How counselling can help

When we are feeling distressed or lost, having someone to talk to can bring clarity and enormous relief.

Counselling can open up deep insight into ourselves and our struggles, and help us to find the inner strength and resources to get through difficult situations. 

I work with individuals who may be looking for support to work through difficult or intrusive emotions, feelings of internal conflict and stuckness or another psychological challenge. My aim is to help you get to the bottom of issues and process whatever is troubling you - both emotionally and intellectually - in order to move forward and enjoy a fuller and happier, more fulfilling life.

My working model Transactional Analysis offers a useful framework to explore any challenges that you may be facing, with empathy and self-respect. It is particularly helpful for those wishing to understand areas of difficulty that keep re-emerging and find a way to break unhelpful patterns that may be holding you back.

I base my work on the belief that we are all fundamentally good and wanting to do our best.  


About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (DipCouns), Personal Development Coach and Psychotherapist in advanced clinical training.

I run a private counselling and psychotherapy practice in East London. Alongside my  practice, I work with the mental health charity Mind and a counselling service in South East London. I am an honorary psychotherapist within a trauma service in the NHS.

I am experienced in a broad range of areas including anxiety and stress, depression, relationships and grief. I have a strong interest in relationships, attachment and trauma. 


I am a member of a number of professional bodies – including the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and UK Council for Psychotherapy – and I abide by their codes of ethics and professional practice.
