About me and my therapy practice

I have over fifteen  years experience of working face to face with clients. 

I started my career working in a treatment centre in central London specialising in addiction, primarily problematic alcohol use. I have worked in community alcohol services and I currently work as an employee assistance program therapist for a large company. Working with addiction opened the door to working with many other issues.

 I have experience of facilitating various therapeutic groups as well as working face to face.

The main therapeutic approach I use is person centred which emphasises the importance of the relationship between the counsellor and client. I am warm and genuine which has been fed back to me over the years.

I also believe that our past strongly influences our future In particular our relationship with ourself and others. My counselling approach is flexible and not a one size fits all. 

Most recently I have worked offering solution focused brief therapy, psychological first aid and trauma stabilisation.

If you are interested in working with me I encourage you to call under no obligation. This will help you to get a better sense of me and help you to decide if you would like to meet for an initial assessment. I can also answer your questions and discuss what you would like to change.

Practice description

I am offering online and telephone sessions only.

My hours are very flexible and I value the importance of your therapy sessions taking place at a time and day that fits in with your schedule.

My first session
