I am an Integrative Therapist and Trauma Specialist a with 16 years of experience working in private and public sectors. I am a Comprehensive Resource Model and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing trained psychotherapist. My approach promotes significant progress and faster recovery with most common mental health problems such as anxiety, phobia, anger, eating disorder, depression etc. It is quickly effective for processing simple traumas, e.g. car accidents, witnessing something very upsetting, bullying on social media, etc, but it also helps get to the root of the problem of more stubborn behaviours such as anger, addictions or lack of motivation. I work with common issues such as depression, work related stress, grief, divorce, men's issues and intimacy.
Comprehensive Resource Model helps develop resilience and process traumatic events that happen early in life and may be forgotten but still impacting current life. This is particularly helpful when working with complex PTSD or dissociative parts of the self.
My background is in education. Prior to working as a therapist I have been a teacher in comprehensive schools, private schools, schools for children with learning disabilities, and pupil referral units. I am now employed as a Senior Psychotherapist at SOAS University.
I am BACP Accredited and Registered. My work is confidential and non judgmental. My practice is open to people from all sociocultural background regardless of nationality, religion and sexuality.
When we start
We will meet for one or two initial sessions to decide how I can best help you. We will first focus on the best way to improve things quickly for you and we will agree together on the best treatment plan. After our initial sessions you will know whether this is helping. There is no obligation and you can decide to stop the work at any stage.

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 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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
