Counselling and Psychotherapy

People access counselling for many different reasons, but usually because something is not working or does not feel right. You may be experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, problems in relationships or with family dynamics. Counselling is a safe place where you can explore the issues you are experiencing without judgement and get support.

About me

I have an academic background in literature and languages. As a qualified humanistic counsellor, I draw on existential and Gestalt approaches in my practice.

I began to train as a counsellor after five years working in domestic and sexual violence services like Refuge, where I supported adults from a range of backgrounds who were in crisis. I bring specialist insight about the dynamics of abuse into my counselling practice.

I also worked as a counsellor at the LGBTQ+ mental health charity MindOut for over two years, where I supported clients with diverse gender, sexual, and relationship experiences, particuarly clients of colour.


Issues I have worked include, among others:

  • anxiety
  • loneliness
  • problems in relationships
  • depression
  • gender identity issues
  • eating disorders
  • religious trauma
  • isolation
  • racial trauma

My approach

Usually people come to counselling in distress, with a dilemma or feeling stuck. Perhaps you feel lost or can’t see a way through, which is leading to feelings of hopelessness. As a humanistic counsellor I will try to understand your unique lens on the world to help you to move through the issues you are struggling with.

Often in childhood we create stories about how the world works to make sense of things that have happened to us. At times we apply the logic of these stories in adult life without considering whether they still hold true for us.


Therapy can be a place where you can safely unpack issues that you are not able to work through alone, with guidance from a trained professional. Increasing your awareness of how you see your experiences can open up new options, which ultimately may help to alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety or aimlessness.

I have a certificate in Humanistic Approaches to Counselling from The Metanoia Institute, London and a diploma in Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Brighton. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
