About me

My aim is to help people create rewarding and fulfilling lives in which they feel able to reach their goals and be their true selves.

I believe that we are all trying to build better lives for ourselves, but due to the lasting impact of past experiences, the unhelpful habits we develop over time, and the fear, self-judgement and self-criticism that we often carry round with ourselves, we can end up feeling stuck and finding it difficult to move forward.

I believe that personal growth is possible for everyone and make use of different techniques and approaches from within both counselling and coaching (including compassion-focused therapy, solution-focused therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy) to support clients in moving forward in their lives.

In working together, we will have the opportunity to explore and understand the relationship you have with yourself, identify and address negative thought and behavioural patterns, and set and begin working towards goals and aspirations for what you want to achieve.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am professionally trained and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I hold over 10 years’ experience of working in different roles within mental health settings, including acute psychiatric settings and the charity sector.

In addition to private practice, I also practice as an Honorary Psychotherapist at Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest, working with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures on a wide range of psychological issues. I specialise in supporting people to manage and overcome issues related to anxiety, depression and self-confidence and have facilitated the group ‘Understanding and Managing Anxiety’ at the service.

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.

Accessibility

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.
