About me

I provide a safe and confidential space where you can talk about what is making you feel depressed or anxious. Coping with the loss of someone or something is often very difficult, and you may experience intense feelings of anger, sadness or regret. Some people want to understand or talk about difficult feelings rooted in their childhood, perhaps attempting to have better relationships with family members, a partner or friends. Some people want to explore issues regarding their sexuality.

In my approach, we explore your past and present relationships to make sense and understand your present difficulties. I specialise in the treatment of acute anxiety and depression. Central to my work is the understanding of the unconscious mind to facilitate awareness, help you understand yourself better and perhaps elicit change.

As part of my professional development, I have undertaken continuous personal psychotherapy, which allows me to empathise with your experience of coming for therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.

I have over five years’ experience in mental health within the public sector treating people who suffer from panic attacks and have a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Alongside my private practice I work in the charity sector at Waterloo Community Counselling in the South Bank, London.

In addition to the above, I have experience working with the LGBT community and people from diverse cultural backgrounds as well as being able to provide therapy in both English and Spanish.

Further information

Whether you are feeling depressed or anxious, empty or stuck and perhaps confused about your feelings or don’t know what your feelings are, counselling and psychotherapy can help you understand yourself and come to terms with recent changes in your life or longstanding issues.

Some of the issues I can help you with are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression and suicidal thoughts
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Sexual problems
  • Difficulties concentrating
  • Family difficulties
  • Stress
  • Panic Attacks


When we first make contact, we can arrange a brief conversation over the phone about why you are considering counselling and make an initial appointment.

The first session is a stand alone session with no obligation to continue. This session gives you the opportunity to check if I am the right person for you. If you decide to go forward, we then talk about options for a treatment plan. Sessions are normally on a weekly basis, on a day and time convenient for both of us.
