About me

Life’s many challenges can cause us to feel lost, stuck and unable to cope. A sudden loss, debilitating illness or traumatic experience can turn our lives upside down. Parenting issues, financial pressures and mental illness can jeopardize our families’ wellbeing. Relationship problems can cause anger, depression and loneliness. And work-related issues can lead to decreased satisfaction, burnout and poor performance. Whether short-term or deeply entrenched, our problems can rob us of our peace of mind, self-esteem and ability to create rewarding lives.

Now imagine how your life would change if you could

  • overcome traumatic experiences
  • create a more loving and cohesive family
  • build more fulfilling relationships or
  • better manage workplace issues.

As a Psychotherapist and Counsellor, I can help you make sense of your feelings and what you’re going through. We will work together to identify emotional triggers, understand unhelpful patterns and behaviours and decipher conflicting messages in personal and professional situations. We will also identify the things you can change and develop ways to change them.

I have nearly 20 years of experience helping people from diverse backgrounds solve their problems and reach their full potential. I also help employees in the financial sector manage the circumstances—such as high-stress levels, long work hours and excessive demands—that can have a detrimental impact on their physical and psychological health. I provide a safe and supportive space where clients’ individuality is respected, and I use a tailor-made, holistic approach to help them reach awareness and resolution.

Things might be hard right now, but healing and growth are within reach. I can help you regain your power and realise your goals. You can call me at 074 07062 736 or send me an email to to arrange a consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by its high ethics and code of practice.

My training since the start of my career was in the mental health sector, and I have worked in London, New York and Athens. I have worked in the National Health Service, charitable organisations, and a leading employee assistance program.

The aim is to manage difficult feelings, build confidence and have loving relationships while fulfilling your potential in life, supporting you to make new healthier choices and appreciating your own life’s process.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
