About me

Is anxiety ruling your life? Do you feel like a victim of depression? Are you suffering from relationship issues?

There is nothing more debilitating than being stuck in a rut and not being able to get out. You struggle through the day and go to bed knackered, hoping tomorrow will be a better day. However, you find yourself awake in the middle of the night, while everyone else sleeps, worrying about it and thinking what you are going to do.

If this is you, I have good news for you. Learning to be fully present in your life can make a big difference.

For over a decade, I have seen people’s anxiety reduce dramatically, their depression lift and their relationship issues improve significantly in just a few sessions.

I am an individual and group psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor working in Central London and Sussex, as well as offering counselling ONLINE. Meeting over the internet helps me add flexibility and meet you at times that are convenient for you without having to travel.

Please don’t struggle any longer and take the first step out of your rut. Get in touch today.

Being fully PRESENT in your life is your biggest GIFT.

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
