About me

I have been interested in the healing process for many years and originally trained as a clinical reflexologist in 2002. For 15 years I worked for South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust London as a complementary therapist.

I have worked in a variety of settings offering counselling and psychotherapy for many different conditions. For the past few years I have been offering short and long-term therapy with The Mulberry Centre, Kingston Women's Centre and Kingston iCope, Psychological Therapies Service. I am an Anxiety UK approved therapist trained to work with anxiety disorders, and also provide individual specialist support for university students.

Having a Master's degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy means I have the knowledge to draw on the many models of psychotherapy that have become popular in treatment today. I have continued to update my knowledge ever since and have undertaken further training in CBT, working with anxiety, guilt and shame, body dysmorphic disorder, goals in psychotherapy, disability equality, safeguarding adults from abuse, meeting partners needs and couples in conflict.

I have particular experience with issues around different forms of abuse, and also pregnancy complications, infertility, and perinatal loss. My special interest and ongoing study is on the subject of the mind-body connection and treating the client holistically.
