I became a counsellor because I am curious about people and what makes us who we are.
I’m a trained journalist who works in the charity sector and I started my counselling training at the Minster Centre in North West London.
I went on to study person-centred counselling at City Lit and completed a BACP-accredited professional diploma in integrative counselling at the Mary Ward Centre. I’ve also completed training in bereavement, shame, short term counselling, complex PTSD and working with trauma.
I have worked as a counsellor at a bereavement service in Kentish Town, offering long and short term counselling to bereaved clients from a range of backgrounds and ethnicities. I also worked as a counsellor in the NHS at a GP practice in Putney. As part of a primary care team, I provided short term therapy to clients with complex needs.
I’m a registered member of the BACP and follow their code of ethics. I believe that people from all backgrounds can benefit from counselling and am committed to helping this happen by offering reduced fees for people on low incomes.
