About Me

As an experienced, senior accredited BACP counsellor and registered UKCP psychotherapist, I bring 15 years of diverse clinical experience to my

practice. Having worked in settings ranging from NHS GP surgeries and community counselling services to university counselling services, I offer a broad perspective and a wealth of expertise. For the past 12 years, I have run my own private practice, providing personalised and compassionate care.

My dual training in integrative and existential therapy, complemented by specialist skills in CBT and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), allows me to tailor my approach to meet your unique needs. My extensive education includes a Doctorate in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling from Middlesex University and an MSc in Integrative Counselling from Greenwich University.

I specialise in supporting women through the challenges of pregnancy and

motherhood, drawing on my doctoral research into postnatal anxiety. My deep

understanding of maternal pyschology enables me to provide empathetic and bespoke therapy for women at various stages of motherhood.

Passionate about psychotherapy training and student development, I lectured and supervised at Regent’s University London for three years, and am currently a teaching consultant and supervisor at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling in London. I am dedicated to fostering the growth and development of the next generation of therapists.

With a commitment to ongoing professional development and a focus on

providing the highest quality care, I am passionate about supporting people on their journey towards greater wellbeing and personal growth.
