About me

I provide therapy for individuals in a safe, confidential and accepting environment. I work with adults 18 years and up on a short-term or long-term basis depending on your needs.

As a person-centred therapist I believe that as a client you are the expert on your own experiences, and that my role is to facilitate the process of you developing a deeper understanding of yourself.

We all have an in-built ability to grow and develop in order to reach our potential but this can get distorted or interrupted by our life experiences. Counselling is an opportunity to reconnect with our potential and explore what matters most.

The relationship between counsellor and client is fundamental to therapy. I offer an accepting, understanding and genuine relationship, and a space that is yours. Being truly listened to without judgement can be a rare experience, one that counselling can give you.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework. This ensures I work responsibly and professionally, and follow the code of conduct outlined in the framework. For example, I receive regular clinical supervision to critically reflect on my work with clients and all aspects of my counselling practice.

My counselling practice is inclusive of all races, genders, sexual orientations, disabilities and religious beliefs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a professionally trained and qualified person-centred humanistic therapist.

I have nearly a decade of experience providing counselling in different settings. I have worked in further education, young adult wellbeing services, and in mental health charities. I currently offer individual counselling in my private practice in central London and at ELOP, a LGBT charity offering a range of wellbeing services in East London. I also run therapy groups and workshops for clients with serious mental health conditions at a homeless charity in the borough of Westminster.

I completed my postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy at York St John University, a course that is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Following qualification I have completed various training courses to develop my knowledge further, on subjects including Trauma, Domestic Abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Hoarding, Supporting people who hear voices, and Bereavement.

Fees

Initial assessment (one hour)- £40
Weekly counselling sessions (50 minutes)- £50

An initial assessment will allow you to discuss what has prompted you to seek counselling, and to explore how we will work together. It is a mutual assessment.

​During the assessment we will agree a time that is convenient for you and meet at that time on the same day every week for 50 minutes. After six sessions we will review how things are going and agree further sessions depending on this.

Payment is by cash or cheque at the end of every session or on a monthly basis in advance, whichever is best for you.

Further information

I practice in a quiet and comfortable room in Islington, London. The room is on the ground floor of a Georgian Townhouse, a five minute walk from Angel tube station, a 15 minute walk from Old Street station, and a 20 minute walk from Kings Cross St Pancras Station.
