I am a fully qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist based in London. I provide help to people who are experiencing emotional difficulties such as: anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, low self-confidence. If you are struggling with some of these emotions maybe a therapist can help. I provide short and long term therapy.
In my work the emphasis is on creating a safe and confidential environment to encourage emotional growth and to allow you to resolve problems and make changes in order to live a more fulfilled life.
My aim is to help you to understand and resolve your difficulties by providing the time and space to reflect on the underlying nature of emotional conflicts. My clinical experience has shown me that this can bring relief and can also opens up the possibility of changing unhelpful patterns which were previously repeated without awareness.
Sometimes an opportunity to talk something through with someone who is trained to listen attentively and objectively, without judging or offering direct advice, can provide a tremendous relief - as we are often able to speak more freely and openly in this situation.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
