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, insomnia, low self-confidence, anger and aggression, depression, anxiety, behavioural addictions, work-related problems, relationship difficulties, perinatal and parenting issues, physical illness, bereavement and self-harm. 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 trustworthy. 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 worked as a counsellor in a variety of clinical settings, including a GP surgery, a university counselling service, two schools, 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.

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.
