Are your situation or feelings becoming unbearable? Do you need to feel better about yourself an your life? We all need help at times. Maybe you don't feel at peace or are in the middle of a crisis. Maybe you have have lost your way, or are not sure who you are.
When you start counselling, you can just show up as you are right now. Bring as much or as little as you want. Gently, we can start to make sense of it, so that you can feel better and move forward.
We can look together at whatever you are finding upsetting or difficult. That may be who you are as a person. Or feeling bad about yourself. It may be situations or relationships that are not working well. Perhaps you face anxiety or depression or anger. Or overwhelming feelings of anger, guilt or sadness. Or obsessions or thoughts that worry you. You may be feeling nothing at all or are just not sure what is wrong.
I work with all issues, but specialise in in-depth therapy. First, we work to make your situation more bearable. Then we can work with patterns of feelings, thoughts, behaviour and ways of relating to other people that are more difficult to understand and change. Counselling can be short or long term.
I have a particular interest in working with adults who faced trauma, abuse or neglect in childhood. If there are past or childhood experiences which trouble you, we can explore how these affect you now. We do this at your own pace and only if you want to.
If you experience dissociation or have identity issues, please also read the "Other Areas" section as you scroll down.
I have 30 years' experience working in counselling, mentoring and providing individual support. I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, working in private practice in London, mostly with adults. I have specialist training to work with traumatic bereavement.
Living and working with people facing difficulties has always been part of my life. I started by counselling employees in the City (London) who were having problems with lifestyle issues.
I have been a volunteer counsellor for a charity providing services for people who have lost a pregnancy, baby or child, including through miscarriage or termination; and people facing domestic abuse; and for another charity for people who have a lost a family member in a road crash or been traumatised themselves.
I have lived and worked with young offenders and people with addictions. I set up and ran an online support group for people with gender identity issues and have worked with services dealing with welfare rights, human rights violations, mental health problems and disabilities.

As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I am committed to on-going professional development and work within their Code of Ethics. I hold comprehensive civil liability insurance and have been Enhanced DBS checked to work with vulnerable adults and children.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
