About me and my therapy practice


Life can be good, but it can also be messy and painful at times. If you are feeling anxious, stuck, bereft or, in some other way, overwhelmed, talking about it is a good idea. And sometimes it can also help if that conversation is with someone outside your immediate circle. Someone who can focus wholly on you.

As a BSc qualified, BACP-registered therapist, I offer a warm, caring, non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.

I'm trained to look at things differently and help you do the same so that you can live with greater self-understanding, clarity and confidence.

Practice description

I work with clients across a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, relationships, self-esteem, bereavement, trauma and life transitions. My priority is to create a space where you feel listened to and accepted so that you can begin to let go of any limiting beliefs and gain the insights you need to embrace change.

My practice is based in Kensington, London (a three-minute walk from Earl's Court tube station). Currently I am offering sessions online only, but I will be returning to face-to-face counselling as soon as government guidelines allow.

As well as running my private practice, I counsel GP-referred and self-referred clients in two charity settings.

My first session

Research shows that the relationship between client and counsellor is the most important factor in successful therapy.

That's why I offer a 90-minute first assessment session (the cost is the same price as a regular session), so that we can both test the 'fit' between us. This gives you the chance to check whether you feel comfortable and safe with me. At the same time, I can ensure that I am able to offer you the help you need or, alternatively, signpost you to more specialist support.

You can find more information about me and how I work on my website. And if you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
