About me

I offer both in-person and online sessions. I work in Dalston, London on Mondays and Thursdays, and Brighton on Wednesdays.  Please contact me to find out more.

Sometimes in our lives, we experience periods where we need additional support to manage a difficult situation, work through a particular issue, or understand something from our past. Whilst friends and family can be a huge source of love and support, at times we need someone impartial to help us to make sense of things. I offer a space that is safe and calm, non-judgemental and confidential, so that you may share whatever is going on for you. I consider you to be the expert on your life, and my role as a therapist is to sit alongside you, as we make sense together, as an act of collaboration and co-creation.

I believe that relationships are where we can break, and that ultimately they are also where we can mend and heal. The process of healing looks and feels very different for each of us, but I feel that therapy, at the right time in your life, can provide a sacred space which is conducive to such healing, propelling you into new ways of being.

I work slowly and mindfully, and encourage creative processes and use techniques such as mindfulness and bodywork. I work both long-term and short-term. If you are interested in meeting, we would have an exploratory consultation where we establish if we can work together. We would then agree on a day and time for us to meet weekly for a 50-minute session.

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.
