About me and my therapy practice


As an Adult Psychotherapist and Child Counsellor I work with adults and children from a variety of backgrounds experiencing a wide range of issues and mental health difficulties.

My approach is integrative. This means that I draw on several approaches used in the psychotherapeutic field (both humanistic and psychodynamic), which enables me to tailor therapeutic work around clients' individual needs.

I offer a calm, safe and confidential space, where clients can explore their feelings, difficulties and experiences within a supportive professional relationship. My way of working is down to earth with warm, open and accepting attitude. It is important for me to recognise client's individual experiences and to treat them with respect and integrity.

In addition, I offer my clients a choice to use creative techniques in therapy such as use of the arts, postcards, clay or sandplay, to name a few.

Alongside my private practice, I have worked as a psychotherapist for  charitable organisations in domestic violence. I have lead and delivered a counselling service in one of the London's borough working with adults, children, couples and families. I have also worked as a Counsellor and Art Therapist in primary and secondary schools as well as in further education (both private and state schools) and as a Psychotherapist in the NHS Foundation Trust.

As an Independent Support provider, approved by several Local Authorities, I delivered specialised therapeutic packages to parents, children and families affected by adoption.

I am a registered member of the BACP and HCPC and accredited member of the UKCP. I have regular supervision with UKCP, BACP registered child & adult supervisors. 

I am DBS checked and have up to date Safeguarding qualification (Adults/ Children).
