About me

Therapy offers you a path towards positive change and deeper understanding. I offer a collaborative approach where we can explore the ways you can understand the part you play in your situation and how you can regain control of your life and develop strategies to creatively transform your life for the better. 

I offer a wide range of services, both individual and couples counselling (in-person or online). Mine is a Gestalt therapeutic approach which means we will work in the here and now and focus on how the past may be impacting you presently. I also offer life coaching and specialise in helping people overcome public performance anxiety.

People tell me I have a warm, kind and calming presence and that my compassion for others comes across as a big part of who I am. I’ll accept you as you are and give you the time and space to talk about your situation. I’m fascinated to get a sense of what it’s like to see the world as you do, without judgment but offering empathy and understanding.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and certified Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming. In my private work with clients, I have experience dealing with a wide range of issues. I have also had experience in placement within the NHS as an Honorary Assistant Psychologist within the Priory group of hospitals.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals both in-person and online. I commonly work with clients who suffer from anxiety or depression, but I have experience working with clients suffering from trauma, OCD, panic attacks, phobias, low moods and feelings of loneliness and low self-esteem. I also work with people who are grieving a loss, who need help with a work or personal problem, who are looking for career growth or personal development, or who are currently experiencing relationship difficulties or family conflicts. Whatever your background, age, gender, orientation or experience, I'd be glad to work with you.

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

I currently work in Marlow on Mondays and Tuesdays. I work in London from my practice on Wednesday afternoons and I'm looking to extend this to a full day in due course.

Further information

I offer in-person and online Counselling, Psychotherapy and life coaching both central London and in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. I also provide Group Therapy, Workshops and give free talks on aspects of mental health and wellbeing. I believe therapy should be available to everybody and everybody can benefit from therapy. By reconnecting with yourself and with others, the benefits of therapy can extend far beyond the therapy room. 

My face-to-face practice covers the following areas: London (Bond street, Oxford street), Marlow, Bourne End, Cookham, Beaconsfield, High Wycombe.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I have accessibility in my Marlow practice. Parking is available close to the main entrance which has wheelchair access. Please feel free to get in touch and discuss this further.
