Hello! I'm an NCS accredited and BACP registered counsellor. I can provide a safe, open-minded and confidential space for you to reflect on what’s happening and what's happened, find clarity in dark times, and figure out what things might look like moving forward.
When you make contact with me we'll organise a short, no-strings, free phonecall or Zoom so that we can get to know each other a little and organise a first session. After that, if you'd like to continue working together, we can arrange weekly sessions.
Whether you’re hoping to make sense of your life, keen to make changes, or simply looking for a place to be heard and understood, I’ll meet you with warmth, compassion, curiosity and an attitude that’s free of judgement. Together we can explore your world and navigate a path through and out of wherever you find yourself.
My goal is to create, with you, a flexible and comfortable therapeutic space in which your preferences for therapy are acknowledged and built into our work together. I work integratively so I can draw on a range of therapeutic modalities, including person-centred, psychodynamic and existential therapies, along with CBT and acceptance and commitment therapy.
As well as giving me the ability to work with different models of counselling and psychotherapy, my training also means I can, where appropriate, integrate coaching into work with clients. Not everyone wants or needs this, but it does mean that in addition to being able to work with you on exploring your past and your present, I can also help you look at what comes next.
- Qualifications & Experience‣ PGDip Integrative Counselling and Coaching (University of East London)
‣ Foundation Certificate in Counselling Skills (WPF Therapy)
‣ Diploma in Transformational Coaching (Animas)

My core training was accredited by the BACP, and prior to graduating I completed hundreds of hours of client work on clinical placement at a low-cost service in east London, along with plenty of my own personal therapy along the way.
During and beyond that I’ve engaged in professional development courses and workshops which include training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (Cardiff University), Motivational Interviewing (Tavistock and Portman) and Advanced Creativity Coaching (CCA), as well as CPD covering issues such as grief, online and telephone counselling skills, perfectionism, trans awareness, domestic abuse and coercive control, and music performance anxiety.
I’ve also received mentoring training through the charity Help Musicians, and have taken part in their Co-Pilot mentoring scheme for the last two years.
