About me

We experience  new challenges at different times in our lives. Some life events can interrupt our being and trigger sadness, pain and confusion. None of us are protected from painful and traumatic life experiences, however, despite how hopeless it feels, it is important to give yourself a chance to feel better. Psychotherapy is an opportunity to look at your life and develop a better understanding of your inner world and find new, healthier ways to cope with everyday challenges and of course painful past experiences and traumas.

I am a qualified psychotherapist and a registered member (055197) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work with adults and couples. I offer counselling from my practice based in Sutton, Surrey (SM1)

I offer weekday, evening and Saturday appointments.The fee agreed between us depends primarily on the time of day we meet. I hold 2 spaces at the reduced fee to work long-term with someone who would otherwise not be able to access therapy due to their financial situation.

I am a BUPA registered provider so, if you have insurance you may be eligible for a course of counselling.

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.
