About me

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor working with a broad range of clients, individuals and couples alike. People often come to see me because they are feeling depressed or anxious for a variety of reasons. They might have been affected by life events or changes in circumstance, such as a bereavement, an illness, a relationship breakdown, the loss of a job or a difficult pregnancy. Others may be feeling stressed at work, or overwhelmed with caring responsibilities or simply "stuck" but not know why. When it comes to relationship difficulties, people sometimes choose to come to counselling with their partner so they may work through their issues together.

Right now, life may feel particularly difficult due to the CORONAVIRUS. You may feel anxious about your health or that of a loved one. You may find yourself worrying about your job, your finances, your children's education or your family's future. These are normal thoughts and feelings to experience at a time like this, and I am available to help you through it via video or phone.

Whether you are experiencing one of these issues or another that’s not listed, or you simply want to talk to someone outside of your day-to-day life in order to gain a different perspective, my aim is to support you as best I can.

While I love working with people from all walks of life, I feel particularly well suited to working with those in the creative field, such as writers, producers and performing artists. My other area of special interest is in working on improving relationships, both with individual clients as well as with couples.

I am currently available for Zoom, Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangout sessions. Or over the phone, if you wish.

I will be available to see clients in Fulham Broadway, London SW6 Monday-Friday from 9:00 am-3:00 pm once more after the lockdown is over.

Here's how to get started:

  • Please contact me by telephone or email to discuss your situation.
  • If we both feel it's the right fit, we will set up an appointment to meet.
  • All communications between us are confidential, and I reply to all messages promptly.
