About me

I have a vast and varied background in Mental Health with more than nine years experience. I have proven competencies in dealing with people of all ages and a wide variety of life challenges such as anxiety, depression and relationship issues.

I am available weekdays, evenings & Saturdays

How I Work
I do not work from a rigid template, or use just one specific approach to counselling. People are all individuals so I tailor my approach and sessions to suit you and your needs.

The three main approaches I use are:

  • Rational-Emotive behaviour Therapy (REBT) / Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Person Centred Counselling
  • Existential Counselling

You can find further information about each of these on my website

Diversity Sensitive Therapy

I aim to be sensitive to the class, gender, sexual orientation, cultural and ethnic origins of individuals. Due to the amount of different cultures that exist in our society it would be impossible for me to say I have detailed knowledge of them all, I therefore base my Diversity Sensitive Therapy on the following framework:

  • Being aware of the links between the problems a person may face and their social context.
  • Valuing the idea that there is not one single idea of ‘ normal ’ that applies to all people, situations and cultures.
  • Acknowledgement of the differences between individualistic and collectivist cultures.
  • Taking into consideration the reality of racism, marginalisation and other forms of discrimination and how if at all these issues may have impacted the client’s life.
  • The importance of support structures in the client’s community, e.g. traditional healing methods, kinship bonds or spiritual philosophies.
  • Being attune to the concept of gender roles in the client’s culture.
  • The necessity of appreciating the role of history when making sense of the client’s current experiences.
  • Being sensitive to the use of language, be that of the spoken word and vocabulary or forms of non-verbal communication like body language.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a higher professional Diploma in Counselling which I obtained in 2007 when I was trained in person centred and existential counselling. In 2012 I obtained a MSc in Rational-Emotive Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from Goldsmiths University I have also had training in a number of areas related to counselling as part of my ongoing professional development e.g. Life Coaching, Self-Harm, Gender & Sexuality, Mindfulness and Well being.

I have worked at two prisons and a mental health charity in the capacity of counsellor and psychotherapist and have more than 7 years experience of delivering talking therapy.
