I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor & Coach offering one-to-one sessions in  London.

Alongside this, I am a Social Worker with extensive experience working with looked after children, foster carers and adoptive families.

I am passionate about supporting individuals to thrive, to feel empowered and motivated to achieve their individual goals and for this reason I trained to be an Integrative Counsellor and Coach.

My mantra is ” Me before you and you before anyone else”. this concept basically means your individual needs matter and need to be prioritised for you to be the best version of you for others, and most importantly for yourself.

As an Integrative Counsellor I have the understanding and knowledge of different modalities, I can use a wide range of interventions and techniques to support my clients. However, my style of working is heavily underpinned by the person-centred and solution focused approach. I focus on developing a relationship with my clients and creating a safe, non-judgemental space for clients to identify, discuss, explore and reflect on their issues, problems and desired goals. I identify that the client is an expert in their own needs and through listening, reflective conversation, questioning and collaborative planning my role is to assist the client through a journey of acceptance and change.

As a Social Worker, I am also passionate about different attachment styles and overcoming childhood trauma. As adults, despite early life and childhood experiences, i believe individuals can work towards building secure attachments in their adult relationships and healing from childhood trauma.
