About me

Counselling can help you to emerge from times of anxiety, depression and mental stress as a stronger version of yourself.  The relationship between therapist and client is an important factor in facilitating change and I offer a warm, inclusive, non-judgmental and empathetic environment. My aim is to help you achieve a higher level of understanding in yourself and work through any difficulties that you may be currently facing.

Anxiety, stress, depression and just generally feeling sad or low are everyday factors in life and I believe that therapy can help to manage and reduce the associated emotional pain and mental suffering.

Based in London and Hertford, I offer a non-judgemental and supportive environment to help you work through any form of problem or issue you may be currently facing.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at Regents University in London and have received my Post Graduate Diploma and Foundation certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling.

I have been trained in an integrative way which means I have experience of each of the main modalities of psychotherapy. My approach in the way I choose to work is primarily in an existential way. Aiming to help you explore your lived experience, the choices you make in life and the struggles you may be facing.

Given the stressful and difficult times we are currently experiencing, it would be hard not to be concerned or worried about what it means for ourselves and our loved ones. If you are struggling with stress, anxiety or isolation in the current climate I am able to offer telephone or online sessions. These can be one off sessions, short term or longer term ongoing sessions - please contact me if you would like more details.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
