About me

Difficulties with relationships, depression, anxiety, morbid/suicidal thoughts, work related problems and substance misuse. I use a relational-integrative approach to counselling and Psychotherapy.

I support individual adults and older adolescents in Central London W1 (Regent Street), South London SW9 (Brixton) and TW15 (Ashford, Staines, Middlesex).

I offer short-term (solution focused: typically 1, 6 or 12 sessions) and open-ended/long-term (depth work) interventions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and  Psychodynamic Counsellor (Metanoia Institute/Middlesex University), with over 20 years of experience working within the caring professions. This includes supporting young people, families, and adults within social care, youth justice & substance misuse services.

Previous to training as a Counsellor and psychotherapist, I have completed both a Bsc and MA in Psychology, and throughout my career, I have completed a range of specialist training aimed directly at supporting those with emotional, social and mental health difficulties. Key areas I have trained in include ADHD, Addiction, Family breakdown/Parenting support and Counselling for Depression.

In addition to my private practice, I am a supervisor to Counsellors who deliver short-term interventions within the NHS. This service is for adults who are seen across G.P. surgeries in the London Borough of Lambeth.

I also have a professional background in Health and Fitness as a Head Squash coach. This follows being brought up in a family in which engaging in a diverse range of sports was always encouraged, meaning I have always and continue to, enjoy for myself and promote to others, regular sport and exercise. Perhaps due to the environmental, as well as health benefits I have over the last 10 years become a regular cyclist. More recently I attend regular Yoga classes - which helps me improve the integration and mind and body, within myself and those I am in contact with.

With my interest in sport and physical health alongside my career in emotional and mental health, plus many other influences, I have become increasingly aligned with non-dualism and its underlying approaches to science & philosophy. This approach highlights the centrality of compassion toward self (often damaged and requiring support to reestablish) and others for healthy and successful living. I, therefore recognize this perspective as central to the healing process.
