About me

I am an experienced therapist accredited by the BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies) and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).  I currently work for the NHS and in private practice offering a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approach for depression, anxiety disorders such as panic, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, impulse disorders and post traumatic stress disorder.  Based in Balham/Tooting, I offer an assessment of your psychological difficulties with an individually based formulation and treatment plan.  I believe it is important to establish a secure relationship with  clients drawing on my qualifications in Person Centred and Existential Psychotherapy to help you create change in your patterns of thinking and behaving and acceptance of your emotions.

Training, qualifications & experience

My initial training both at City University and Regents College was in Person Centred and Existential Counselling and Psychotherapy and more recently I have completed a PGDip in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Royal Holloway University.  My experience is wide-ranging and eclectic with specific expertise in the managment of Depression and Anxiety. So from an Existential perspective your problems might relate to a lack meaning or purpose in your life. However, using CBT techniques I will be able to focus on how negative thoughts and unhelpful behaviours impact on your feelings both physically and emotionally. Using these and other skills I can help you overcome the difficulties in your life.
I have also completed training in Behavioural Couples Therapy and can work with you and your partner when you are having difficulties in your relationship.

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.


British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies

The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.

BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.


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.

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.
