About me and my therapy practice

I have significant experience of supporting diverse people, with a wide range of life challenges. These include relationships issues, domestic abuse including emotional, sexual, financial and physical abuse. Bereavement and loss, as well as work related stress. I am currently a Welfare Officer (specialising in mental health) with over ten years experience, of providing emotional and practical support for more than 1,500 union members based on a local authority site. I also support people with anxiety, stress and depression. I am a qualified Person Centred therapist and I have been counselling for over ten years. I trained at the renowned Metanoia Institute in Ealing. I have extensive experience of working for the Woman’s Trust (an agency that specialises in recovery from domestic abuse). During my time there, I was privileged to support women from various class and ethnic backgrounds, including high profile clients. I have a keen interest in relationships and this passion inspired me to complete additional training as a couple’s counsellor. Additionally, I volunteered for a bereavement organisation for over 2 years. I am also interested in group work and have completed further studies at Metanoia.

My first session

I am aware that making a decision to see a counsellor can be difficult, and as such, I am happy to offer a half price exploratory session. During our time together we will explore your life, where you are, where you want to be and most importantly, what you think is holding you back.
