About me

Are your situation or feelings becoming unbearable?  Do you need to feel better about yourself and your life? Maybe you don't feel at peace or are in the middle of a crisis. Maybe you have lost your way, or are not sure who you are. We all need help at times! When you start counselling, you can just show up as you are right now. Bring as much or as little as you want. We can look together at whatever you're finding upsetting or difficult.  

I work with all issues. That may be feeling unhappy with yourself, your relationships or your situation. Perhaps you face anxiety or depression. Or  feelings of anger, sadness, guilt or jealousy.  Maybe you're troubled by obsessions or thoughts that worry you.  Or don't know what's wrong and just need to talk about it. Gently, we can start to make sense of it, so that you can feel better and move forward.

I have a special interest in patterns that repeat in your life or feel impossible to change.  First, we work to make your situation more bearable. Then we can look at what you want to change about yourself and your relationships with other people. 

About half of my clients at any one time have faced trauma, abuse or neglect, often as a child or young person. 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 am a psychotherapist working in private practice in central London and online.

I am trained to Level 7.  (Most professional bodies allow counsellors to practice with a Level 3 or 4 qualification.) I have 30 years' experience in providing various forms of therapy, counselling, mentoring and individual support.

I have specialist training to work with traumatic bereavement and undertook 80 hours of training to work safely and effectively online, rather than just switching to remote working overnight when the pandemic started. 

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 people who have lost a pregnancy, baby or child, including through miscarriage or termination; for people facing domestic abuse; and 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.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

NHS workers, I provide lower-cost counselling for up to 20 weeks for £30 per session, in partnership with Lucy Farr at JuluCounselling.com/counselling-for-nhs-workers.

I have particular experience of working with people who:

  • identify as transgender or are questioning their gender identity

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.

The Kings Cross/Camden venue is wheelchair accessible. If you decide at the first session that access isn't adequate, I will not charge you for the session. The Bloomsbury venue is a listed building and unsuitable for people with severe mobility problems.
