About Me

Free 15-minute consultaion

Do you feel that life's stresses, anxieties, and difficulties are weighing you down?

Working with me, you will explore what is getting you stuck in life so you can move forward, heal, and evolve. I offer support in an empathetic, non-judgemental way. I have experience helping those with various issues in a safe therapeutic space, allowing you to explore your aims and thoughts. Together we will explore your inner strengths and resources, building on these to improve your general well-being and self-growth.

You will have a confidential space where you can talk about concerns and problems. Going into counselling might be hard for some, so I will try my best to put you at ease and assist you through the process.

I offer integrative counselling, which is person-centred and psychodynamic. These approaches are uniquely tailored to you by looking at the present, which can lead to looking at your history and linking it to current concerns.

I'm a  member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Based in London, I have worked with teens over 16 to mature adults. 


Walk and talk therapy might be an option for some near me in South London at Clapham Common, Tooting Bec Common and Streatham Common. For others, I offer face-to-face counselling online worldwide or by telephone.


I specialize in stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement,  self-esteem, the inner critic, the inner child, loss, growing up in a dysfunctional home, co-dependency, sexuality, relationships, Work related problems,  ADHD and obstacles to well-being.


I can work with those in 12-step recovery programs for addictions. Or for those concerned with alcohol, substances, work,  sex, spending, fitness, video games and social media.


Other areas I work with are Inner child work, the inner critic and growing up in or having a dysfunctional family. 

Inner child work is an approach to recognizing and healing childhood trauma. It recognizes that our behaviours as an adult stem from our childhood experiences. Inner child work focuses on addressing our unmet needs by reparenting ourselves. This kind of self-discovery helps us understand our behaviours, triggers, wants, and needs. 


Inner critic refers to an inner voice that judges, criticizes, or demeans a person, whether or not self-criticism is objectively justified. A highly active inner critic can affect one's emotional well-being and self-esteem. 


I am keen on mindfulness and can integrate grounding techniques into the sessions.

Taking the first steps might be challenging, so I offer a 15-minute free consultation that can help you with any concerns you may have. Offering you a safe space without judgment. We can discuss what you may want to talk about and the number of sessions. 

Sessions are £75 for 50 minutes, and I have a few spaces for low-income or financial difficulty on a sliding scale. Sessions are weekly at the same time.



Training and qualifications

I am qualified with a CPCAB diploma in counselling and psychotherapy from London Southbank University. I have Cruse Bereavement support training.

I have worked for NHS Counselling for adults at GP practices. As a student counsellor for teens and young adults, also for Cruse bereavement support.

Before counselling, I had years of experience and a successful career in hospitality management with the ability to get on with people from all walks of life. Over the years, I have lived in several countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. I have engaged with many different cultures professionally and personally,  furthermore being open-minded and culturally sensitive with those I meet.
