About me

You want to live a life that feels significant, fueled by your values, that empower you and those you love.

But loss; in all its various forms can make this vision feel even more illusive. A mystery. Yet loss, also increases our drive to make our lives matter. To really wrestle with the hard stuff and step into the life we value.

Sometimes we don't know what we're feeling or what we think about our feelings. It's so confusing; yet we know its important to try make sense of these messages.

I am a creative and empathetic counsellor who will play detective with you. Examine the clues and messages together and journey with you to find purpose in the pain.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as an Integrative Counsellor at the Minster Centre; one of the leading Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling training institutions in Europe.  I have a Masters Degree in Social Development and a BA in International Development from the University of East Anglia.

At Crossroads Counselling service in Tower Hamlets in London,  I had the opportunity to provide support to people with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, retirement, unemployment, health concerns and depression. I supported women in Holloway Prison with child loss issues and have provided short term (12 weeks) therapy as part of Wandsworth Bereavement Service. I deeply value the creativity of play therapy and therefore have volunteered at CARIS Islington a service providing support for bereaved children.

I have over 10 years experience working in the charity sector with Humanitarian Aid Workers; debriefing them after critical incidents and providing support as they transition back to life in the UK.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
