About me and my therapy practice

My counselling room is located in SE18. I am accessible from Woolwich (mainline and DLR), Plumstead, Blackheath, Lewisham, Greenwich, Canning Town and Stratford stations. There is parking on surrounding roads and I am located close to local bus services.


I have a particular specialism in working with eating disorders as I have been facilitating a support group which works in partnership BEAT a national charity supporting eating disorders since the late 90s. 

I am also a qualified teacher and university lecturer. 

How I work: I will work with you to explore your feelings and emotions in a safe and confidential non-judgemental setting. I believe that sometimes our present conflicts and how we respond to situations and relate to others can be influenced by our past. So we may therefore spend time examining past relationships and your childhood experiences. Early sessions will focus on building a working alliance so you feel able to share what may be troubling you and we will agree a contract for how we will work together and when we will meet. You control the content and pace of the sessions and together we will consider what choices you want to make and what direction you want your life to follow. It might also mean you coming to terms with painful situations from your past. Sometimes the sessions will be difficult and you may feel worse before you begin to feel better. 

Each session lasts 50 minutes and we usually meet weekly at the same time. Each session costs from £45 per session.
