About me

My vision is to empower clients and help them achieve inner peace.

I am a qualified Croydon psychotherapist and counsellor, who adheres to the BACP ethical framework. I have a particular interest in issues of racism and relational patterns in adults who have experienced trauma.

Together, we can explore past life events to gain a better understanding of what might have gone wrong. I can help you implement strategies and techniques in your day- to-day life in order to: 

  • enhance your quality of life;
  • rid yourself of maladaptive behaviours and/or negative thinking patterns;
  • ameliorate your communication skills;
  • ensure that you value your needs and/or meet your partner's;
  • mend your relationship after an affair;
  • navigate conflict in a relationship.

In a safe and non-judgmental environment, we can discuss and explore issues which may be hindering your happiness.

I recognise the difficulty of identifying and expressing difficult emotions in a foreign language, hence my willingness to provide therapy in Italian or French if necessary.

Please call me for an appointment today on 07590672384, or click here to send me an email.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Master's in Psychotherapy and Counselling from the University of Leeds and a Certificate in Couples Counselling. Working for the NHS has given me to the opportunity to hone my counselling skills in the areas below.

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.
