About me

Welcome. I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist working with adults and adolescents. If you are looking for a treatment designed to fit your unique needs, and for a space where you can heal and grow, then please read on and perhaps visit my website, for further information.

I offer short, goal-oriented counselling and longer term psychological therapy for a wide range of difficulties, such as stress, anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, relationship difficulties, perinatal and parenting issues, physical illness, bereavement and trauma. I also work with clients feeling somehow 'stuck', joyless, and who wish to make sense of a stage in their life marked by confusion and a lack of purpose.

Experienced in a range of therapy models I use an integrative approach, drawing on humanistic, cognitive-behavioural and mindfulness therapies to create a bespoke treatment for each of my clients. I also use knowledge drawn from a solid psychological evidence base, developed through training to doctoral level. This enables me to work in ways that have proven effective in relieving suffering and promoting emotional well-being.

Perhaps most importantly, my clients have described me as warm and genuine. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is essential to achieving lasting change, and I place respect, understanding and acceptance at the very heart of my clinical practice. This makes the therapeutic hour a safe space, where my clients can think, feel, or simply 'be' in new and freeing ways.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology from City University and a Master of Science in Child Development from UCL's Institute of Education. I am chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I have practiced in a variety of clinical settings, including a GP surgery, a university counselling service, a private oncology clinic and several specialised NHS services.

In addition to my counselling psychology practice, I work as a lecturer and research supervisor in City University's Department of Psychology.
