About me

People come to counselling for many reasons. Stress, anxiety or low self esteem can make it feel difficult coping with life, especially when circumstances are challenging.  Many find themselves constantly struggling against recurring depression and it can feel that you are stuck in a repeating pattern with no way out.

Others may feel overwhelmed by loss; bereavement or the end of a relationship. It may feel impossible navigating transitions in life and finding a way to adapt to the new world you find yourself in. I can help you to make sense of this and to recognise your strengths.

You may need help and support to deal with these issues and become aware of the choices you have. You can come to a better understanding of yourself and how things could work better for you. You can learn to see yourself in a more positive light and challenge your 'inner critic'.

I provide a confidential and reflective space where you will feel safe to explore these emotions and find a better way forward.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Counselling (Integrative) from the Minster Centre, NW London - a BACP accredited course

I have an integrative training which integrates and blends many theoretical perspectives.This means I can adapt to what works best for you.

I have had several years experience of counselling clients with a wide variety of presenting issues in a mainstream Community Counselling service and many years as a Counsellor in a South London Bereavement Service.

I am a member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics. I am committed to pursuing my ongoing professional development and maintain an awareness of current thinking in the field of psychotherapy.
