About me

Based in Notting Hill, I am a qualified counsellor, working short/long-term with adults and couples. I hold a qualification in Transactional Analysis counselling and work from an integrative and holistic approach.

Having worked in counselling placements and in private practice, I have experience working with issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, confidence and self-esteem, relationship issues, eating-related issues, existential issues, male stereotyping and hold a keen interest working with individuals experiencing body image problems and individuals from the LGBT+ community. 

You may be experiencing some or all issues above. No situation is too small if causing you pain. I offer counselling from an approachable and non-judgemental space, we will work at your pace to better understand your experiences, paying attention to areas keeping you stuck or behaviours holding you back. Together we shall develop new and refreshed perspectives, providing you with the tools required to lead a more fulfilling life.

I offer a 15 min free phone consultation to asses your situation and enabling you to gauge whether you would like to proceed further.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
