About me

I'm an accredited and experienced psychotherapist. I offer a warm, supportive and non-judgemental space in which you can begin to understand your experiences, modify old patterns and identify new possibilities.

During the coronavirus outbreak, I am offering phone/Zoom sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I undertook my professional training at WPF Therapy, one of the leading academic and clinical institutions for psychotherapy, gaining a BACP-accredited postgraduate diploma with distinction.  Alongside my private practice, I worked for several years within the NHS as an honorary psychotherapist at the City and Hackney Specialist Psychotherapy Service.  I currently work at Queen Mary University within the student advice and counselling service.  I also teach on the WPF postgraduate diploma course in psychodynamic theory and practice.

I have experience of working with people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures and across all age groups. I'm a member of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and adhere to these associations' professional codes of ethics.

Further information

Before starting therapy, I offer an initial consultation.  This gives us the opportunity to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and what your hopes and anxieties might be. It also allows you to get a sense of my way of working and decide whether I am the right therapist for you.

If we agree to work together, I would offer 50 minute sessions on the same day and at the same time each week. I work on a long-term (open-ended) basis.

I am regulated by a comprehensive code of professional ethics and guidelines, which includes a commitment to client confidentiality.

During the coronavirus outbreak, I am offering phone/Zoom sessions.
