About me

I am an Integrative Practitioner, counselling adults, couples, and young people (over age 11) experiencing a wide range of difficulties, including Grief, Trauma, Depression, Anxiety and Relationship Conflicts. The work may be short or long term depending upon the needs of the client. My approach is integrative and holistic, and I consider the whole person: mental, emotional and physical. I specialise in the issues surrounding separation and divorce, in loss and change, and in feeling better about being in the world.

Training, qualifications & experience

I received my MA with Merit in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from Roehampton University, and I am an Accredited Mediator through Regent's University. I am a BACP Registered practitioner. I have also had special training in bereavement counselling.

Prior to my work in Psychotherapy I received a BA in International Relations from Brown University in the United States. I worked internationally as a television news producer, then as a book editor. I am a mother.

Member organisations


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.
