About me

I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based in South East London. I work with individuals and groups in a holistic, person centred way as an accredited member of the National Counselling Society. I have extensive experience as a mental health professional working in a variety of NHS settings with people who have diverse mental health challenges.
