I am a BPC and MBACP registered psychodynamic psychotherapist and an HCPC registered mental health practitioner. I trained at the Tavistock Centre in Inter-Cultural Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. My experience comprises 11 years of working for the NHS and the private sector. I have worked with a wide and diversified range of clients including the LGBTQ community. I view the sessions as a unique encounter between two people and would like to accompany you in your journey to discover your true self. I see it as vital to create a safe setting which will enable your unconscious to surface, thereby shedding light on the underlying causes of your distress.
My extensive NHS experience allowed me to acquire in-depth understanding of anxiety, depression, trauma, stress and personality disorders. In additionI have a wide experience in working with LGBTQ clients with special interest in relationships and LGBTQ parenting. Lastly, I am greatly interested in difficulties pertaining to migration and relocation. I am fully committed to diversity and equality and welcome clients of all gender, sexual or racial identities.
Starting therapy could be nerve-racking and there may always be a tendency to keep brushing things aside in hope that they will get better over time. Unfortunately this may hold many back from getting the help that they need and deserve. Please do not remain alone and isolated with your difficulties. Do reach out to me or to anyone else who might help.

I am BPC and BACP registered.
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.
