About me

I'm here to offer more than just counselling and therapy - I'm here to be a companion on your journey. Maybe you're just figuring out who you are, what matters to you, and navigating life's ups and downs. If challenges have popped up and you're not sure what's next, I'm here to help.

I have sat alongside individuals from various backgrounds, each with their own unique stories and worries. I am curious as to who you are and how you are in the world; and I will provide a safe space, free of judgement, where you can gently unfold the chapters of your life at your own pace.

If the idea of starting therapy leaves you feeling nervous, or if you have apprehensions about opening up that's absolutely okay. I was the same when I first saw a therapist. To ease into it, we can schedule a 20-minute video call - a chance for you to get a feel for how we might work together and see if it feels right for you.

In our sessions, my commitment is to be fully present with you, sharing the moment as you experience it. Through this shared presence, and with some gentle challenging, I believe you can find meaning in your life, understand your place in the world, and reveal the possibilities to live a life more to your liking.

I trained in integrative therapy which allows me to draw on a number of different therapeutic approaches. I naturally lean more towards existential therapy which I find gives more freedom to explore who you are and how you want to live, gaining deeper insights into yourself.

​All sessions are confidential and I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma (Level 7) in Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling which gives me a broad knowledge of Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Existential therapies. I naturally lean towards Existential therapy as I feel this approach gives us more possibilities in the therapy room.

I work with adults and young people. My experience ranges from working in private practice, psychotherapy clinics, universities, secondary schools, pupil referral units and with families in the community; either online, over the phone or in-person.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Additional information

I want to ensure that therapy is available to as many people as possible, so I do offer lower rates for students or if you have a low income. Please contact me to discuss.

I offer short term & open-ended therapy online and in-person. Online work is typically via Zoom; however I am open to other video calling platforms. 

I see clients in-person in London Bridge (SE1); also from my garden office in Sidcup (DA15), a 5-minute walk from the station. Parking is also available.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
