Most people at some point in their lives and for various personal reasons experience periods of difficulty. It’s easier than ever to get lost and consumed in the day to day stresses of life and often our focus is on everyone else but ourselves. Life can feel overwhelming and during these times we can feel confused, anxious, lonely and trapped.
Counselling provides a safe, impartial and confidential space where time is dedicated just for you. I aim to provide a challenging and nurturing space in which change, healing and growth can occur. Whether you’re experiencing emotional difficulty, anxiety, stress or low mood, struggling to cope with change or just need someone to talk to, you don’t have to face these feelings alone.
I view therapy as a collaborative process in which we focus on your unique goals, values, and needs. I will work with you to help you explore your thoughts and feelings and work through any challenges you are facing with empathy and professional understanding.
I offer both short term and open ended counselling with empathy and professional understanding. Sessions will be carefully tailored to your needs and delivered at a pace that’s right for you.

TRAINING & QUALIFICATIONS
I hold a diploma in therapeutic counselling with an integrative approach. I came to counselling as a second career after having spent nearly 10 years working within the NHS. It was my own personal experiences of therapy that led me to pursue my career in the field.
I have experience working with both vulnerable children and young adults as a School counsellor with Place2Be – A charity counselling service for schools, (http://www.place2be.org.uk), providing therapeutic counselling and emotional support to students to enhance both the mental wellbeing and prospects of each individual child.
In addition to this, I work voluntarily for a Bereavement service based in South West London and alongside my private practice, facilitate group work with victims of domestic abuse.
I am a member of the British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their ethical framework which guides the ethical principles and values at the heart of my practice. I participate in regular supervision, fundamental to the provision of safe, ethical and effective counselling.
