I am a qualified and accredited practitioner providing both short-term counselling and long-term psychotherapy in the Borough of Richmond Upon Thames.
Whilst I work with a wide range of issues common to people seeking therapy such as depression, low self esteem and bereavement for example, I also specialise in two areas. Firstly, I work with people coming to terms or living with long-term or life-threatening health conditions and their friends and families and secondly I support those struggling with work-related issues such as stress, anxiety, career pressures and work-life balance.
My experience includes working for the mental health charity Mind and Royal Holloway University and running a telephone-based counselling service for an EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) provider. I also spent several years supporting those affected by a cancer diagnosis at The Mulberry Centre, West Middlesex Hospital and Maggieâ€™s Centre in Charing Cross Hospital, Hammersmith.

I am a registered member of UKCP, a member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) as well as being an accredited clinical member of the Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association (UPCA).
