About me

If you are seeking a soft confidential place for your feelings to land, a place where you will not be judged and you are able to be yourself then this is what I can offer.

I have trained as a Humanistic therapist, aim to bespoke support and provide a listening ear to meet the needs of my clients. Working 'Humanistically' enables clients to be received from their intrinsic process to enable them to achieve a more authentic way of life.

I am also a fully trained couples therapist and can offer strategies and methodologies to enhance communication both within and outside the relationship.

I am able to use many different creative methodologies such as stone and sand work, Russian Doll work as well as gestalt three chair work.

I provide a space that is warm and inviting, that is wheelchair accessible and there is plenty of parking and public transport.

In addition to English, I also speak several Indian languages and French.

I will aim to tailor my approach to support the individual when we first meet to offer a bespoke service.


I will be happy to offer the first session for free without commitment.

Please do not hesitate to call or email me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have had a plethora of experience in youth and community services as well as working as a school counsellor. I have been a senior family co-ordinator with awareness of the complexities of family breakdown and domestic violence. 

I am also a fully qualified and experienced couples therapist.

My first degree was in Teaching from Roehampton Institute and my Masters was in Applied Anthropology with Community and Youth Work with a professional qualification in working with youth. I have worked in recent years as part of a discharge team in an acute hospital to facilitate safe discharge from hospital and have experience of having worked with people exposed to many different types of abuse and trauma.

I gained my qualification in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Greenwich University and am BACP registered.

I currently work part time for Sandhurst Counselling Service as an Assessor.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
