognising that you are the expert in your own life.

I bring a wealth of knowledge in various therapeutic and coaching approaches, including:

Coaching: Positive Coaching, Dexter & Dexter, NLP, Therapeutic Coaching, Tailored Techniques

My Story

Just like you, I embarked on a journey to take up therapy, feeling overwhelmed and like I no longer knew myself. It’s with this experience I fully understand how you could be feeling in taking the first steps in reaching out for support. It takes a great deal courage to ask for support. 

Before becoming a counsellor and coach, I led a Software Engineering department, coaching leaders and strategising self-development pathways. 

with my hands-on experience in addiction recovery and relapse prevention as a volunteer at CGL Bromley, and leading academic research into effective therapy and coaching with UK universities and the BACP, further enhances my ability to support you.

Let’s explore your potential together, expand your perspectives, and ignite positive change to embark on a journey towards a happier, more fulfilling life. With compassion and empathy, I’m here to guide you every step of the way.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
