About me

About me

I'm an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist registered and accredited with British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy,  (BACP).

Previously, my career was in media as a TV & Film Production Manager and I have an understanding of the dynamics of working freelance and for large corporate institutions

Since then I’ve worked as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist in several hospitals and Psychotherapy Units, (chronic illness, mental health and forensic services), in education (universities) and the third sector at Childline (children and young people) and Covid Speakeasy (bereavement)

With experience in various NHS settings, I regularly work with Medics, Clinicians and Allied Health Professionals in this private practice

Since March 2020, I’ve been providing online therapeutic groups by facilitating bereavement support at Covid Speakeasy and ongoing emotional support groups for clinically extremely vulnerable NHS patients that are shielding

How I work

Sometimes it may feel awkward or burdensome to share what we are really thinking and feeling with our family and friends. Talking with an experienced Therapist outside your social circle can be a valuable experience.  Practising with robust professional and ethical standards I provide a confidential space where worries and concerns are listened to non-judgementally, accepted and understood

As well as training in several therapeutic modalities, my core training is Psychodynamic that takes a relational approach. It focuses on what is happening in the here and now, as well as patterns from the past, that may be impacting on your current relationships. Therapy is a collaborative effort where we explore your worries and concerns to understand and find meaning so you can develop and move forward with your life and relationships

How I can help

Commonly, clients bring the impact that significant life events are having and some of these may include, bereavement and loss, chronic disease, marriage and separation or divorce, becoming a new parent or parenting difficulties, family dynamics or a career decision or transition

You may already have a diagnosis of anxiety or depression or perhaps you can't identify a cause or trigger and are struggling with uncertainty and worry about the future. You may be experiencing feelings of sadness, emptiness or low self worth

Our initial appointment provides us with an opportunity to explore what has brought you and discuss expectations or concerns you have about therapy. If we think we can work together we arrange to meet once a week for a series of sessions by video link using Zoom Pro

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.
