About me and my therapy practice

In this difficult time during the Covid19 pandemic I am able to offer clients therapy either on - line or by telephone (mobile) .


I am an experienced therapist who works in both Private and NHS settings and I have also worked with Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP's).

I am able to offer online counselling via ZOOM, and telephone counselling in a private confidential setting. 

I see my role as a therapist as helping you to find your own solutions to problems and develop your own coping strategies to manage difficult situations in your life. The work that we do together in therapy will hopefully equip you to continue to make positive change in your life, once your therapy has come to an end. 

As well as an overall Humanistic, Person Centered approach in my counselling work with you, I use Solution Focused approaches, and where helpful, some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques.

I also have experience and a growing interest in  the use of Mindfulness in my practice . I have completed an eight week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course and I am interested in the work of Jon Kabat Zinn, the founder of MBSR.

For fellow counselling professionals, I am also an experienced Supervisor able to work with therapists individually or in a group setting with experience of supporting trainee and qualified counsellors in both Private, University or Organisational settings.

Practice description

My practice is currently on-line and telephone based set in a confidential therapy room in the Borough of Greenwich, London.

About me and my therapy practice

During this difficult time of the Covid19 pandemic I am able to offer supervisees appointments on - line via ZOOM, or by telephone (mobile)

 I am an experienced Supervisor able to work with therapists individually or in a group settings with experience of working with Employee Assistance Programmes and trainee and qualified counsellors in both Private, University or Organisational settings.

As a Supervisor I see my role as supporting you in your work with clients  in a safe and confidential space. A place to explore ethical dilemmas, challenges and uncertainties in your work  and just as important , it is also a place to acknowledge the good work that you do with your clients.

Being a counselling professional can be rewarding and at times hard work and your self care is an important aspect of your supervision.  The time we have together is also space for you to explore how you look after yourself as well as your clients and a place to build on your resilience and energy.
