About me and my therapy practice

I have been qualified as a person-centred counsellor since 2015. I completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology and English Literature back in 2003.

I have had further counselling training in the areas of bereavement and sexual abuse. Although I am also trained as a play therapist and have worked as a counsellor with children and teenagers, I am choosing to work only with adults at this time. I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and with a range of presenting issues. I am passionate about attending to diversity issues in my work where appropriate, as I know that our various social positions can affect our experiences and viewpoints, as well as have implications for our healing processes. 

I believe deeply in person-centred theory which is about valuing the personal experiencing of clients in order to promote therapeutic change and listening with a non-judgmental approach. In addition I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the heart of any therapeutic experience. I work as a counsellor because I enjoy supporting clients in achieving their personal therapy goals and I am honoured to be part of their journey.

I am also a qualified IAPT Well-being Practitioner and have worked with children, young people and their parents offering support with anxiety, low mood and emotional regulation. 

I do Employee Assistance Programme counselling with diverse clients from all around the world.

I have received training on single session therapy with Windy Dryden and can offer one off sessions to those who are interested. 

I have special interests in Black and Mixed race issues as well as identity issues in general. I also have a special interest in working with single women’s issues. I consider intersectionality in my work and I do monthly CPD.
