About me

Hello and welcome to my profile. I am a registered psychotherapist based in central London.

How I can help you

As an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor, I help people to work through whatever difficulties they face using ‘talking therapy', in a secure and confidential setting. This may take the form of:

  • short-term counselling to help people in distress facing a particular issue, often something that has happened recently, such as relationship breakdown, bereavement, redundancy, etc
  • longer term psychotherapy to help people overcome more deep-rooted problems that may have troubled them for some time such as anxiety, depression or a repeating or consistent negative pattern that they want to break
  • personal development work; helping people to work out who they are, where they are going with their life and to overcome whatever is holding them back so that they can be more effective and get more out of their lives.

The type of therapy that I offer

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist which simply means that I work with the unconscious processes that influence our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. I often think of it as the unseen (but powerful) programming of the mind. This programming occurs as a result of our life experiences often, but not always, from our early years.

Research has shown that, working in this way often leads to definite and longer lasting change and it is for this reason that psychodynamic therapy is often recommended as an effective treatment for a range of emotional and psychological problems.

I also have a broad awareness of many other counselling models and techniques. I often find that just having someone impartial to talk to in confidence, who is able to listen to you with respect, empathy and insight is enough to help you to begin feeling better.

Who I work with

I work with a diverse range of adults from many different backgrounds and experiencing a wide range of issues. I work on a one-to-one, face-to-face basis.

I have a special interest in helping people who are experiencing:

  • Relationship issues.
  • Work related issues.
  • Distressing life-stage changes: leaving home, ‘quarter and mid-life crisis’, divorce, retirement, aging.
  • Confusion or doubts about personal identity and life purpose.
  • Loss: bereavement, relationship breakdown, redundancy.
  • Anxiety: confusing, unhelpful and destructive negative thinking patterns.
  • Depression: feeling low, emotionally exhausted, broken and unable to cope.

What you can expect

Please contact me for a brief, informal telephone call. Then, I offer an Initial Consultation to enable me to understand what has brought you to therapy and for me to think about the best way to help you. This also gives us a chance to meet face to face, discuss any concerns or questions that you may have and see how we feel about working together.

Training, qualifications & experience

You can be reassured that:

  • I have undertaken several years training with one of the UK’s most reputable training institutions, recognised for its academic rigour and high clinical standards.
  • I am a fully registered member of the BACP, UKCP and FPC and I am bound by their respective codes of ethical practice and professional conduct.
  • perhaps most importantly, I have undertaken several years of therapy myself, so I know exactly what it feels like to be in the client’s chair.

Professional registrations and qualifications

  • Registered Member MBACP (No.375570), UKCP (No.2011170874), FPC (35882669)
  • Licensed to Practice Once-Weekly Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (Clinical Qualification, WPF Therapy)
  • Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice (University of Roehampton)
  • Enhanced DBS (working with vulnerable adults)

I teach trainee counsellors at Clinical Diploma level on a BACP-accredited psychodynamic counselling course.

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.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

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.

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.
