I work creatively to gently bring both the mind and body together to understand the deeper conflicts within our unconscious thoughts. I believe in the value of being heard and understood, and that we all deserve to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

About Me

I am a warm and supportive, BACP registered, integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor. Providing you with an inclusive space and valuing your individuality is at the heart of my practice. I'm here to support you to live authentically and find empowerment in your choices. I understand that it can take a lot of courage to reach out, and I offer a warm and compassionate space to explore what might be troubling you.

As a registered counsellor, I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I've worked with a diverse range of clients within both the NHS and private agencies.

I have supported clients struggling with:

  • Trauma
  • Grief
  • Identity and cultural issues
  • Low mood
  • Family issues
  • Eating disorders
  • PTSD
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Abuse
  • Feeling stuck or lost

I also have experience, and welcome, neurodivergent clients.

I am passionate about helping others and believe in the positive impact that counselling can bring to individuals. As an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor my research-based approach includes person-centred, psychodynamic, CBT, gestalt and existential theories which I use to customise and collaborate with your needs and experiences.

My therapy style is collaborative, creative and warm. Inclusion is an important aspect of my work and I aim to create and nurture a trusting space for you to explore, share and find the tools within yourself to overcome obstacles, discover your potential and personal growth.

I attend many relevant courses, seminars and conferences throughout the year (national and international), have regular Supervision and I am fully insured.

Mind Growth Mastery

Long and short term therapy:

I provide counselling for adults 18+ and sessions can be open-ended or of a fixed duration.

Short-term therapy can help to deal with current issues and improve wellbeing in the midst of something that is affecting you at this moment. Longer-term therapy can provide on-going support and can work at a deeper level, with an exploration of one's history, relational dynamics and patterns of behaviour which can facilitate fundamental change within oneself. This is something we can discuss further and what suits you best.

Mind Growth Mastery

Face to face counselling:

My office is based in Epsom and is a minute walk from Epsom train station, with plenty of pay-and-display parking close by. There are regular buses available too.

Mind Growth Mastery

For online sessions:

I work on Zoom, but if you have a preferred platform such as MS Teams, that's absolutely fine, so long as we agree between us that the platform is appropriately secure and confidential. It's really important that you have a quiet, private space, preferably with good internet connection.

Mind Growth Mastery
