Are you feeling down or lost? Do you find relationships hard? Are you keen to understand yourself better? Or perhaps work through a difficult decision?
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, providing a confidential place to talk. My approach is non-judgmental and client-focused, giving you the time and space to explore whatever is on your mind.
Sometimes we experience things in life that are overwhelming or difficult to discuss with the people around us. This can make us feel vulnerable and lonely. It can help to talk to someone who is trained to listen and can focus solely on you. When you feel properly understood you can gain insight and clarity, making it easier to make choices about your life.
Counselling with me can either be short-term, focused work or longer term - where issues can be explored in more depth. We will work together to examine the experiences that have led you to this point in your life, aiming for an enhanced sense of well-being in the future.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked in London for several years, with a diverse range of clients and addressing a wide variety of issues. Alongside my private practice I have worked as counsellor for two North London charities for adults. I have also worked as a School Counsellor, helping young people with emotional problems and challenging behaviour.
I am registered with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). The BACP require evidence of qualifications and good professional standards and I am bound by their ethical framework. I am in regular supervision in accordance with BACP guidelines.
I hold a BACP accredited diploma in Counselling. In addition I did the Introduction to Counselling Skills course at Birkbeck, University of London and completed a course on Adolescence at the Tavistock Centre. I continue to develop my skills, knowledge and experience through regular CPD workshops, peer discussion and reading.

- Child related issues
- Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
- Domestic violence
- Eating disorders
- Gender dysphoria
