25 Years Experience

I am a BACP registered psychotherapist with over twenty years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. I specialise in person-centered, systemic and brief, solution-focused approaches. I am also a UK Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registered Mental Health Nurse, and I can offer advice on medication as well as mental and physical health related issues. I offer a safe and a non-judgemental space in which you can explore your thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences. My goal as a psychotherapist is to help you to achieve your full potential in life; to let go of any past experiences that may hinder your progress and to explore ways in which you can begin to work towards the future you always wanted. 'The mind is everything. What you think you become.'

I offer face to face councelling and 'walk and talk' therapy in South-London as well as group therapy. I also offer online councelling on Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp and telephone councelling, all at a time convenient for you. Please make any bookings via Harley Therapy Platform, or contact me via the BACP It is good to talk-website. I look forward to hearing from you.
