About Me

Experience

I have a broad range of experience working with clients aged 19 – 66 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 1 on 1 counselling sessions in Kingston-Upon-Thames on Weekdays, Evenings and Saturdays.

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.

Founder of Kingston Counselling Collective

I manage a counselling collective alongside several colleagues. We work closely together to support one another through peer supervision, CPD and a shared workspace in Kingston Upon Thames. I also work as a practitioner here seeing self-referred private clients

Survivors UK

I offer counselling to male survivors of rape and sexual assault who self refer 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.
