I am a London based, Integrative counsellor specialising in working with adolescents and young adults from 11-25 years old from my private practice in South East London.
I aim to build up a trusting relationship that supports and encourages children and young people in exploring their feelings, life and problems, so that they become easier to understand, and able to bring about change. There are many challenges facing young people today, I believe that together we can work through these difficulties.
I have been working with young people and their families for the last 22 years in a variety of different settings, and with a range of complex needs. I have spent 7 years working in education as a Lead Counsellor in a secondary school, I now specialise in one to one counselling for children and young people from from my practice in London providing face to face, and online sessions. .
Years of working with children has given me extensive knowledge of child development and a good insight into the difficulties that young people face today, and, how best to support them in overcoming their problems.
I use an integrative model that incorporates person-centred, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic therapy into a working model. I believe this approach best suits young people as therapy can be tailored to meet each individuals needs.
I believe every individual has the ability to change and grow towards their potential.
If you are concerned about your child's emotional well-being, or are a young adult yourself looking for emotional support, I welcome you to get in touch with me and we can take it from there.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
