About Me

Background and Training

Having worked in education for many years, I decided to follow my passion and train as a psychotherapist and counsellor.

Building on a previous counselling course taken in 2010, I began my psychotherapy training  at Metanoia Institute in West London in 2014, where I worked as a trainee therapist as well as undertaking extensive post graduate academic studies and my own psychotherapy.

I have worked at two community counselling services in London which serve the general public and at a student counselling service at a university. I have also worked in the NHS in a psychiatric hospital.

In private practice I work with clients in both long-term psychotherapy and shorter-term counselling, depending on the client’s individual needs.

My specialist areas include:

Depression
Anxiety and panic attacks
Suicidal thoughts
Self esteem
Childhood abuse
Trauma and PTSD
Eating disorder
Identity issues
Relationship difficulties
Workplace issues
Bereavement

I also work as a Mental Health Mentor with students at two London universities and at an EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) as a counsellor supporting employees of numerous organisations.
