About me

Why Come to Therapy?

We all feel anxious, sad, overwhelmed and alone in unhelpful behaviour patterns at times. Our work together will explore your feelings and help you find your way forward. This will encourage new insight, helpful coping skills and self acceptance. We will work together to make sense and meaning towards helpful and lasting change.  

I provide a free 30 minute introductory call for you to see how you feel working together.

I have over 14 years experience working within the NHS and private practice. I support clients with challenges including; anxiety, depression, low self esteem, abuse, addiction, anger, family issues, relationship breakdown, childhood trauma, self harm, suicidal thoughts, PTSD and bereavement. I support clients diagnosed with ADHD and ASD.

I provide a warm, safe, non-judgemental space where you can talk through your feelings. 

Client Testimonials:  ‘I feel hopeful again after therapy’

’This therapy has been the best gift I have ever given to myself’  

'Our work has given me a voice and I finally know what I want’

‘Therapy has really boosted my confidence, even my family & friends can see it and I finally like myself’.

'We feel much closer as a couple now'.

Together we can explore unhelpful beliefs and patterns to find a deeper understanding of the possible source and help to encourage change. 

Individuals
- Building trust is fundamental to helpful therapy and my proactive relational approach creates a safe space. This supports honesty, self reflection, understanding, acceptance and gentle challenge to explore the barriers towards helpful change. I support numerous clients diagnosed with ADHD and those on the Autistic Spectrum ASD

Couples - Therapy provides a helpful and neutral space to work towards rebuilding trust, intimacy and improve communication and compromise. We will explore unspoken hurt, jtoxic patterns of behaviour, pain, disappointment and resentment that limits trust, barriers to intimacy and re-connection. Couple work can involve; anger, mistrust, infidelity/affairs,  addiction, lack of intimacy/sex, abuse, loss, stepfamilies, separation, divorce, co-parenting, psychosexual difficulties and more. 

Teenagers & Children - I also work at CAMHS and have over 24 years experience working with children and young people / teenagers within a supportive, therapeutic environment. I support young clients with depression, anxiety, low self esteem/confidence, anger, self harm, suicidal thoughts, eating difficulties, bullying, abuse, addiction, loss, gender, identity, sexuality and more. I support numerous clients diagnosed with ADHD and those on the Autistic Spectrum ASD.

Families - I have over 24 years experience working with families in a supportive, therapeutic setting. My work with families has involved exploring anger, respect, control, boundaries, trauma, loss, family breakdown and more.

I am an experienced Counsellor and have held a busy private practice since 2012 in Kingston and Greater London. I work within the NHS and University settings. I have worked in national charities and community settings. 

Initial Session

Starting therapy can make you feel anxious and I am mindful of this in our first session as we explore your goals and how therapy works. I believe trust is key to helpful therapy.

I provide a free 30 minute introductory call for you to see how you feel working together.

Member organisations

BACP
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.
