About me

I am a fully qualified and accredited counsellor. I help people struggling with a range of issues including depression and anxiety, panic disorder, bereavement, anger management, low self-esteem, social anxiety, feeling sad, suicidal thoughts, relationship issues or separation/divorce. I combine a variety of approaches to suit your individual needs including psychoanalysis, person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

Sometimes it can be difficult to express ‘real’ emotions as we can often feel guilt or shame - we may even fear disapproval from others. Everybody experiences negative emotions like anger, guilt, jealously or depression and there is nothing ‘bad’ about these feelings, in themselves. They are just your response to certain situations. My aim in working with you is to provide a warm and non-judgmental space where you can freely express and explore your thoughts and feelings, helping you to improve your awareness of yourself.

I currently offer face-to-face, online and telephone counselling. I also offer walk and talk therapy, where the counselling session takes place outdoors walking side by side.

Counselling teenagers - I have worked as a school counsellor at a secondary school in the London borough of Lambeth, counselling teenagers struggling with a range of difficulties including bullying, parent separation, exam stress, self-harm, sexuality, identity issues and those on the autistic spectrum. I have completed Child Protection and safeguarding training and I hold an up-to-date DBS Certificate to work with children and young people. I like to integrate some creative arts approaches with my younger clients including play therapy and art therapy, as I believe this allows a deeper level of understanding to unfold.

Couples counselling - The aim of couples counselling is to help couples reflect on the past and how it operates in the present day. Couples counselling can help you and your partner find ways to communicate in a more constructive way. I have completed a six-month couples counselling course and worked with many couples in private practice over the past five years. Please note couples counselling sessions take place at Wimbledon office only or online via Zoom.

I also have a diploma in Mindfulness which serves to support personal growth and looks at working with stress management through breath work, creative visualisations and meditation. Mindfulness has also been proven to help lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain and improve sleep.

I am registered with Bupa, Vitality and Heath Assured. Please feel free to contact me to access counselling through your health insurance.

I am always happy to have a chat over the phone to discuss your needs and any questions you might have. If you decide to commit to counselling we will meet on a weekly basis either on a short-term or open ended basis. Call me on 07948 2626 77 to book an appointment or send me an email.

Member organisations

BACP
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.
