About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor in Victoria, Central London, registered with the BACP, with over twenty years experience. After discussion with you, I use different approaches to help with your concerns such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self esteem, family or relationship issues, anger, work issues, bereavement, or other problems. I offer a concession of a free initial session.

This can include helping you to :

  • look at how your past experiences affect your current  relationships, feelings and behaviour;
  • identify and change negative thoughts about yourself; contact and explore difficult feelings; and become aware of more aspects of yourself and of your potential.

Counselling and Psychotherapy offer a safe, supportive way of looking at personal issues.

I believe that we are each a unique and complex expression of life, and I will work with you to help you express more of your reality.

Member organisations


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.

Further information

I have a special interest in working with dreams, and will encourage clients to explore their dreams if they wish to do so. In my experience, our night-time dreams can often give us information about our current states which can be valuble in working in the therapy.
