About me

I am a professionally qualified and experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist offering long and short term counselling to individuals. I work in Bromley and Liverpool Street, London. I run a young person clinic (ages 13-19) on Saturday mornings.

Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by life's pressures and difficulties and this can cause problems such as anxiety and depression. Past or present issues can cause emotional turmoil and it can be difficult to make sense of life's puzzle. I offer a safe, warm, non judgmental environment where you might be able to put some of the pieces back together.

I work integratively, meaning I can draw on different theories to suit each individual client, their needs and issues. If you don't want to explore childhood issues that's ok. If you would like to explore early attachment and get in touch with your inner child that's ok too. I know from my own experience of therapy that it takes a lot of courage to take that first step, and I will do my best to make you feel relaxed, settled and comfortable.

My areas of expertise include loss and bereavement, trauma, anxiety, depression, low self esteem and helping you find meaning in your life. I am also interested in the relationship between body and mind, as well as spiritual and faith issues.

I graduated from Kingston University with a BA (Hons) Degree and then went on to do a Diploma in psychotherapeutic counselling at CPTA (Counselling & Psychotherapy Training Academy) in London.

Sessions last 50 minutes and are usually weekly.

I am in regular supervision and am fully insured.
