About me

Often the most difficult part of entering into psychotherapy or counselling is simply making the decision to start. If you have found your way to this site, you are at least considering therapy. This is a positive first step! It shows real strength to face life's difficulties by looking at them straight on.

At the heart of therapy is the relationship between you and your therapist so it's important that you find someone who you like and trust. I hope that the information found here will help you make the right choice.

I am a BACP registered psychotherapist and counsellor in London Bridge,  with 15+ years in private practice. I work with adults and offer weekly sessions to individuals on either a short-term (typically 6-24 sessions) or a long-term (24+ sessions) basis. I offer both in person and online sessions. 

Psychotherapy and counselling can provide an opportunity for you to think and talk in confidence about personal or emotional difficulties that may be concerning you. It is a time and space to examine, clarify and understand your concerns, and to explore and develop more effective ways of dealing with them. My role as a therapist is to provide support in this process of exploration, understanding and change.

While there are no guarantees of what you will experience, you may find that being listened to by a qualified professional, having the space to explore and time for reflection will help you to regain a sense of meaning and to manage your life better.

If you would like to arrange a free 15 minute chat by phone or book an initial consultation in person/online, please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at The School of Psychotherapy & Counselling Psychology (SPCP) at Regent's College in London, completing the MA in Psychotherapy & Counselling, the PGDip in Psychotherapy & Counselling and the Foundation Course in Psychotherapy & Counselling.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to the BACP code of ethics, which stresses the importance of a safe and reliable setting, confidentiality and continual professional development.

In addition to my private practice, I have worked in a variety of settings - at Kings College Hospital working with patients and their family and friends; at MIND, a non-profit mental health organisation; and at the Counselling and Wellbeing Service at London Metropolitan University. I have had the benefit of working with a wide range of issues and with different community groups (in terms of age, nationality/culture, gender, sexuality, beliefs, health). While my private practice involves working with adults and young people (18 years & older), I have also worked with primary school children as a volunteer counsellor at The Place2Be.

Member organisations

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.
