I am an integrative counsellor and supervisor. I believe the most important aspect of counselling is the unique relationship between my client’s and myself. I attempt to build a therapeutic relationship in which there is trust, the client feels valued and safe to be able to explore their issues openly and honestly without feeling judged.
Validating my client as an individual with the potential to develop their self-regard means they are able to look to achieve greater insight and invite different responses to make more conscious choices. I believe in empowering my clients through self-reflection to understand what is nourishing and what is less satisfying in their lives.
Counselling enabled me to work through my own feelings and issues, enabling me to identify with my own regressed feelings and become aware of myself in relation to my world.
My practice is based in Greenwich, Eltham where I provide a warm, inviting environment in which you can relax and feel at ease.

I have been a practicing counsellor since 2007 and supervisor since 2010.
I work with individuals, couples and young people from age 13 +. I have experience of working in schools, colleges, children and family centres, and youth agencies.
At present I work for a rape crises centre as a rape and sexual abuse and domestic violence counsellor. I have experience working with a wide range of material, both with adults and adolescents.
Much of my work has been around client’s who have experienced trauma at some point in their lives, I draw upon different theories including creative medium to enable clients to become in touch with their own unique process and connect to their sense of complete self.
I have worked for a decade in a school setting with young people with special education needs; autism, Asperger’s, dyslexia and ADHD.

Supervision & training
As an Integrative supervisor I work using various methods to facilitate the needs of my supervisee's, to explore their therapeutic relationship with their clients. Working Person Centred offers a non-judgemental relationship where they can explore what they need and want, and how they can work towards achieving the goals of their clients. Psychodynamically we would be working with the unconscious thoughts and feelings to bring these to the surface, looking at past influences recurring patterns.View supervision profile
