About me


These are challenging times. I am a counsellor based in East London/Essex area and I provide a confidential, safe space to help you find the solutions that are right for you.

Coming to counselling often means that you are ready for change, even if it is difficult to put that easily into words.

You may be feeling “stuck” in your relationship, your job, or just life in general, and are looking to change unhelpful patterns of behaviour; maybe your well-tried coping mechanisms are no longer working for you.

Being able to talk about what is on your mind, and feel listened to, in a safe and confidential environment, will help give you the opportunity to make sense of things and try out alternative choices and decisions.

Learning to trust your own instinct will help you develop a stronger sense of self and guide you towards achieving true autonomy in your life.

Getting in touch may offer the first step to a more exciting and rewarding life.

Together we can work towards uncovering your true potential.

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.

Our first session will provide you with an opportunity to see if you are happy to work with me, and would allow me to assess whether I feel I am the right person to help you.

During this first session we would discuss whether short term [maybe a set number of sessions] or longer term counselling would be appropriate to your needs and agree a set time for meeting.
