About me and my therapy practice

Counsellor & psychotherapist  

Accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist working from comfortable and confidential consulting room in London Bridge, SE1 and Borough (Southwark) Experienced therapist working with adults of all ages. As well as working in private practice, I also work for a charity providing therapy for people in London. 

I understand that deciding to seek therapy can be a daunting prospect. Yet therapy can also be an immensely rewarding and beneficial experience to help you understand your difficulties and facilitate change. Like many, you may not be sure what sort of support you need. If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy in the London Bridge and Borough area, and would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your concerns. 

My work is with adults of all ages, offering short-term counselling and longer term, open-ended psychotherapy. I have many years of experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy in different organisational settings. These include working for several years within an NHS psychotherapy department, a charity setting and within a university student counselling service. I have also worked as a counsellor with older adults in a charity, gaining considerable experience of working with older people transitioning into retirement and with issues concerned with aging.

I have extensive experience of working with people who feel 'stuck', isolated and those having difficulty feeling pleasure in some areas of their life - especially within their relationships.

In my private practice, I have built considerable experience of working with issues concerning 'millenials' who are facing some of the difficulties posed by the fast pace of modern life.
