About me

People come to counselling for many reasons. You may find yourself struggling against recurring depression; stuck in a repeating pattern with no way out. If feelings of stress and constant pressure are your everyday experience, life can feel impossible. Fear and uncertainty felt early in life can be experienced as generalised anxiety in adult life.

I can help you make sense of difficult feelings; family issues, loss, isolation and lack of confidence and help you to find a different perspective. You can come to a better understanding of yourself.

If you need insight and support to recognise your strengths and find meaning in your life, I offer a confidential space where you will feel safe to share your thoughts and feelings.

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 had many years experience of counselling clients with a wide variety of presenting issues in a mainstream Community Counselling service and 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.
