About me

Hello there,

I am an Integrative Psychodynamic Counsellor (BACP registered) and a Counselling Psychologist & Integrative Psychotherapist in the final stages of Doctorate training at the Metanoia Institute, London. I am also a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) and have worked for the NHS offering support to clients since 2004. I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and I abide by their code of ethics to ensure safe working.

I offer integrative counselling and psychotherapy. An 'integrative' approach means I draw on different ideas and theories to help people, as I believe every individual is unique and that there is no one type of therapy that fits all. Most importantly I believe it is important to have a trusting therapeutic relationship which is central in enabling you to explore your difficulties, get to know yourself and therefore have more choice in this often difficult process called life. I value being collaborative and transparent in my work with you, talking openly about how we are working and reviewing as we go along.

As part of my training I have engaged in personal therapy myself, and I understand how anxiety provoking it can be to both ask for help and face the prospect of change. In the first session we would explore your problems and goals/ expectations of therapy. If you would like to work together we can either contract for a set number of sessions, or some people prefer open ended therapy.

I practice from a safe and confidential location near Crystal Palace Park. My practice is also easily accessible from Sydenham, Sydenham Hill, Gipsy Hill, and Penge. I currently have slots available on Wednesday evening & Friday daytime.

Feel free to check out my website for more information-

I offer a free 15 minute telephone so we can decide if booking an initial session feels right- you can call or e- mail to book this.

Further information

Here are some FAQ's:

What happens in the first session?

In the first session we would discuss your difficulties and what brings you to therapy. We would also talk about your expectations/goals. Sometimes people do not know what their goals might be and this is fine too. This assessment is a two-way process to find out if we could work together and for you to ask any questions about therapy.

How long will therapy last?

I offer both short and long term therapy and we would discuss this in your initial appointment. I usually contract to a minimum of six sessions and then review to see how we are working together.

How often do I attend?

I offer weekly sessions as standard, but this may be negotiated depending on needs.

What if I can’t make a session?

If you commit to therapy I would hold your weekly space, and so I have cancellation policy in place which we would discuss when starting work together.

If you have any other questions please get in touch, thanks
