About me

I am an insightful, intuitive and naturally empathic qualified integrative counsellor who has a strong passion to support my clients to begin to heal trauma, raise self-awareness and self-esteem, create healthier behaviours/thinking patterns and make the necessary changes needed to live a full life.

For me, the most important part of therapy is creating a warm and trusting environment where individuals can feel safe to talk and feel heard and understood as I fully understand that it can sometimes be difficult to talk to friends and family about sensitive topics for many different reasons.

My role is not to give advice or tell individuals how to live their lives, but to empower my clients to come to their own conclusions when deciding what changes they’d like to make and how. One of my core beliefs is that it’s mainly relationships that cause the most pain and suffering but it’s also through supportive relationships that the most powerful healing can be experienced.

I can offer short term or long term face to face, online or telephone sessions and am based in the borough of Bromley and South East London.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have knowledge and many years experience of working with adults of all ages who are suffering with co-dependency and addiction to alcohol and/or drugs with other cross addiction issues such as food, shopping or gambling etc. I also have many years experience of working with mental health and emotional distress such as depression and anxiety, loss and bereavement, childhood trauma and abuse, rejection and abandonment, guilt and shame, relationship and boundary issues and the various different types of stress that impact everyday lives.

Member organisations


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.
