About me

I am a qualified accredited therapist specialising in Online Psychotherapy registered with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) Also a member of the Philadelphia Association Hampstead London. I have worked in mental health for charities such as Mind also in NHS mental health services and Mammography services screening women for breast cancer

I have a strong interest in the healing capacity of the arts and have worked in an NHS Mental Health Trust seeing individuals and facilitating therapeutic groups using clay, ceramics and mixed media. I also work for the Philadelphia Association's Psychotherapy Clinic.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Philadelphia Association (UKCP 6 year accredited training).
  • Registered Member of UK Council for Psychotherapy
  • Registered Member of British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • Diagnostic Mammography
    South Bank University
  • BA (Hons) 2:1 Humanities

As a member and the current representative of the Philadelphia Association I am also a member of CPJA (the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis which is a College of UKCP).

I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities at the University of West London. I have always had an interest in the arts and the potential for creativity in personal expression. The arts are another language expressing the deeper, less known and less rational parts of who we are as human beings. I have always been interested in experimenting with different materials such as glass, claywork, ceramics, mixed media, poetry and literature.

I have 25 years or more of personal experience exploring psychoanalysis and other inner growth work such as eastern philosphy and meditation. I believe in its potential to help people discover who they really are and the ease that can come from inner knowledge and understanding and an inner sense of well-being independent of external circumstances.

  • I also have an interest in philosophy about the nature of 'Being' and whether 'Authenticity' is possible and what it means to live a meaningful life. I explored these subjects in various forms over the past years as part of my psychotherapy training at the Philadelphia Association. This included the exploration of Existentialism, Jean Paul Sartre, Kierkegaard, Martin Heidegger, western and eastern philosophy.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.

About Counselling & Psychotherapy

Both Sigmund Freud the Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist, and founding father of psychoanalysis plus others, such as the radical psychiatrist and psychotherapist of the 1970s R.D. Laing, believed that as people we are not transparent to ourselves; and therefore do not know ourselves as well as we think. We can be divided against ourselves, hence you might not always be aware of the reasons for doing what you do and find yourself on occasions sabotaging your efforts. You might also find yourself repeating unwanted or addictive behaviours or having feelings or thoughts that appear to be out of your control. You might have tried to combat these out-of-control aspects of yourself with self-help techniques alone and found that they did not resolve the problem. You might then wonder why this is so and wonder what the answer to this dilemma is.

How does counselling and psychotherapy respond to these issues?

Psychotherapy is a process and conversation over time that explores how the past influences the present and how this can be understood.

Both counselling and psychotherapy are ways of talking that can help you to begin to look at your life and your way of being in the world. It is about beginning to piece together and become aware of repeating patterns of behaviour and experiences that have not worked for you. Talking in this way with a professionally trained person can offer new and creative ways of thinking about your life.

It is through the therapeutic relationship that problematic aspects of your life can be addressed, thought about, and their meaning understood. This is because talking in a safe and confidential space to someone who really listens to you can have a profound effect. It is through this unique and special kind of conversation that deep and lasting change can occur.
