About me

I will not tell you what to do, but I will be honest and intuit what deeper insecurities are lurking beneath your words. If you’re wanting to change your life, be heard, be seen and hear yourself over time answer some very painful questions that I’ll pose, then please follow whether you feel I may be the best therapist for you right now. I never invade in your journey but gently guide, empower you to feel the courage and understand your pain in a completely different way. Rather than seeing your anxiety, addictions, relationship issues and sadness as “ugly/bad parts” they are merely you in reverse, the shadow of you, and together we will shine a light on this part that lays in a dark space within, wanting to emerge as the beautiful, peaceful and powerful you. Let’s do this together, with love and guidance.

"What if you truly approach your life from the perspective that life is happening for you? A failed relationship, a miserable job, an unsuccessful diet, the challenges, the storms…what if you examined all of the crap that has happened “to” you and chose to see where it all has led you—to see where it is leading you? What if you realised there was a purpose for every circumstance of struggle, challenge, and difficulty? Could you stop and appreciate these moments of darkness and realise they are necessary to guide you to the light in your life? You have the power to change your focus, to change your perspective, to change your life. Through acceptance and presence, you can choose to stop waiting for life to happen—choose to make it happen. Instead of waiting for a change, create a change. Every experience is important and necessary, even the challenges. They've taught you, they've carried you forward, they've nudged you back to your true path, they've expanded your consciousness. All that has come before and all that is yet to come exquisitely nourishes the evolution of your being. Listen to your life. Flow in acceptance. Allow life to happen for you. Be love."

My previous experience as a Clinical Director for a counselling centre in the heart of London as well as the Counselling Coordinator for The Awareness Centre, sparked the confidence to work in the Public Sector, pioneering the need for diversity and supported my experience within the NHS; as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor with IAPT. I'm now acutely aware of the low morale clients can experience when needing therapy. 

I'm currently working remotely via Zoom.

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.

I'm an experienced online practitioner currently working remotely via Zoom, Facetime, Skype and Whatsapp.
