Hi there! I'm a counsellor based in South West London and London Bridge helping people who are going through a difficult time or a loss to rebuild their lives.
Sometimes things don't work out in our lives as we would have hoped they did.
Perhaps a relationship has come to an end or you have started feeling very anxious or/and depressed and finding it hard to enjoy your life.
You might have lost someone you cared about and feel like its difficult to cope, to understand what is going on and to make sense of why you are feeling this way.
I work as a counsellor, to help people find their own path through difficult times in their life. I give my clients time for themselves that is in a supportive, open and non-judgemental environment.
I explore with them what is going on in their life, how they are making sense of things and support them in developing their confidence and ability to respond effectively to whatever challenges they face.
You might be in a difficult place in your life right now, and wondering if counselling is right for you. I offer a free initial phone consultation so it you are interested in finding out more or want to arrange an initial introductory counselling session, please feel free to email, text or call me. I shall get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks and I wish you all the best.
I also offer phone and online counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am trained as a counsellor in Gestalt therapy and I also use elements of mindfulness, CBT, Jungian and transactional analysis in my work.
I have worked with people from a variety of backgrounds who have brought a range of issues they have sought to address . These include anxiety, depression, loneliness, anger management, loss and bereavement, traumatic experiences, work issues, low self-esteem, relationship problems and family issues. In addition to my private practice, I have worked as a counsellor in an NHS GP's surgery and I also worked in the charity sector with the stillbirth and neonatal death charity SANDS.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
