About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapy and counselling practitioner in individual adult therapy and couples therapy based in London WC1 and Rochester ME1.

I am able to assist with relationship issues, depression, anger, self esteem, sex related issues, trauma, and bereavement to name but a few. I have many years of experience of providing therapy online.

I am a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

I am also a founding partner of Sail to Clarity (www.sailtoclarity.com) that runs personal and professional development workshops and trainings on a modern boat on the River Medway.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have trained in humanistic integrative counselling at CPPD and in integrative psychotherapy and counselling at Regents College, London. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy from Regents College, and a Masters in Psychotherapy & Counselling from the University of Wales.

I have previously worked at Mind and the Medical Foundation for the Victims of Torture.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

Wheelchair access is available at my Kings Cross practice only.
