It is very brave to take the first and reach out, a lot of individuals find this the hardest step. Life is sometimes full of difficulties and uncertainties, we can feel overwhelmed by stress, loss, addictions, problems in our workplace or home life to name a few. One of these may be the reason you find yourself on my page today. I offer both counselling generally shorter term and psychotherapy to enable you to understand yourself on a deeper level, improve emotional intelligence and move forwards from wherever you are aiding you to finding the answers within. Clients come to see me with a range of issues including but not limited to; depression, burnout, stress management, panic attacks, generalised anxiety disorders, body dysmorphia, marriage/relationship problems, eating disorders, anxiety, anger problems, gender issues including those transitioning to the opposite birth sex, childhood trauma, rape, adult trauma, living with a mental health diagnosis or awaiting a psychological referral. Furthermore, I work with clients confidence issues, redundancy, domestic abuse and work related stress.

I also work with clients with an array of complex mental health diagnoses such as EUPD Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorders and Eating Disorders. I have good connections to local Psychiatrists and other support organisations should you need these alongside therapy, for example if you would like to change medication. I always work with the individual and how you experience your mental health as this will be different and unique for each person. For some your diagnosis may be helpful to you and for other individuals this can be very traumatic and viewed as unhelpful. For those with recent diagnoses and living with lifelong mental health, I will empower you and help you to see yourself and to thrive and reach your personal potential or life goals, instead of perhaps the sense of surviving which can often occur when life is stressful or with a recent diagnosis or unwell period.

About me and my therapy practice


Couples Therapy 

Are you a couple who feel you have lost your way and are not enjoying each other as you once did? Are you unable to communicate, be heard or perhaps don’t feel fully seen? Maybe you are trying to get over an infidelity, health problem or finding it difficult to support each other. Maybe there are problems and stresses of raising a family or different cultural or religious view points? Is there limited intimacy perhaps? Problems can occur at any stage in any relationship whether you are in your twenties or seventies.

There are so many reasons why couples seek relationship therapy. With the right support you can often find a new lease of life in your partnership or marriage. In couples therapy I will be there to facilitate and help improve communication, giving you both the space to be heard. I will remain neutral and non-biased, helping you both feel valued, heard and respected.

I am here to empower you as an individual and as a couple in finding the right changes for you both. You may look at my photo and think I don’t have experience of a 30 year marriage which I don’t to date however I can assure you I have lots of life experience in regards to relationships and difficulties that can arise in relationships.

I ensure all parties are heard and remain neutral and non-biased, helping you feel respected and held at all times. I work with couples who are going through IVF, loss of a child, hurt from affairs, sex problems, exploring an open relationship and dealing with conflicts to name a few. I also enjoy working and supporting couples on sex differences, intimacy, and couples who want to enhance their sex life. I work with same sex couples as well as couples from the LGBT community. I feel passionately about understanding our desires and allowing ourselves to be whoever we wish to be in relation to ourselves and others.

Practice description

How I work And Background 

I can assure you I will walk your path with you with great care, compassion, understanding, and most importantly at your own pace.

Life can evoke a variety of emotions and struggles. I always work with my clients and think it’s important for you to hold onto the fact that you know yourself better than anyone. I work with the clients across Kent, London, Cambridge and Essex. Alongside my practice as a therapist I enjoy lecturing in specialist areas & run CPD training events for counsellors and corporate companies.

As well as my private practice I have worked for several Universities. I have also worked at MIND and an educational college with both teenagers and adults. I am integrative practitioner and have an extensive knowledge of a wide range of approaches. My work includes several psychological theories including the Psychodynamic approach, Humanistic & Person Centred approach. I also where appropriate draw upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and the Existential Approach. I feel privileged to have trained integratively as I feel passionately about the uniqueness of each individual. One style of therapy may be suitable for you but not as much for another individual. Being an integrative practitioner, I can ensure that the therapeutic approach is flexible to suit you. 

I work alongside you in a non-judgemental, friendly approach to nurture and empower you in facing battles, working through complex issues, increasing self-awareness, utilising, and recognising your potential and strengths and setting goals for the future. It can be difficult to understand the root cause of your problems and I work alongside my clients in a holistic manner and safe environment to help facilitate this.
