About me

If you are in emotional difficulty and need help, I am here. Anxiety, depression, relationship problems, a loss or bereavement - sharing it and being heard without judgement, can really help. As a problem-solving counsellor, I will work with you to find a better way forward.

I help clients make sense of their relationships and the struggles they have had so far.  Many of my clients are going though the major life events, significant birthdays and are wondering, how did I get here? Why am I feeling this way? What does my future hold? Maybe life experiences have impacted on your self-esteem and confidence.

I am here to help you find ways to live comfortably and confidently; to find some sort of peace with yourself and others and become the person you want to be. We can meet using Skype or Zoom or we can meet in a local park for a stroll or a sit on a bench.

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and a member of the BACP, the governing body that regulates the ethical practices of counsellors and psychotherapists.

I worked in the Lambeth NHS (IAPT) service for over two years and was an Approved Counsellor for the charity, Anxiety UK.

My model of working is 'integrative' counselling which means I integrate an empathetic, person-centred approach with the psychodynamic model. I will ask you questions about your past to see if anything back then is getting in the way of your happiness now. Perhaps you are repeating behaviours that don't serve you well.

Everyone's story and circumstances are unique and I will listen to you without judgement, so together we can find you a new future.

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.
