About me

I am an experienced integrative counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor.  As such, I'm trained in a range of different therapeutic approaches and draw on a number of these in my work. I offer both short-term and long-term therapy, both face-to-face and online. Issues I frequently work with include anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, emotional dysregulation, ADHD, relationship, family and work-related difficulties including emotional abuse and childhood trauma, and adjustment to big life events or losses. Clients will often describe feeling anxious or panicky, overwhelmed, stuck, confused or numb, or may have a sense of lacking meaning and fulfillment in life. Others will present with longer term, more deep-rooted issues as a result of past trauma or difficult childhood experiences. My aim is to help each client explore what is troubling them and enable them to find a better way forward, working through the issues that are most important to them, without judgment or bias. My style is informal and collaborative, and therapy is tailored to each client's unique needs. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have 14 years  of counselling experience with individual clients aged 17 and above. I am also a counselling supervisor and have been working with trainee and qualified counsellors in this capacity for 5 years.  After completing a Level 3 certificate in counselling, I studied for an MA in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy at the University of Roehampton, qualifying with distinction in 2013. Since that time, my continuing professional development has included UKCP accredited post-graduate training in Relational Supervision, Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression, Schema Therapy, Attachment Based Therapy and EMDR, as well as short courses in couple therapy, trauma therapy and mindfulness. I am also a qualified tutor, and I teach and supervise trainee counsellors at a local further education college on a part-time basis. I offer supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors privately, in person or online, individually and in groups.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership

Further information

I subscribe to the DBS update service and have up-to-date enhanced clearance.

I was born and raised in the borough of Wandsworth, an ethnically and culturally diverse area of London. I am sensitive to issues of difference and I strongly support equality, diversity and inclusion. I have experience working with issues of religion, culture, ethnicity and sexuality and I have worked with clients from all walks of life, through all stages of life. I have a positive attitude to life and work, and I am committed to personal and professional development.

I am a naturally empathic and compassionate person and I believe that building strong therapeutic relationships with my clients is key to the success of our work together. I bring maturity, warmth, humour and a collaborative approach to my work, as well as insight gained from a rigorous, Masters-level training in counselling & psychotherapy and from many years of my own personal therapy. I have more than 3,000 hours of counselling experience with individual clients and a long working history in the healthcare sector, including a background in nursing.

Key details

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.

My counselling room is on the ground floor.
