About me

I am a professionally qualified integrative counsellor, and my practice offers a safe and confidential space for you to discuss what is troubling you. Together we can recognise and make sense of the problems you are experiencing and explore the choices needed to overcome these difficulties in a positive and confident manner. Whether you are experiencing distress or anxiety at home, in the workplace or in relationships, I offer an empathetic, respectful and non-Judge mental environment from which to discuss your issues.

My aim is to work with you to create a collaborative and supportive relationship, built upon respect, trust and honesty. This unique relationship will allow us to explore your past and help you to understand how it has shaped your current feelings and personality and how we can make positive changes to reach your future goals. Depending on your needs I can offer focused short-term counselling or long-term open-ended psychodynamic therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the British Association of counselling and psychotherapy and have a diploma in integrative counselling and psychotherapy. I offer a range of therapies - emotion focused therapy, existential, Gestalt, humanistic, integrative, person centred, psychodynamic, solution focused brief therapy, and transpersonal therapy. I have experience working at Sutton Womens Centre helping women affected by domestic violence and also at Mount Carmel Treatment Centre helping clients with drug and alcohol issues.

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

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.
