About me

From my private practice in London, WC1H and remotely by phone or video call I offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), incorporating mindfulness and compassion focused approaches; Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT); and psychodynamic counselling, for a range of problems.  These include depression, anxiety, phobias and panic attacks, difficulty with assertiveness, procrastination, low self esteem, confidence problems, relationship issues, shyness, isolation, obsessions and compulsions, prolonged grief symptoms, sleep problems, coping with illness, eating disorders, and stress.

The first meeting is an assessment in order to understand what is causing concern.  I then usually see people weekly for 6 to 20 sessions, although at times, less or more sessions may be what is needed or wanted.

Fees and appointment times for sessions will be agreed at the assessment.  Concessional rates are available for students and those on low income or unemployed.

I am a registered accredited member of the BACP and a member of the BABCP and abide by their codes of ethics.

I am a Bupa Recognised Mental Health Therapist

Member organisations

BACP

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.
