About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor providing confidential counselling and coaching services. I work with individuals, couples, children and young people.

I offer support with resolving and improving psychological, emotional and life issues, some of which may stem from current or past experiences, relationships or trauma.

Through counselling, I offer an empathic, professional and confidential space to explore, gain insight and work through difficulties. This often leads to improved well-being, psychological health, relationships and self-awareness.

Coaching provides structure, professional guidance, support and challenge to achieve a goal or overcome a specific obstacle that might be holding you back in a particular area of life.

I offer crisis support (1-3 session) for sudden dilemmas, issues or conflicts. Crisis support is intended to provided an immediately, confidential and supportive space in which to process thoughts, feelings and consider options.

Short-term support (6+ sessions) for longer-standing difficulties such as anxiety, allowing for deeper reflection, time and processing.

Long-term support (12+ sessions) for in depth exploration and reflection, allowing for a greater level of insight, understanding and self awareness.

My consulting rooms are located in East Dulwich, SE22 and Sydenham, SE26.

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.
