About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced qualified counsellor in the Clapham/Brixton area working with adults face-to-face and online. I provide an accepting and empowering relationship, working collaboratively to explore what’s brought you to therapy, your hopes and your fears.

I specialise in working with trauma, sexual and gender identity, self-esteem, loss, bereavement, anxiety and depression.

My therapeutic practice is defined by a relational way of being built on warmth, creativity, compassion, integrity and humour. I stay alongside you, to support you in setting the pace and tone of counselling. I believe therapy can be a space to focus on understanding your problems and barriers, to explore how you experience the world, enabling you to understand the internal conflicts and unhelpful patterns which might hold you back.

Building a greater sense of awareness regarding your feelings can be painful to start with, but with gentle witnessing can often create a sense of freedom to enable new choices in your life.

I have a postgraduate degree in Humanistic Psychotherapy and have been practicing for 5 years. Previously to working privately, my experience includes bereavement counselling within a hospice setting and counselling within an LGBTQ Mental Health Charity.

My first session

The first session is a no-obligation meeting and opportunity for us to get a sense of each other.

The therapeutic relationship is fundamental to the success of counselling, therefore it's so important you feel safe, held and supported during our time together.

The session will focus on what's bringing you to therapy, why now and what your hopes are for our work together.
