About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I’ve been helping young people, adolescents and adults for over 5 years to find strategies to overcome difficult periods in their lives, or help with deeper issues unresolved from their past, such as childhood experiences, family problems or traumatic events.

How I work

No two clients’ issues are the same and my approach is to find the best and most appropriate way of helping each individual, finding that balance together and at a pace that suits each client. 


I usually offer sessions at my home in London SW14, although due to COVID-19 restrictions I am also offering video or telephone counselling, both of which work well.


I work with adults and young people from age 11 upwards, and charge £60 per session.

What happens next?

If you would like to enquire further, I offer a free telephone consultation where you can get a clearer idea of how we might work together and what you can expect from counselling.

Please use the contact form below or call me on the number provided and I will get straight back to you about scheduling a free informal chat and go from there.

My focus

I help people with different problems they are experiencing in life such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, suicidal thoughts, work-related/redundancy, loss and grief, trauma, body image, alcohol and drug dependency, childhood abuse, and other worries more specific to them as individuals.


I also have extensive experience in helping young people with issues such as abuse, anger, body image, bullying, eating problems, exam stress, grief, school problems, self-harm, sleep problems and suicidal feelings.


Why try counselling?

Therapy provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk to a trained professional about your issues and concerns. Your therapist will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and of others.

A counsellor will not give you their opinions or advice or prescribe medication. They will help you find your own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems.
