About me

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist providing both short and long term options for individuals. I run my own private practice where I see clients from my consulting room in Walthamstow, London. I also offer online and telephone sessions.

I believe that every individual holds the key to unlock their own answers and find their path. Therefore I adopt a client led approach that encourages and empowers individuals to make their own discoveries through the work. Ultimately it is the strength of our therapeutic relationship that will allow this understanding and subsequent changes to take place.

I understand how daunting it can be reaching out to a therapist. Now you are here I would encourage you to take that next step to arrange an initial consultation. This will allow you to get a feel for the therapeutic process and how it might help you. Following this you can then decide if it is right for you and whether you would like to continue.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am also a Registered Member with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

I have previously volunteered as a counsellor at The Centre for Better Health in Hackney, a community-based charity that supports wellbeing and recovery from mental illness. I have also volunteered at The Awareness Centre in Clapham.

Throughout my time as a therapist I have been fortunate enough to work with individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures on an array of matters. I have fully appreciated being allowed into each of my clients lives and experiences, learning a lot from them along the way as well.

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.
