Types of therapy I offer
I am a fully qualified integrative psychotherapist. This means that I apply skills and understanding from more than one psychological theory. My approach is grounded in a Rogerian understanding, and informed by attachment theory as well as two key humanistic modalities – transactional analysis and Gestalt theory – which bring a creative dynamic to my work with clients.
Together in our sessions, we’ll explore your internal world to better understand the patterns that might be holding you back or causing you to suffer. At times this will involve looking back at past experiences and wonder about current ones. Sometimes I use creative tools and approaches in sessions: this can be very powerful for clients to explore their feelings and experiences in a different way and perhaps draw new meanings.
I welcome adults of all ages for individual counselling. I work with people from many different cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds. I am committed to working in an anti-oppressive way, and recognise the ways in which societal discrimination and injustices affect some communities in particular and can have a significant impact on people’s wellbeing and mental health.
Training, qualifications and experience
- Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from Spurgeon’s College in London
- BA (Hons) in International Relations from the University of Birmingham
I have experience in counselling adults in short and long-term psychotherapy, as well as working with adolescents and children.
Before becoming a psychotherapist I worked for an international development charity, with particular focus on women who have experienced gender-based violence. I have also worked with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities both in the UK and abroad.
As a qualified psychotherapist, I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Fees and availability
- Sessions are £70 each.
- The minimum number of sessions is 10. After 10 sessions, we can extend by another 10 or we can agree for the work to be open-ended.
- My working days are Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.
- I offer a limited number of online sessions, so do get in touch to find out about current availability.
I offer a free 15-minute phone conversation before meeting in person. This is a chance for you to hear what I sound like, to discuss your availability, any accessibility requirements you might have and for me to answer any initial questions you might have.
After this we will meet in person for a full 50 minutes session in which I will explore why you’ve come for counselling and for you to get an idea for how I work.
