About me

I know that life can feel overwhelming and very hard sometimes. Our work together can focus on developing your CHOICES and work towards CHANGE. I offer a safe, trusting, supportive and PROACTIVE counselling environment. One where we can carefully develop your COPING SKILLS, RESILIENCE and strengths while nurturing exploration and PERSONAL GROWTH. We will explore the difficult and unhelpful PATTERNS, experiences and feelings that LIMIT YOUR LIFE.

The relationship we form will aim to make you feel understood, accepted and help you gain NEW PERSPECTIVES and EMPOWER YOU IN YOUR LIFE. The key to helpful therapy is HONESTY and TRUST therefore the RELATIONSHIP WE BUILD TOGETHER is key.

Please feel free to call or email me to arrange a (reduced fee) introductory session - 07958 668 040 /

I work with individuals, couples, children/young people and families. It can be very painful to see repetitive destructive uncontrollable patterns in your life and relationships. You may feel you would benefit from talking with someone neutral who will be non-judgmental, understanding and give you honest, helpful feedback that can really make a difference.

You may be experiencing painful feelings including depression, anxiety, confusion, feeling sad, loneliness, anger management difficulties, panic, relationship and family issues. This may include feelings of worry, sadness, a bereavement, low self esteem, loss, shame, guilt, fear and isolation.

TESTIMONIALS: This is what some of my clients have said about their experience of therapy and the work we have done together:

'It is like I have finally found my voice’

’Our counselling has really boosted my confidence'

'Coming to see you has been a positive step forward for me and improved my life'

'I feel it has given me my life back'

’I have changed so much for the better, even my friends can see it’

'The therapy has helped us work together again as a couple'

‘Our family home is much more peaceful since the therapy and we enjoy spending time together again’

‘I feel like all the jigsaw pieces of my life have come together and I can make sense of things now’

I am a fully qualified therapist (BACP) and support individuals, couples and families with personal and relationship issues. I have a private practice in the Kingston, Surbiton and Twickeham areas and have worked within local counselling services and NHS health centres for over 10 years.

Therapy provides an opportunity to explore your experiences, thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment. This can enable realistic and effective ways forward to feeling happier, improving the quality of your life, your relationships and most helpful how you feel about yourself. I work from an Integrative-relational approach which means that I use a range of different theories to support our work together and find the ones that work best for you


I support individuals with anxiety, relationships issues, depression, low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, panic disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, relationship issues, depression, addictions and thought disorders. Physical, emotional and sexual abuse from childhood through to adult life, grief and loss, relationship issues, anger management, ADHD and additional needs. I have supported clients with various addiction problems including alcohol, drug and sex/porn addictions, anxiety, relationship issues, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, bipolar disorder and manic depression. Our work will encourage SELF ACCEPTANCE / awareness, exploration into limiting self beliefs/ UNHELPFUL BEHAVIOUR PATTERNS and develop more UNDERSTANDING, helpful COPING SKILLS / strategies and EMPOWER YOU.

Children & Young People

I have worked with children and young people / adolescents / teenagers for over 18 years within a therapeutic environment. The young people I have worked with have experienced depression, anxiety, low self esteem/ confidence, bullying, eating disorders, self harm, behaviour difficulties, PTSD, abuse and a wide range of complex emotional problems. I am highly skilled at building rapport, forming trusting, honest and helpful therapeutic relationships with children and young people that supports their own exploration and growth. We work on building self esteem, healthy relationships within their family and peer group. This includes LEARNING TO MANAGE FEELINGS such as ANGER / ANXIETY and other difficult emotions and learning new COPING SKILLS and SELF CARE. This aims to build practical EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE, self acceptance and a better understanding of their own thoughts and feelings. I provide practical tools and coping strategies.


My work with couples has involved challenging relationship issues including; communication difficulties, anger, mistrust, abandonment, rejection, anxiety, conflicting expectations, anxiety, affairs/infidelity, domestic violence, addictions, fertility and conception issues, substance misuse, loss, gambling addiction, sex addiction, pornography addiction, miscarriage, stepfamilies, family breakdown; separation / divorce and psychosexual difficulties. The key elements in working with couples are exploring and improving communication, negotiation, compromise, affection, empathy and honesty. Couples issues can be explored productively and supported within a NEUTRAL, unbiased therapeutic environment. Couples work can involve challenging unhelpful and limiting patterns and beliefs, exploring realistic expectations, negative behaviours and working towards REBUILDING TRUST within an authentic loving relationship. Through the sessions I support couples to IMPROVE COMMUNICATION, uncover, explore and CHALLENGE unspoken hurt, pain, disappointment and resentment that limits their INTIMACY and connection.


I also work with families and help them to explore parenting styles and STRATEGIES, emotional BOND/CLOSENESS, COMMUNICATION and CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR that may be facing as a family group/system. These may include issues around ANGER, CONTROL and BOUNDARIES. I can work with a few family members and the whole family. We explore feelings and behaviours and the ways in which they impact upon individuals and the whole family. We look at ways to become closer, improve practical communication and NEGOTIATION skills at home. Looking at the family history and expectations of each member. I have been trained in and facilitated parenting skills courses which help enhance current parenting skills. I explore alternatives with parents such as improving communication, using empathy and praise, realistic expectations and new behaviour strategies.


As a supervisor for therapists I work in a collaborative way exploring and developing your style through reflection and support. We will explore how the work impacts you in regards to stress and self care. While using self reflection we will explore your skills, ability and understanding bearing in mind effectiveness and accountability.

I work within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am a professional fully qualified BA (Hons) Integrative Relational Counsellor. I have a private practice in the Kingston, Surbiton and TW1 areas and have worked within local counselling services and NHS centres. I have a wide range of experience of working with individuals, couples, young people, children and families of all ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations.

My training as an integrative therapist means that I work within a number of different therapeutic perspectives - Psychodynamic, CBT, Humanistic, Person Centred and Gestalt - which will support our work together and we will find the approach that works best for you.

About me

I have worked locally with children and families within social care for over 18 years. I worked within national charities including The MS Society supporting staff and volunteers. I have a private counselling practice in Kingston, Surbiton, Twickeham and Kilburn. I have completed training as an Integrative Relational Counsellor at Middlesex University. I completed an Advanced Certificate in Counselling. I have also completed Couple Dynamics Counselling Training, Systemic Family Therapy Training FdYr1, Clinical Supervison and CBT Training.

Many years ago I hoped therapy would help me to explore some difficult issues and embark upon a journey of self acceptance. As my feelings and understanding of myself slowly changed I became more interested in therapeutic work and began training to become a therapist.

I offer both short and long-term therapy within a holistic approach. Short term therapy can be 6-12 weeks solution focused (CBT) on a particular issue. Longer term therapy aims to explore a client's life at a deeper level. It is entirely up to you to determine the length and the focus of our work together and this can be discussed at our initial session.

I am able to offer appointments in the day, evenings, weekends and home visits
