About me and my therapy practice

Life can get really difficult sometimes - we may know why we’re finding things hard, but we may not and that's OK too. Through therapy we can explore what's happening for you and find a way through together. We can look at what’s on your mind and what it’s like being you as well as the role your past might have played. We can go at your pace and you’ll decide what you want from coming to see me.

I work sensitively and respectfully with all ethnicities, cultures and sexualities. I offer both long term support to clients wishing to explore their feelings in depth and short-term work if you’re wanting to address a specific problem. I also offer low cost sessions for those on Universal Credit and those who have no access to public funds.

Practice description

In person sessions take place in Hammersmith (West London) or we can work together on-line if that feels more comfortable for you, from wherever you are. 

I have a PGDip in Humanistic Counselling and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

You can arrange a consultation with me by emailing me at:, or if you prefer just give me a call or send me a text on 07841 464 706.

My first session

First, I ask clients to come for an initial 50 minute assessment session. This is your chance to tell me, in confidence, what has led you to consider therapy.

It’s also an opportunity for us to get to know each other and to see how you feel about working with me. If you decide to continue, I can offer you weekly sessions in which you are free to be entirely open and honest.
