About me

Are you struggling to find peace and calm?

Are you suffering from anxiety or depression?

Are you frequently overwhelmed by anger?

Are you trapped in familiar but damaging patterns?

Are you looking for a way to manage a crisis or change in your life?

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and welcoming environment in which to explore the issues that are troubling you. With a willingness to understand your current situation and what brings you to therapy, we can address these issues together.

I'm not here to fix anyone, but I can empower you to find your own answers. That said, I believe I can give you insight into what might be going on for you. I can sit with you in your stuck-ness, your wildness, your sense of overwhelm.

I'll be with you, wherever you need to go, or whatever you need to be. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. If we decide that you may need another type of support, I can help you find it. I work in Shooters Hill in southeast London, or online via Zoom.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
