About me

I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist, providing a safe and Confidential space to explore what brings us into therapy. I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical guidelines for safe practice. My details can be found on the voluntary BACP register and the it's good to talk section of the website.

I am currently undertaking a 2 year MA at Terapia London in conjunction with Middlesex University - The MA is to become a UKCP registered Child Psychotherapist.

This to enhance my work with young people, I feel that it is so important to work with emerging mental health and help safeguard the future adults of tomorrow, life is so different now for our young people, many factors have changed and children and young people are exposed to many more pressures.
