Psychotherapist, near Bond Street, London W1

About me

I try to help people think about issues like stress, self-doubt, depression, identity, anxiety, relationship issues, ageing, anger, grief, sexuality, guilt, life goals, death, family issues, abuse, and other challenges and uncertainties in living.

My style is relaxed and conversational - I'm not there to analyse, cure or advise you, but to help you explore your own issues at a pace that you feel comfortable with.

My role is that of a companion to think alongside you as you face your concerns and possibilities.  My aim is to listen to you, and allow you to examine your experience, thoughts and feelings in a way that helps you understand yourself better, make new choices if you want to, or simply share things you feel unable to tell friends or family. 

Online video sessions

I offer online video (e.g. Skype) sessions, as well as face-to-face sessions in Central London, near Bond Street, W1.

Training, qualifications & experience

My experience includes working as a counsellor/psychotherapist with in-patients at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, with students at London Metropolitan University, with low-cost counselling clients at the Claremont Project, with outpatients at Finchley Memorial Hospital, and with employees at the Metropolitan Police Service. I have also conducted intake assessments for psychotherapy clients at the Centre for Better Health in Hackney.

I have taught on courses in counselling and psychotherapy at the Minster Centre, Regents University, and the New School for Psychotherapy and Counselling.

I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling, and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy, both from Regent's University in London.

I also have an MSc in Organisation Consulting from Ashridge.

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.

UKCP

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.

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.

I see people in person on Wednesdays near Bond Street, London NW1. And I see people via online video sessions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

Further information

Whether in person or online, I see clients once a week at the same time each week normally, and the number of sessions is up to you - we can agree on a fixed number at the outset, or you may wish to leave it open-ended. I work with both short-term and longer term therapy.

In our first session we can discuss this and see what feels right for you.

If you'd like to start with a brief telephone call, I'm happy to answer questions before you make an initial appointment.

If you want to see me online, it may be useful to come see me initially in person, if possible, and have occasional face-to-face sessions after that. And if you prefer to see me in person, please note that occasionally some sessions may be online depending on our schedules.
