About me

I am an experienced, fully qualified and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with a bright, spacious and welcoming private practice in E5.

I offer a warm, safe and compassionate space where we can explore issues troubling you together in strict confidence and without judgement or prejudice. Whether you'd like to come for a few sessions or engage in longer-term work, I would be happy to discuss your needs and tailor my approach accordingly.

I work with people suffering from relationship problems and a wide range of conditions including depression, anxiety and panic attacks.

Perhaps you are going through a difficult time due to relationship breakdown or bereavement, or suffering from long-term mental or unexplained physical symptoms. You may wish to explore your identity, sexual orientation or feel stuck and unable to live your life to the full or suffer from creative block. I have many years of experience helping clients from diverse backgrounds to reflect, heal, move forward and find renewed energy and new meaning to their lives.

Please get in touch if you would like to ask any questions, explore how we could work together or to arrange an initial meeting. An initial consultation is without any obligation to continue in treatment.

I respond to all queries within 24 hours and all correspondence is fully confidential.

I trained at WPF Therapy, a leading academic and clinical institution for counselling and psychotherapy. I am also a registered member of the FPC ( Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and a member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) I adhere to the professional Code of Ethics set out by these bodies.

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.
