I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, and a registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide therapy online and face to face in Central London.
I believe my clients have different needs when looking for therapeutic support. Through a holistic, personalised approach, I can support you to make significant improvements in your mental well-being and navigate decision making that is right for you.
I have over 10 years experience working as a counsellor and psychotherapist with individuals of various age groups and diverse backgrounds. Practicing in both the United States and the United Kingdom, I have worked with clients in the NHS and in private practice exhibiting a range of difficulties that impact their lives and cause them emotional and psychological distress.
The approach to my practice is integrative which allows me to draw from various therapeutic modalities to tailor therapy to your individual and unique needs. Some modalities I utlise include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Person Centred, Existential, Psychodynamic and Solution Focused. I believe that you should be at the centre of the therapeutic process, and my role is to support you to find your own meaning and access important support networks and resources to sustain overall well-being.
I specialise in working with a range of difficulties; some of which are below:
Generalised Anxiety Disorder/Panic attacks
Depression or feeling sad
(OCD) Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Abuse and Trauma
Low self confidence
Bereavement and grief
I also specialize in working with the LGBTQ+ community, particularly those struggling with their gender and sexual orientation or those who have experienced discrimination due to their sexual orientation. I also completed significant therapeutic work with BAME clients, and supported individuals who experienced racial/ethnic discrimination.

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.
