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.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
