About me

I am an experienced (with over 15 years experience) and qualified integrative psychotherapist in private practice in Oxford Circus (Central London). Nearest Station is Oxford Circus/ Bond Street / Tottenham Court Road and in Chelmsford (Essex).

I welcome clients who are interested in both short-term (focus oriented, between 6-24 sessions) counselling and long term (24 sessions and more) psychotherapy.

I work with various issues surrounding diversity and difference in particular struggles around race, identity and belonging.

I also work with couples and individuals who are struggling with pregnancy/ birth, becoming new parents, post natal anxiety and depression and finding a new dynamic within relationship(s) after the birth/death of a child. I also have a particular interest with mother/child dynamics.

I also offer the option of working in the outdoors - if this is something that you would be interested in then we can talk more about this in our initial assessment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a holistic approach and therefore pay attention to you, my client as a whole person. I work to encourage you to have an increased awareness of both your mind and body in order for you to develop a deeper and truer sense of yourself, your authenticity and life choice.

I also work with clients struggling with relationship issues, low self confidence, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, post natal depression and work stresses.

For individuals I charge between £55-£90 and couples £80-£100 (depending on the time of day and location) for the initial consultation. The cost and terms for further sessions will be discussed in this session. Therapy is usually once weekly and can be long-term, short-term or open-ended.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
