About me

Established in 2004, I’m a highly experienced psychotherapist offering counselling services in the City of London, who will help you navigate personal matters such as low self-esteem, troubled relationships and anxiety and through crises like divorce and bereavement. Or to delve deeper into your life, gain insights and understand more about who you are.

I also offer a combination of coaching and psychotherapy for professional problems including career dilemmas, imposter syndrome and bullying. In a supportive and pragmatic way I will help you to unravel the issues, relocate the bigger picture when you’re caught up in detail, remind you who you are when you’ve lost sight of yourself, empower you to make change and help you to plan the best course of action.

Training, qualifications & experience

As a client myself, I found that psychotherapy not only helped me feel safe, accepted, supported, understood, acknowledged and appreciated but also calmer and more positive. It gave me a stronger sense of myself and my place in the world.

Encouraged by my own therapist and mentor, in 2000 I began the transition from client to psychotherapist. I trained in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy and have taken post-graduate studies in Solution Focused Therapy, Family Constellations, Transactional Analysis, transformational dying and death and trauma therapies including Somatic Experiencing. I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and Coaching Division.

Member organisations

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
