We hear so much about the benefits of looking after our physical health but often forget our mental health is just as important. In the fast paced, stressful world we live in today, we face many struggles and often find our emotions can start to feel overwhelming. Counselling provides a safe space to talk through whatever you may be going through to help improve your wellbeing.
I am a fully qualified Counsellor with a Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I have experience of working with both adults and children. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I agree and follow their code of ethics for good practice.
I practice in Person Centred Therapy which believes that you are the expert of your life and by exploring your thoughts and feelings through Counselling, it can help you understand your feelings and resolve issues that may be troubling you. I offer a caring, confidential and non-judgemental place to explore your difficulties.
My experience has been mostly focussed on supporting adults and young people with anxiety and depression, issues around identity and culture, relationship problems and family matters.
In our initial session we can discuss your needs and what you're looking to get out of your therapy and you can decide if I am the right therapist for you.
I offer both face to face therapy sessions at Cherry Tree Therapy Centre in Buckhurst Hill, Essex or online via Zoom or your preferred online platform.
Please feel free to contact me for a free initial 15 minutes no obligation phone appointment on: 07796 696 582 or email me.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
