About me

I work with people seeking help with depression, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, grief, or the effects of a recent or historic trauma. I also work with people who find the same things keep happening, such as certain behaviours, recurring thoughts and feelings, disrupted sleep or repeated difficulties in relationships. These are all things which can be worked through in psychotherapy.

I have a wide range of experience that covers private practice, charities and the NHS. I began clinical work at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Hospital in London, where I completed a Masters in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and later in the WPF clinic where I concluded my training. At Lewisham Hospital I worked with people with diagnosed mental health disorders, running group therapy sessions on the wards. I currently work at Compass Counselling Service in Hampshire, and see clients in private practice.I work with adults of all ages and backgrounds, either face to face or remotely on Zoom.

The best thing to do is send me an email, and then start with a phone call. We can briefly discuss what has been going on and what you are wanting from therapy, and then think about a suitable time to meet for an initial consultation.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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 work at The Coastal Practice in Bournemouth, which has wheel chair access.
