About me

People come to counselling for many reasons. Constant stress and anxiety can make it feel difficult coping with life or you may find yourself struggling against recurring depression. It can feel that you are stuck in a repeating pattern with no way out.

Some feel overwhelmed navigating loss or life transitions and finding a way to adapt to the new world they find themselves in. I can help you to find a way through this.

You may need help and support to recognise your strengths and become aware of the choices you have. You can come to a better understanding of yourself and your place in the world. You can learn to see yourself in a more positive light and challenge your 'inner critic'.

I offer a confidential space where you feel safe to explore these issues. You can develop greater self-awareness and clarity in your life and find an easier way of being.

Training, qualifications & experience

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

I have an integrative training which has given me an understanding of 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.
