I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, providing a safe, supportive and professional environment for people to explore their difficulties and ultimately make positive changes in their lives.

I am an eclectic practitioner, meaning I draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches, which enables me to effectively meet the individual needs of the clients I work with.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and an Advanced Practitioner member of the Addiction Professionals network, and adhere to their ethical frameworks.


I have worked in the mental health field for over 10 years and started my private practice in 2016. Alongside this, I have also worked at The Priory's Lifeworks hospital in Woking for six years. During my time at Lifeworks, I occupied the roles of Senior Therapist and Eating Disorder Programme Lead, where I helped to deliver comprehensive programmes for eating disorder and addiction treatment, working with individuals, groups and family members.

I have previous experience in both private and community based settings in the addiction treatment field.

I have recently started working with Lou Lebentz's online Trauma Thrivers community, with whom I am looking to promote using a trauma-informed approach to mental health issues.

As well as my work in mental health, I am also able to draw on my considerable experience working as a commercial professional, during which time I held a variety of senior management roles, working with and leading teams of people to achieve change and growth targets in industry.
