My approach

I have always been interested in people and how we all handle situations differently. I combine a variety of approaches according to clients’ needs, as I believe strongly that no two people or issue can be solved with one process.

I specialise in many areas including anxiety, depression, identity issues, relationships, self-esteem, wellbeing, self-harm and general counselling. I work with adults (individuals and couples) and adolescents.

I have been practising for over a decade and during that time my approach has been influenced by my own self-care and mindfulness practice. I believe that the better the relationship we have with ourselves the better we are able to handle what life throws at us. So, having a toolbox that allows you to help yourself is essential to wellbeing and growth.

Training, qualifications and experience

  • BSc (Hons) Psychology from the University of Westminster
  • Certificate in Counselling & Counselling Skills from Birkbeck University
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from University of East London

After completing my first degree I was advised to get some life experience before embarking on a career in counselling.

I worked in fundraising and PR for a variety of charities until the desire to work one-to-one led me to return to university to study counselling and counselling skills and then a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

While waiting to start this I qualified as a wellbeing facilitator and ran workshops in London and the South East for groups, including job centres and women’s group and this has remained an important part of my work.

Professional affiliations
