About Me

 

Experience

I have a broad range of experience working with adult clients of all ages with a variety of presenting issues including LGBTQA+ and identity issues, workplace and exam stress, anxiety, depression, isolation, bereavement, low self esteem and relationship issues.

I offer private 50 minute sessions remotely via Skype or Zoom on Tuesday – Fridays, and face to face sessions in Wimbledon, South West London.

I have been offering consultations and working privately with clients who present a variety of issues. Depending on availability, I sometimes have space to see clients who may need to pay a reduced rate due to their financial circumstances, such as being a student or being out of employment.

CPCAB Counselling Tutor

I teach Counselling Skills and Theory to adult learners at Kingston-Upon-Thames college who wish to expand their skillset either for personal or professional development, or who are interested in taking the first steps in becoming a qualified Counsellor

Founder of Kingston Counselling Collective

For several years I managed a Counselling Collective alongside a small group of colleagues. We worked closely together to support one another through peer supervision, CPD and a shared workspace in Kingston Upon Thames. I also worked as a practitioner here seeing self-referred private clients before moving to work exclusively online in March 2020

Survivors UK

I offered counselling to male survivors of rape and sexual assault who self referred through the website. If you’d like to know more about Survivors UK then please visit their website  here.

Kingston Carers Network

For several years, I offered counselling to Adult Carers on a voluntary basis and would often encounter themes of isolation, hopelessness and guilt. I would stay alongside the client in their times of despair, and offer both a safe and non judgemental space to help them explore their feelings and move towards an acceptance of their situation.

NHS GP Referred Counsellor

I worked independently at a busy NHS GP’s Surgery with patient referrals that encompassed a wide range of presenting problems, such as low mood, depression and anxiety. I offered a goal-oriented brief therapy model to these patients to provide them with a safe space to offload, with a view to reduce their presenting symptoms.

I also coordinate a Psychosocial and Mental Heath Support team for a large charity.
