I'm a SE London based Integrative Counsellor specialising in working with children, young people and their families. I was born and raised in London & Hampshire. I completed my degree in Integrative Counselling from Greenwich University in 2010, and I'm also an accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
My experience of working with young people from new born babies, right through into adulthood, and with a range of complex needs, has given me great knowledge of child development and the ability to engage with young people at varying developmental stages. This has helped me build up positive working relationships with young people which facilitates them in understanding themselves better, and bringing about change.
