About me

I am an experienced and qualified Integrative Counsellor with a background in business management. I work as a therapist and supervisor in South London mainly in Wimbledon and Clapham. I understand the stresses of working to deadlines, managing other people’s expectations and holding responsibility at a high level.

I work with clients who have a variety of presenting issues, mainly I work with:

  • anxiety
  • stress
  • relationship issues
  • sexuality
  • depression
  • and trauma
  • victims of domestic violence

Type of issues I work with are listed in the separate section of this page.

I have worked as a primary counsellor, family therapist, a group facilitator, trainer, line manager and clinical supervisor in various settings particularly within the addiction sector - I ran parenting skills, divorce support and drug and alcohol additions training, education, training and employment training / groups. I worked for a considerable time with C.R.I. (Crime Reduction Initiative) which allowed me to deeply understand drug and alcohol dependency, dual diagnosis, violence, shock, trauma, self-harm and sexual issues. For a number of years I worked with clients who have been involved with the child protection services as well as the criminal justice system. Over the last nine years I have also worked with carers who often feel isolated and invisible.

My work in NHS in a major South London Hospital (2013-2018) involved working with consultants who specialise in treating patients experiencing hearing loss as well as having balance issues. Their patients were referred to me for short-term or open-ended therapy. I also work in private practice offering individual, couple as well as family therapy in London and Surrey and provide a confidential, non-judgmental, nurturing space for you to explore any issues.

I started my company BASE Counselling and Consultancy Services in 2013 having worked in psychological therapies since 2009.

As an integrative therapist and supervisor I will draw on different aspects of various therapeutic models when working with clients. During your time in therapy with me you can explore relationship issues either present or historic, boundary issues and belief systems that impact your life. I will also support you in developing new coping strategies. I am also available for crisis counselling and short notice appointments.

In clinical supervision, we would be looking to cover qualitative, resourcing and developmental elements - our meetings will reflect and review clinical situations with your clients - the aim is supporting you in your professional environment.

Member organisations

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.
