About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist currently working for the North East London NHS Trust and the Charity MIND as well as in private practice.  I understand that there are times in life when we can find ourselves overwhelmed by events and experiences; we can feel lost, isolated or directionless.  At such times finding the courage to reach out for help and support can feel quite difficult. I provide a warm empathic and confidential space in which to help clients understand and overcome their struggles.  I work as an integrative therapist which means that I am trained in a number of different modalities and adapt the way I work to suit the particular needs of my clients. In my experience no two clients are alike and understanding what gives people their uniqueness, can often help make the connection they are in need of.

Are you finding life difficult at the right now , perhaps you are feeling stuck or trapped by difficulties you are having to endure, or you may be seeking to learn more about who you really are and what you want from life? Please look at my website to find out more about my background and experience and get in touch if you think I may be able to help you.

I am based in South Woodford , East London and offer face to face,  online and telephone appointments . I am fully trained in online counselling having undertaken training provided by the Open University in conjunction with the NHS in response to Coronavirus crisis. 

I can provide an initial consultation at no charge in which we can explore your needs and whether we are the right fit for one another.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Master of Science degree in Therapeutic Counselling and a Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling and Counselling Skills.  I also hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Personnel Management.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

DBS check

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
