About me

I am an psychotherapeutic counsellor in private practice, working with individuals both short and long-term.

I provide a safe, contained and soulful space within which to explore what might feel difficult, unsafe or troublesome, whether in the past or at this moment in your life. I believe in the healing power of being able to share your story, be witnessed and bring all aspects of yourself at a pace that feels right for you. My commitment to you is that I will be alongside you in a confidential, respectful and non-judgmental way.

I can offer help and support with the following:

  • Self-Esteem
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Addictions
  • Anxiety / Panic attacks
  • Bereavement / Loss / Grief
  • End-of-life / Terminal illness
  • Sexual, emotional & physical abuse
  • Depression
  • HIV
  • Existential crisis
  • Lack of meaning
  • Mid-life crisis
  • Depersonalisation
  • Loneliness
  • Self-harm or suicidal thoughts
  • Sexuality & gender identity
  • Trauma
  • Difficulties related to difference: race, culture, disability, mental health

The therapeutic relationship is at the heart of our work together, while being an integrative counsellor means that I draw on a range of approaches depending on your needs, and how these might change over time.

At the core of my therapeutic work with you is the belief that change is possible and that you can develop the resources you need to heal and feel whole again.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Integrative Transpersonal Counselling Diploma from Re-Vision, accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. In line with the BACP’s framework, I regularly discuss my work with an experienced supervisor.

I have worked as a counsellor in private counselling services and with the national charity MIND, offering therapy to clients of all different backgrounds, class, gender, sexual orientation, race, and individuals with a wide range of issues. In the past, I have volunteered as a HIV-prevention mentor with the charity Metro and I am currently working as a volunteer counsellor with the charity Headstrong.
