About me

I am passionate about psychotherapy as a means to effect real and lasting change. After many years’ consideration and experience I decided to pursue a professional career as a therapist.

I chose psychodynamic therapy as it strongly resonates with me. My experience has shown me that the psychodynamic approach is highly effective in getting to the heart of what can be troubling someone, and engender a long-term, sustainable change.

I believe that our earliest experiences shape the way that we relate to others in later life. Having the space to explore this in a non-judgmental way can be a transformative and helpful experience. Therapy is valuable if you are currently in a crisis or find that you would like to deepen your understanding of yourself and the way you function in the world.

You can expect a confidential, safe and highly professional relationship in a caring and containing environment allowing you to explore past and present difficulties. We will use the relationship that develops between us to understand how you relate to others in a wider context. It can be difficult work, but ultimately a very rewarding experience.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have undergone four years of study to gain my qualification in Psychotherapy, and am academically trained at one of the most highly regarded institutions in London, WPF.

I have over ten years experience of working as a therapist in number of different settings, including working in the NHS and co-facilitating a group working with addictive behaviours.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
