About me and my therapy practice

Perhaps you are experiencing low mood swings on a regular basis? Or heightened anxiety? Maybe you feel isolated and overwhelmed? Or there may be things from your past that are burdening you that you would like to explore in a secure space with a compassionate listener ? Whatever your reasons, I am here to work alongside you.

I hold a BACP accredited Diploma in Gestalt Counselling and a Certificate in Humanistic Counselling. 

I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their Code of Ethics and Practice. My work is regularly supervised by BACP registered supervisors.  I hold professional insurance and am DBS checked.

As well as seeing clients privately, I work on a voluntary basis as a  therapist for a London-based women's health charity.

I also work as a Specialist Mentor for  University Students.

In addition to my counselling qualifications, I hold a B.A. Honours Degree in Modern Languages so if  you are more comfortable speaking in French or Spanish, I am happy to accommodate this in our sessions. 

I also hold a  Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and  have worked as a teacher for many years in London schools, gaining an in-depth understanding of  issues facing teaching staff , young people and their parents and carers. I continue to teach on a part-time basis.

Practice description

It takes courage to come into counselling and you have taken an important first step. I can offer you a safe, warm, non-judgemental and confidential space where you can explore your feelings and any aspects of your life where you may feel stuck. I believe that the counselling relationship is a collaborative one and I look forward to working with you towards your self-awareness and healing. 

My first session

The  first session can be daunting but it is a  good opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to talk about what has brought you to counselling.  I charge £30 for the first session . If we feel that we are a good match for future work together, all subsequent sessions are £55.
