About Brightwood


There are times when we all face difficulties and need a space to process what is happening to us or begin to face difficulties from the past. I believe that a non-judgemental safe space with carefully developed interventions can enable you to move into a greater sense of wellbeing, authenticity and satisfaction with who you are. Together we can create a way to explore your life and move forward at a pace that works for you. 


Counselling and Coaching together integrate to enable us to understand the past, the present and build your future on firm foundations. 

I am a fully qualified, BACP registered counsellor and fully trained and qualified Coach. I can work with individuals face-to-face in my therapy space in Stratford E15, online via Zoom or via telephone.

Before becoming a therapist I worked in international development globally, the charity sector, the NHS, the City of London and as a primary and secondary teacher and leader. These experiences were all linked to my strong interest in people and how our feelings, thoughts and experiences shape our behaviours, decisions and ultimately our lives. 


I have experience working with:




Addictions including alcohol, drugs and gambling.

Relationship difficulties





LGBTQI++ issues

Domestic abuse


and much more…

LGBTQI++ friendly

Disability friendly

GRT friendly
