About me

I am a person-centred, integrative,qualified counsellor, who draws on a range of approaches according to what seems to fit you and your particular problem and stage of life. I offer a warm, pragmatic, open, humane approach to individuals and have 7 years experience with a range of clinical issues. I provide a confidential, safe space where you can talk about difficult emotional issues and struggles. I offer both open ended therapy and short term focused contracts.

I aim to create an environment that supports you making changes in your life to enable you to behave differently, or to think or feel about things differently and to feel you have a choice in how you move forward in life, relationships or your work.

I currently work for a mental health charity, based in Hackney and have worked with a wide range of presenting issues including depression, anxiety and panic attacks, stress, relationship problems, abuse-sexual, physical or emotional related to to an emotionally absent or depressed parent, early trauma, attachment issues and inappropriate care taking roles in childhood.

My practice is located in Dalston (a few minutes walk from Dalston Junction, Haggerston and Dalston Kinglan stations).

I provide clinical supervision to qualified counsellors and counsellors in training.

I offer a free first "getting to know you session".

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
